We are a team that is passionate about the workplace. We’ve spent the last 70 years creating product solutions that work. But today’s workplace is rapidly changing. We’ve created a place to share ideas, to ask questions, to get answers. A place to educate, inspire, provoke, and learn.  But it’s not just about us. You’re an important part of our journey, and we want to hear from you. Let’s move forward together— creating a workplace that works as hard as you do.

Brooke Anderson, Solutions Account Associate

Blog_Brooke Anderson (Cropped)I began my career with The HON Company in June of 2015, following an education from St. Ambrose University. I enjoy the culture and the ability for continuous improvement and growth within the company. When I’m not sleeping nine full hours a night and making our dealer partners exceedingly satisfied, I enjoy martini’s, cooking (not baking),  exercising and spending time with obnoxiously large family!

Lindsay Berstling, Business Development Associate

Lindsay BerstlingThe only reason I ever even found out HON existed is the result of a study abroad trip in Rennes, France, so if you thought we weren’t a global company, think again! I joined the Solutions Account Group in June of 2014, and have since moved on to become a Business Development Associate in Columbus, OH. When I’m not out educating central Ohio on the latest and greatest that HON has to offer, you can find me cooking, at the symphony, or relaxing with my kittens, Billie and Oscar.

 

Abby Cassens, Business Development Associate

Abby Cassens

I graduated from St. Ambrose University in May 2014. Shortly thereafter, I began my career with The HON Company as a Solutions Account Associate. I enjoy working with a great group of young professionals and our dealer partners. Growing up in a small town, I enjoy the member culture that you can find at HON. Outside of work, I enjoy volunteering, biking, and spending time with family and friends.

Jackie Celske, Marketing Communications Specialist

JackieHaving grown up just 40 minutes from Muscatine, IA, I always knew that I’d be lucky to work for HON, and I still feel that way after joining the marketing team at the end of 2014. When I’m not playing the role of HON’s Tweeting-Hashtagging-Email-PR Ninja, I’m usually taking a spontaneous road trip, pretending my life is a musical, or planning my next (often unsuccessful) Pinterest craft project.

Lauren Foxwell, Material Design Optimization Engineer

I first joined HON as an engineering intern in the summer of 2015. I returned to finish up my last semester of Mechanical Engineering at Iowa State University, then started here in January 2016 as a member of the Early Career Development program. Today, I am a Material Design Optimization Engineer. I like to spend as much of my free time as possible traveling and being outdoors – always of course with my DSLR camera in hand!

Jessica Graham, Solutions Account Associate

jessica-grahamAfter graduation in May of 2016 from Iowa State University with my Bachelor of Science degree in Management and International Business, I started with HON as a Solutions Account Associate in June of 2016. I immediately fell in love with this industry, and the company culture here. Who knew office furniture could be so fun? J When I’m not working, I spend my time outdoors either playing soccer, hiking, or road tripping around the Midwest!

Kayleigh Green, Business Development Associate

KayleighI began at HON on a warm summer day…ok but seriously, I joined the company with a Sales Internship in June 2012.  After a great internship that exposed me to sales and the office furniture industry, I joined the team full-time in the Sales Leadership Development program.  Now I am your common office furniture geek who enjoys being with friends and family in my spare time.

Anna Miller, Customer Experience Manager

In February 2011, I began my HON journey in Customer Support as a Business Relations Specialist. Through the years, I’ve held the role of Customer Support Trainer and most recently, Customer Experience Manager. I’m a firm believer in the HON vision and our Rapid Continuous Improvement philosophy. I also enjoy horseback riding and yoga.

Bridget Nulty, Solutions Account Associate

After graduating from the University of Northern Iowa in May 2014, I started at HON in the Sales Leadership and Development Program and have progressed into my current role as a Solutions Account Associate.  I knew The HON Company would be the place for me when (1) I heard about the member culture (2) saw the opportunities for growth and development and (3) found out about Jean Day Friday!  In my free time I enjoy the outdoors (when it’s not winter in Iowa) and spending time with family and friends.

LB Peterson, Product Analyst

headshotlb

My favorite color is green. So when I met HON in the summer of 2013, I just knew we were meant to be. As a Product Analyst, I help support the product team which is really at the heart of our business. As a team, we are always HON Ready and working to make the best product solutions in the industry. When I’m not at work, I enjoy simple things like hosting family dinners, catching a football game with my friends, watching my husband play softball, or snuggling up with my pup.

Lindsey Petersen, MCR Development Program Rep

Lindsey PetersenI grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and recently graduated from Bradley University. I joined HON in my first rotation of the MCR Development Program and have loved every second so far! The people and opportunities are what get me going in the morning. In my spare time you’ll find me spending time with my family and friends, running, or even reading, but you definitely won’t find me cooking (anything good at least).

Whitney Potratz, IDS Supervisor

WhitneyI began my career with HON in 2010 as an Associate Designer and am now the supervisor of HON’s Integrated Design Solutions team.  I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Interior Design and have found my time at HON to be very exciting and enlightening.  When I’m not working I enjoy reading and spending time with my  family.

Natasha Salyars, Business Development Manager

NatashaI joined the HON team on my birthday in June 2012 as a Sales and Marketing Specialist in Muscatine, IA. I’ve spent my time at HON in the Sales Department as a Solutions Account Associate and Resource Center Manager, and now cover the New York market as a Business Development Manager. I enjoy helping others create unique and inspiring spaces, almost as much as I enjoy working with the awesome people at HON. Outside of work you can find me exploring as many new places as possible.

Liz Schulte, Business Development Associate

LizMy journey with HON began in May 2010 as the Marketing Intern. Since then I have worked with our Solutions Account, Sales Operations, and now our Field Sales team. Nowadays, I call Northern California my home. Spotting HON semis on the interstate happens to be one of my favorite pastimes… give them a honk!

Francesca Smith, Business Development Manager

FrancescaI’m currently based in Seattle as the Business Development Manager covering Washington state, Guam, and S. Korea territories. I started on the blog team a couple years ago but took a brief hiatus to learn the ways of the field (sales). Taking inspiration from my experiences as a sales member (as well as new surroundings of Mt. Rainier, the Space Needle, and hipster coffee houses), I’m excited to resume my spot on the blog team!

Callie Stark, Solutions Account Associate

blog_callie-starkI started with HON 2 ½ years ago in the Solutions Account Group, and I think my favorite thing about the company is probably the member culture! I know that’s a popular one, but the members here are truly amazing. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my pup, playing volleyball, and boating on the river. Anything in the sun is usually okay with me!

Andrea Whitton, Solutions Account Associate

AndreaI packed up and moved to Muscatine, IA in 2013 for a sales internship with HON, and fell in love with the warm company culture and quality furniture I knew I could stand behind and sell. Now, I’m a full-time Solutions Account Associate and the rest is history. When I’m not busy flipping over chairs and looking under desks for the HON logo, I enjoy binge watching Netflix series like Boardwalk Empire and bargain shopping at TJ Maxx or Mashalls.
