Our Happy Employees

Amber Bacon, Product Marketing Specialist

Trent Lattimore, Packaging Engineer

"Coming from a larger, publicly-held company, I can attest to the family atmosphere the Great Lakes Cheese environment brings to the table. From the production floor to the front office, everyone is ready to help you accomplish your goals, and does so with a smile. All employees want to see the company succeed, and there's a true sense of teamwork anywhere you go." Trent Lattimore, Packaging Engineer

Erin Shirkey, Director of Sales Operations

"Great Lakes Cheese was not the place I originally expected to find a career, but it's now a place I truly appreciate. With hard work and great mentors, I've been able to advance into new roles as my experience and skills have developed. I've worked here for almost 20 years, but each day, I still continue to learn and be challenged." Erin Shirkey, Director of Sales Operations

Mark Gray, Customer Service Representative

"I’ve been employed with GLC for over 20 years. After hearing from several friends who were working here, especially about the ESOP plan and job security, I decided to exit the construction field for a new career. I’m so glad I made that decision, and the experience of working in both production and the front office has been challenging and rewarding. Being able to participate and contribute to a steadily growing family-oriented business, as an employee-owner, and with the best benefits in the industry, has kept me firmly planted here at GLC." Mark Gray, Customer Service Representative

Nick Ruskiewicz, Sales Operations Coordinator

To work in an office atmosphere where the company succeeds by others doing for others to achieve goals regardless of departments is truly eye opening! Great Lakes Cheese is a very large company that feels like a very large family to me. I’m so excited being part of this GLC team and having the opportunity to participate and contribute to such a successful company."Nick Ruskiewicz, Sales Operations Coordinator
