Leading national distributor of commercial supplies, equipment, and chemicals welcomes Eric Royse as new Chief Executive Officer

Chicago, IL (October 2023) Jon-Don, a leading supplier of commercial supplies, equipment, consumables, and know-how to specialty contractors, has welcomed Eric Royse as the new Chief Executive Officer.

Eric has been a member of the Jon-Don board for two years and is a seasoned distribution executive with over 25 years of experience in several different industries. Most recently, he was CEO at Continental Battery Systems for over five years.

The business increased 10-fold during Eric’s tenure, providing outstanding opportunities for employees, customers, and supply partners. 

Eric is a growth and commercial-oriented CEO with an impressive track record. He leads with passion, energy, and constant positive reinforcement. Eric is customer-centric in every sense of the expression and will bring his experience and “find a way” attitude to Jon-Don. 

“I am excited and honored to have this opportunity to lead such a great organization,” said Eric Royse. “Jon-Don provides essential products and services and has a market reputation to be proud of. I am confident we will provide an excellent growth platform for our team members, customers, suppliers, and investors.”

Reading, PA, Restoration Technical Institute proudly announces the launch of Learning Paths, a transformative component within their acclaimed Digital Training Solution. This breakthrough offering empowers companies to equip their teams with the tools that yield high-impact results with just a single click. Learning Paths consist of meticulously curated courses and activities, strategically designed to achieve specific learning outcomes.

By introducing interactive Learning Paths, Restoration Technical Institute redefines conventional training methods,
dismantling barriers and fostering a culture of continuous learning that engages the entire team and delivers tangible results.  It's a paradigm shift beyond mere content—it's about leveraging technology, adopting innovative methodologies, and comprehending the unique demands of businesses and learners alike.

"We recognize the dynamic pace and challenges inherent in our industry. Our approach and solutions are crafted to
overcome these hurdles. We do not stop; we listen to the needs of those we serve, identify pain points, and urgently work
towards solutions," stated Lisa Lavender, COO at Restoration Technical Institute.

Embracing Brinkerhoff's HPLJ (High-Performance Learning Journey) methodologies, based on four decades of extensive
research, and informed by the outcomes of traditional approaches, our methods harness the power of social learning. They tap into an organization's institutional knowledge, foster alignment, engage supervisors and learners, and dismantle the barriers entrenched in conventional training methods.

Learning is an ongoing journey within our organizations, whether deliberate or incidental. Whether learners engage in live
courses, eLearning, or follow a Learning Path, formal learning interventions, combined with a culture that embraces the
value of consistent on-the-job training and social learning, forge pathways to success in roles and career progression,
benefiting not only individuals but supervisors, teams, and organizations.

Recognizing that bridging the gap between learning and application accelerates results and outcomes, our resource library provides users access to an extensive repository of training materials, checklists, SOPs, and job aids. These resources facilitate just-in-time learning and serve as vital job aids in day-to-day operations. READ MORE.
