Employee Spotlight - Shane Ackerman
Congratulations Shane Ackerman on 26 Years with Keyston Bros!
I grew up in northern Illinois and moved to Southern California as a senior in high school. My parents didn’t like the ground shaking and moved back after a few years. I loved it, but after 35 years finally made it back home to Chicago. My son lives about a half hour away, and parents are only a few hours drive. It has been great to see everyone on the holidays and catching up with old friends. However I do miss So Cal very much!!!
What brought you to Keyston Bros?
I took a couple months off after my last job and when I started looking for work, a friend set up an interview in Anaheim for me. Guess it went OK!
What has been your favorite memory from working here?
Meeting so many different people and making some great friends along the way. The sales meetings are always fun. Seeing old faces and meeting the newer employees. The banquet and after party is always memorable.
What is your favorite product/item we sell?
It was always partners vinyl and leather for a long time. Now contract vinyls are fun for me. There are great choices in many different lines. Its cool having our own lines. Better price, better margin, and usually more stock on hand.
What do you do in your free time?
Love to go to my parents lake house and chill out! If there is a Cubs or Cowboys game on, I will probably be watching as I cry. Being closer to my son has been great, we get to hang out and see each other much more.
What is one thing you can’t live without?
Chicago Cubs Baseball!! 2016 was a great time to be a lifelong Cubs fan. Too bad its back to the old Cubs once again!
What is one thing no one knows about you?
If I tell you, everyone will know!!!
