Get to know our President, Kyle Stephens
Describe your job in three words.
Relationships, execution, growth.
What is something people in your industry deal with that you want to fix?
Better quality products at lower minimum order quantities.
What are the values that drive you?
Throughout my career, even prior to owning my own business, I’ve always had the mentality to work like an owner no matter what position I’ve been in. This encompasses many things, but most notably, always being focused on a customer-first approach in addition to being hardworking. The hardest thing for me to do is to slow down and enjoy the ride… which I’m working on!
Who would you swap places with for a day?
I’ve always had an interest in understanding my wife’s day-to-day duties as the Health Officer of a local municipality. It seems like the variety of issues she deals with daily would be really interesting and it would be great to understand what your better half and community is dealing with when it comes to communicable disease, environmental health, health equity, mental health, etc.
What did you aspire to be as a kid?
After my “professional athlete” dreams passed, I wanted to be an attorney. Ended up a boring accountant...
What is your favorite canned beverage?
On the non-alcoholic side, I’ve recently taken a liking to prebiotic sodas like Poppi and Culture Pop. They seem like a little healthier way to still get the sweetness and fizz I love in a beverage. As for alcoholic beverages, this time of year (spring) you’ll probably find either Daisy Cutter or Pseudo Sue in my fridge, but it rotates often.
