OAKtober serves as the official month of Oaktree Products during which time the premiere employee-appreciation event referred to as OAKtoberfest takes place. While the official company color of Oaktree Products is green, this OAKtober, the employees of Oaktree Products, including the precious Sassy B. Kemp, are all RED in honor of the St. Louis Cardinals’ unexpected albeit much deserved ticket to the 2011 World Series!
The employees of Oaktree Products truly make this a great place to work and the tip of the Oaktree Products cap goes to all of them! Pictured from left to right in the photo to the left are Alison, Barb, Margaret (Bob Kemp’s mom!) and Michael. Alison and Michael work in Marketing, Barb is our buyer, and Miss Margaret works hard in assembly. To the right is Nick who works in assembly with Miss Margaret and, as clearly shown in the picture, always has a smile on his face! He is the biggest St. Louis Cardinals Fan in the Universe and married to Julie in Customer Service. Speaking of customer service, to the left we have most of the customer service team including (left to right) Dana, Mary Ellen, Maggie, Anne, and Barb, our receptionist who remains busy answering and directing incoming phone calls all day long.
We have a great group of guys working their tails off in the warehouse, receiving product inventory as well as making sure orders are picked, packed and shipped as quickly as possible. From left to right we have Phil (Philly-Cream-Cheese as I call him), Lance, Mike, Mike, and Mike. Yes, if your name is Mike, you can work at Oaktree Products too! Tari, shown left, is in Returns and Repairs and is married to Philly-Cream-Cheese. And what would Oaktree Products be without the longest employed, full-time employee in Sweet Carolyn of Purchasing, also known as “CC” (shown right).
We also have Nancy (aka “Steiny”) wearing Cardinals red and Sue in Cardinals blue, both who stay busy in accounting and finance. Sue is also the official keeper of the company candy jar located in her office and that by itself is a full-time job since we love our candy over here at Oaktree Products!
Last, but certainly not least, we have owners Bob and Margy Kemp, the King and Queen of Oaktree Products who treat their employees like royalty. I feel extremely fortunate to be a member of the Oaktree Products family and appreciate the opportunity to come to work every day where I can apply my creativity and use my technical knowledge and skills in an effort to make positive contributions to a great company. Thank you to everyone at Oaktree Products for all you do, every day and have a happy OAKtober!!!!!!!!!
