Details for GEM STATE PAPER & SUPPLY CO HR - Ad from 2021-01-10



Larry has been a pillar of Gem State Paper
& Supply Company for 48 years.
He began his journey with us in 1972 in the warehouse and often helped
out as a driver. Larry’s eagerness to learn and helpful attitude was soon
recognized, and he was promoted to Warehouse Manager in February of 1976.
Two years later, Larry again climbed the ranks to the purchasing department as a
buyer, and later that year became the Purchasing Manager. He then took on the
Marketing responsibilities in addition to his Purchasing role in 1983. Larry was
well known for his master negotiating and for “making deals”. He continued his
career in Purchasing and Marketing until 1988 when he was promoted to Director
of Sales where he grew that department substantially over the next 30 years.
Please help us in congratulating Larry! We wish him luck and success in his future
on and off the golf course. Hopefully more on than off!
