Our President, Jon Koucky, has 30 Years experience managing large Walmart accounts as their Walmart Manufacturer Representative. He began his career in 1987 in the IT department at Rubbermaid after completing a management training program that covered all functional areas of the business. When Wal-Mart introduced the beta version of Retail Link to the first group of 300 suppliers, he was moved to the Wal-Mart sales team in Joplin, MO to manage Retail Link. During his 10 years with Rubbermaid, he was responsible for sales and analysis for the $300 million dollar program at Wal-Mart.
In 1997 he left Rubbermaid when it was sold to Newell and took over the Wal-Mart sales team for Coleman Camping. When Coleman was acquired, he left to work with a Rep Group and in 2000 he formed Net-Vendor. Net-Vendor was formed to help companies around the world to successfully do business with Wal-Mart.
