Gerry and I are incredibly pleased to announce that effective January 1 2021, Doug Jackson from Athens Tennessee has joined the global Stone Industry Group as our Chief Technical Officer for North America
Doug Jackson earned his degree in electronics engineering in 1994 and has owned a successful business for more than 20 years. Through the years that has meant playing many different roles such as sales, consulting, planning, designing, customer service and, of course, technician.
For the last 15 years, he has traveled extensively throughout North America providing technical services for the natural stone industry and became a well-known source for distributors, manufacturers and shop owners alike. This has allowed him to communicate with many different personalities often under times of high tension.
Doug has organized, planned and executed many shop relocations, equipment upgrades, trainings and field repairs. Communication is one of his strongest points.
Outside of work, he and his wife of almost 27 years, Stephanie, enjoy traveling, live sporting & music events and just spending time together. They have one daughter, Korynne and one grandson, Lucas, are active in their church and enjoy spending time with their large, extensive families and circle of friends, both are Tennessee natives.
Doug has been working with us for some time on the Turrini USA side of the operation and we have been incredibly impressed with his diligence, work ethic, attitude and he is also quite funny – sometimes ….
We have been increasingly looking in a more permanent – and much much bigger – direction which will become apparent in the coming weeks.
Stay tuned for some very exciting updates from Stone Industry Group.
More importantly, from the ever growing team, a huge and warm welcome aboard Doug !
