April Meeting

Speaker: Jared Hopkins

Jared is a 2002 graduate of the Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC. After USC he held a variety of positions in both the real estate and the packaging industries. In 2004, he just happened to talk to an old family friend that had a resin and silicone distribution company. They were looking for a sales representative and he was looking for an opportunity. He has been in the resin plastic and elastomer business ever since! He brings over six years of out-side technical sales and two years of inside technical support to the seminar. This experience along with many trade shows and hands on seminars in fields as diverse as concrete construction and medical simulation to machine tooling and prototyping always make for an interesting hands-on demonstration.
