My name is Devin Lenzmeier and I am the new General Manager of MiNNBOX. If you didn’t see the introductory post that was shared about me, I decided to share a little about myself and what it has been like working for this amazing company for one month (I can’t believe its already been a month!!). I recently graduated with a degree in marketing at the University of Minnesota Duluth. I absolutely love the Duluth area and was really hoping to be able to stay upon graduation. Thankfully, I came across this wonderful opportunity at MiNNBOX.
When I first met with Paula and Dirk and heard about the mission behind their business, I knew it was going to be a great fit. I have always felt the proudest of my work when I am doing it for the greater good. The commitment to the environment that has been set by MiNNBOX is admirable in so many ways. Plastic has become so ingrained in our society that many of us do not think of the issues surrounding it. The more I learn about the problems that single use plastics bring to our planet, the more I am trying to educate those around me.
In one month at MiNNBOX, I see myself growing in ways that I didn’t even imagine. I have learned the ins and outs of what it takes to run a subscription box business. I have been in meetings with small local businesses that gave me such great happiness, and I have learned how many great local products Minnesota has to offer. Being able to network and meet the owners of businesses local to Minnesota has to be my favorite part of working for MiNNBOX so far. I know that I still have a lot to learn, but I cannot wait to see the kind of change that MiNNBOX brings to the Minnesotan communities. I cannot thank Paula and Dirk enough for asking me to join their team, and mentoring me along the way.
Cheers to a month at MiNNBOX, and knowing that the best is still yet to come!
