New Tech Packaging: Thinking Outside The Box

I had the privilege recently to meet with Chamber member, New Tech Packaging’s J.C. Heotis Jr., president, and Mike Mathias, vice president of business development, to find out more about their business. I knew beforehand that they developed packaging for various household names, some you would recognize. I was surprised to learn that they save their customers money by developing more efficient methods of packaging, and because of this, they have become more profitable. Also, New Tech values employees with problem solving and creative skills over a sales background. The way they see it, a good business is having the best customer service.

Nominate a Young Memphian!

Troy Glasgow
Shelby County Mayor Luttrell said, "The continued future growth of our community rests on the backs of our young professionals." We couldn't agree more.
It's that time of year again. Memphis Crossroad Magazine's annual Young Memphis issue is coming up and that means we need your nominations!  Do you know someone under 40, lives in Memphis, Tenn., and who, through their work, is pushing Memphis toward greatness? I bet you do. In Memphis we have a plethora of talented, young individuals who work in the arts, in business, and in the community, being innovative and creative.
