Pat Yonkus received a bachelor's degree in Economics and Business Management from DePauw University and an MBA in Finance from Loyola University. Prior to joining B2B Industrial Packaging, he was the general manager of Systemax's Dartek Division - which had 120 employees and sales over $80 million.
He left Systemax to help launch B2B Industrial Packaging in May of 2004, where he currently has full responsibility for a range of functions such as sales, marketing, supplier negotiations, and client relations.
Yonkus realized early on that, when it comes to packaging supplies and equipment, customers are extremely loyal to their providers. Knowing this, he and his sales team have worked very hard to earn their clients' trust and maintain strong bonds. To do this, he knows that personal service - especially listening - is key, but offering better products and better prices than competitors is also important.
As an accomplished athlete who believes in community service, he coached his daughter's softball team for six years and ran the St. Charles, Illinois girls traveling softball program.
