We recently sat down with Steve to learn a little about him and his experience as a member of the Benjamin Office Supply Family.
How long have you worked at Benjamin Office Supply?
Just shy of 4 years.
Which department do you work in and what is your role there?
I work in Sales as a Senior Account Executive.
What is an “average” workday like for you?
I start out with a 6:30am workout at the gym to get my body and mind strong for the day. Then I catch up on a few emails and plan my day. It usually consists of some cold calling or prospecting. Then I visit a few of my regular customers and make sure everything is good with them or see if they need anything from me. Mid-late afternoon I come back to the office and respond to emails and voice mails from clients.
What’s your favorite part about working at Benjamin?
I love the team atmosphere and camaraderie that we have developed. Everyone has a super-positive attitude and is more than willing to help each other out so at the end of the day we all succeed.
I also love working with my customers and putting a smile on their face at the end of the day, knowing that I made their day just a little easier by helping them out.
If you could take one book, movie, or music album with you to a desert island, what would it be?
Jimmy Buffet’s Greatest Hits album! Listening to his music always relaxes me and puts me in a great mood.
What’s your favorite way to relax?
Believe it or not I love to exercise! A relaxing time for me is to go out and ride 2-30 miles on the bike. It gives me an opportunity to let my mind wander away from everything bad going on in the world today. I have a chance to collect my thoughts.

I would truly love to go to South Africa on a safari. I love watching all the nature and animal shows on TV and it has always been a dream of mine to go one day.
