This week, the Allshred team had a chance to catch up with the Columbus, Ohio sales representative, Jeren Luken. Jeren brings with him a diverse sales and management background and has been selling document shredding services in Columbus, Dayton and Cincinnati for over a year, now.
Do you have any nicknames? I was nicknamed Bubba by a family friend when I was born saying “He doesn’t look like a Jeren, he looks like a Bubba.” My nieces still call me this today.
What was your first job? I worked construction doing whatever needed to be done from roofing to cleaning up.
Why do you love working for Allshred Services? I love working for Allshred Services because it has a family owned, small company feel where I feel comfortable calling anyone including Willie but has the infrastructure and footprint of a large corporation to be a large player in the destruction industry.
What is the best part about working in the document destruction industry? I feel the best part of working in the document destruction industry is getting to meet so many new people and getting to protect many others information private,that I never get to meet!
What is the one major thing that you do to set you apart from the competition? The one thing that I feel sets me apart from my competition would be my personability. I make sure to hand deliver proposals, meet with every customer and hand-write Thank you’s.
Favorite Sports Teams? Graduating from THE Ohio State University I will also be a die hard Buckeye fan but I am a life long Cincinnati Bengals and Reds fan.
If you could be any animal, what would it be and why? The animal that I would love to be would be a gazelle. Not only for their speed but for their quickly changing direction to escape danger.
What was the last book you read? George Washington’s Secret Six
Any quotes or exciting things you’d like to add? “Don’t worry about those who talk behind your back, they’re behind you for a reason”
There you have it, folks! Straight from Jeren’s mouth to your computer screen. If you or your company would like a free paper shredding quote, give Jeren Luken a shout or send him an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
