From Our Staff
Each day, we get to serve businesses from various industries with everything they need to keep their offices running. In celebration of Valentines Day, we would like to shine the spotlight on a couple of clients making a difference. We love working with all of our clients and are extremely proud of the ones below who range from offering essential services to the Madison community, to those committed to a better future for all Madisonians.
There’s so much to love about spring in Madison. May is my favorite month because of the nice weather and everything is in bloom throughout town. As May progresses, I ring in the “unofficial start of summer” in the most Wisconsinite way possible: Brat Fest. This festival features high quality brats, beer, ice cream, along with plenty of music and fun for the whole family. While there are many hours spent planning the event, it’s something I look forward to every year. Below are my three favorite things about Brat Fest.
We’re getting ready for the unofficial kick off to summer: Brat Fest 2016! Memorial Day Weekend is quickly approaching, and this event is one of the top reasons why we love spring in Madison. Our very own Rose, along with other Madison area businesses, have been working hard to make this year’s festival the best one yet. This year’s festival will once again take place from Friday, May 27 to Monday, May 30 on Willow Island near Alliant Energy Center. The festival is FREE to attend and all stages can be accessed without any fees.
More than ever, local businesses face unique challenges. EZ Office Products (EZOP) is always thinking about our future workforce in Dane County and why it is so important to our overall economic prosperity. This summer, we partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County (BGDC) and their mentoring program to participate in providing a meaningful professional experience. Meet Yee Lee, our 2017 summer intern. EZOP provided Yee with a multi-faceted experience — from understanding how we help customers, to distribution and the way in which we care for customer deliveries, to marketing and the importance of good graphics, and even going through the exercise of an executive briefing to our owners, Rose and Gary Molz. Here’s a little more about Yee and his work at EZOP this summer.
If you’ve called us on the phone, communicated by chat, or sent us an e-mail, you may have experienced the pleasure of interacting with Bonnie Conway, one of our customer service extraordinaires. Bonnie joined the EZOP team six years ago bringing experience from various companies as an administrative professional. We’ll give you an inside look of what Bonnie’s day looks like, and what she enjoys outside of work.
If your business is not on his route, it’s likely you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Dustin Morfey, one of our Delivery Service Representatives. Dustin joined EZ Office Products more than four years ago after relocating from Colorado where he worked as a physical therapy aid and personal trainer. His ties to Wisconsin began earlier when he studied business at the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater. Here’s more about Dustin’s role at EZOP along with what he enjoys when he’s not working…
Greg has been an integral part of the EZ Office Products’ family since our beginning in 2006. In fact, I give him due credit for kicking us off the ground with his hard work and determination as far back as 2002. Many may not know it, but we were “BF Molz Madison” back then and I was still living in New Jersey hoping to come home one day and launch EZ Office Products. That makes Greg employee numero uno in many ways. But, surprise #2, Greg is also my brother (lucky me). Our accounts receivable person, Marilyn, is his mother! Before working here, Greg was the operations manager for Corporate Express, since sold out to Staples, for both Madison and Appleton. He left the corporate world of conundrum to work with us so he could finally feel like he was making a difference. Greg shared his typical day at EZOP along with a personal hidden talent that you may not know about!
Meet the newest EZ Office Products employee, Jason Spink! Jason attended the Madison Area Technical College and ran his own taxidermy business before joining EZ Office Products. We’re excited to have him join our fleet of delivery service drivers, and for our customers to get to know Jason.
Meet one of our EZOPeops, Steve Schwenn. A graduate of Madison College, Steve joined our crew last year as one of our Delivery Service Reps. Before working at EZOP, Steve was a service sales rep for Cintas. Read more about Steve below.
Sports play a big role in our daily water cooler talk. Whether it’s about our Packers, Badgers, or even the Mallards, us Wisconsinites love our local teams. In fact, Amanda and I wrote a song to the tune of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” recently for a Dane Buy Local Silent Auction:
