With everyone back to work and the new year in full strength, we have decided to launch our 2016 AK Employee Spotlight Series. We have put together a fun list of questions for our employees to answer, giving them a platform to share a little bit more about themselves. We truly believe it’s important for our customers, vendors, employees and everyone else to get know our team at a more personal level. We begin this series with Adam Hansen, Adam has been a member of our inside sales team for four years now and is also involved in purchasing for our business.
