Hi, I am Mark De Jong.
I grew up in Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada on a small hobby farm raising and showing everything from rabbits and dairy cows to llamas. Yes you read that right…Llamas. I still have a herd of about 30 llamas today and live on 4.5 acres of heaven.
Growing up, I always had a love for business. As a kid, I would be found selling anything from the fruit I picked off the trees on our farm to rocks I collected and painted. I was always looking for a way to make a buck and satisfy a customer.
As I finished my undergraduate degree, I started my first business washing commercial trucks and heavy equipment. I sold this business 4 years later. Since then, I have consulted and worked for a large multinational distribution company.
Today, I work with customers and their companies with revenues ranging from one million to about one billion. I work consistently at applying Lean with my customers to their packaging and manufacturing processes. I am investing in and acquiring small and medium businesses with 4P Partners. I believe there is always a new challenge to take on and conquer.
