John Neun Finds Great Satisfaction in Career, Industry
When asked what his favorite industry product was, TAPPI member John Neun answered without hesitation that it is a “Write-in-the-Rain” pad.
John was responding to the question as part of his appearance in December’s Member Spotlight, TAPPI’s popular, once-a-month online feature. That question, which is one of eight exploring members’ work histories, contributions to the industry and personal interests, focuses on the upcoming Centennial Celebration and allows for those in the Spotlight to reflect on what they believe have been the most significant breakthroughs in industry areas.
Some of John’s other observations include an enthusiastic review of his current position at Albany International (I have the best job in the world!”), as well as the many benefits associated with his 30-plus year membership (“The technical professionals that make up TAPPI make membership and involvement very rewarding, and a lot of fun.”).
Find out more by reading this month’s Member Spotlight. Spotlight participants are recommended by fellow members and staff. If you would like to nominate a member just send their name (or names) to mailto: MemberSpotlight@tappi.org. We will forward a Spotlight Questionnaire to fill out and return.
We look forward to seeing you in the Spotlight!
