It’s a new year, folks, and we’ve got some new faces at L&P! During the next few weeks, we’ll be introducing you to several of our recent hires and their thoughts on the year ahead.
Meet Tony Robyn, Sales Program Manager for the Consumer Products Group. He started with us in September.
What brought you to Leggett?
I worked within the environmental field in project management for over 20 years, but I was ready for something a little different. Now I’m working with adjustable beds; how’s that for a change?
I know a few people who work for L&P and had always heard great things about the company. Also, when I worked for a national environmental non-profit, I approached L&P to be a community advocate for one of my bigger projects. The company was very receptive and supportive, and I never forgot that.
What’s something surprising about you?
My career history is pretty diverse. I have a degree in Natural Sciences, then later studied Business Administration. My project management and environmental experience comes from working for organizations such as the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, the Kansas City Zoo, the National Audubon Society, and the City of Joplin.
What’s your biggest goal for 2018?
Since I started at L&P, I’ve picked up multiple projects, but all at different points in the development cycle. In 2018, I’d like to own a project from the very beginning – from design and development until the Las Vegas Market (a tradeshow where we showcase many of our products).
