It was about a dozen years ago, but Deby Koniowsky of our Youngstown operation clearly remembers the time consuming work of taking and confirming orders over the phone from sales professionals in the field.
“It was always a frantic race to get it all done,” she says. “It’s amazing how far computers and technology have brought us!”
Today, Deby handles accounts receivable for the Youngstown office and “checks in” drivers when they return from their routes. Every driver must balance the day’s invoices and payments received, so Deby is there to check the math or help solve a problem.
“There are only three people on our administrative team, so we all work closely together to make sure the office runs smoothly,” says Deby.
“Everyone here truly cares about each other, from the warehouse and drivers to the sales team and management. I think that’s why our growth in Youngstown has been so outstanding over the last several years.”
Away from the office Deby spends time with her family, including a young grandson, her wide range of pets and many craft projects.
