The Vernon Company Hires New Director of Administration
The Vernon Company, Newton, Iowa, has hired Shannon Bergman as director of administration, effective Sept. 1.
Bergman comes to The Vernon Company with a strong service, branding and sales background. Most recently, she worked for Newton Manufacturing as sales service manager, and held leadership roles at The Maytag Company and West Bank.
In this position, Bergman will assume management responsibilities for The Vernon Company's administrative managers and support staff, including pre-sales, customer service, order department and sales support.

From helping [account executives] find the right products to getting orders to suppliers, resolving order issues and so much more, these departments are the best-kept secret to Vernon’s success over the last 100-plus years. We couldn’t do it without them.”
