At RJ Young, we work with customers to establish true partnerships that provide innovative solutions to their needs. A prime example of an employee who truly works to meet the needs of our clients is Steve Goldstein.
Steve Goldstein has been a member of the RJ Young family since 2011 and works as a sales representative for our digital printing, promotional, and apparel division. As a representative, Steve works with clients to optimize their brand through digital printing, promotional items, and apparel.
Steve’s favorite part about his job is the partnerships he is able to have with clients. He is very passionate about protecting his client’s brand and working alongside them to develop the best solution to help them achieve success. Whether it is apparel or trade show banners, Steve enjoys that no two projects are the same and that each one has a unique design, budget, and purpose.
When Steve is not at work assisting partners, he can be found surrounded by friends and family at concerts and sporting events in Nashville, TN. Steve is a valuable asset to the RJ Young family. Thank you for all of the hard work and dedication you put into taking care of our clients.
At RJ Young, we love recognizing our employees for their hard work and contributions that improve both the culture and abilities of our company. We are excited to shine an employee spotlight on Morgan Bishop.
Morgan Bishop joined the RJ Young family back in October 2016 as a Customer Training Associate. Today, Morgan is serving as the IT Project Manager for RJ Young. Since starting at RJ Young, Morgan’s biggest accomplishment has been molding her position into one that allows for the implementation of collaboration between customers and her service team. She loves the chance to be able to work closely with both her co-workers and customers.
The main reason why Morgan says she loves working at RJ Young is that the positive company culture of RJ Young is truly reflected by all of its employees. She enjoys the fact that no two days are the same and that she is a part of a team where everyone enjoys collaborating and problem solving together. In her free time, Morgan likes to explore new hiking trails and camp with her fiancé. When she is not exploring the outdoors, Morgan can be found on Saturdays in the Fall watching Ole Miss football with friends.
Thank you for all the effort you put in to help take care of our customers, Morgan.
At RJ Young, we love recognizing our employees for all the hard work and effort they put into making our team work as effectively as possible. Our most recent Employee Spotlight goes to Chris Bethea who is a great example of an outstanding employee.
Chris joined the RJ Young family in 2003 when RJ Young purchased Copy Graphics in Mississippi, where he was employed. Bethea worked as the manager of the Hattiesburg office following this acquisition. Due to his exceptional work ethic and diligence, Bethea was afforded the opportunity to assist in opening the Pensacola office in 2014. Chris now holds the title of Sales Manager for the RJ Young offices in Mobile, Pensacola, and Tallahassee. He also works side by side with the Manager in Gulfport MS as that team continues to develop.
Since joining the RJ Young family, Bethea has said that his proudest accomplishment has been making the move from Hattiesburg to Pensacola, FL and “setting up the sales teams and infrastructure for the Panhandle and offices that we have today.” Chris appreciates the fact that every day at RJ Young is unique and that RJ Young is “willing to step out of the box in order to take care of both their employees and customers.”
Chris Bethea enjoys spending time with his family and doing anything outdoors – namely hunting and fishing. Thank you for all you do for the RJ Young team, Chris.
