It’s time for another Employee Spotlight! We just had the opportunity to hear from our Director of Production and Manufacturing, Melanie McMahon Ives, and today we are introducing Marlon Berreondo. Marlon is our Warehouse Manager he’s answered a few questions so that everyone can get to know him a little better.

Tell us about your history with Peachtree.

I moved from Southern California to Georgia and a few months after that I started working for Peachtree Publishers. It’s been a good experience working in an environment where people work hard and contribute in a big way towards children’s education. This coming October will mark my two year anniversary with Peachtree Publishers.

I’ve been working in this field for the last 29 years. I’ve worked in warehouses that produce electronics, telecommunications equipment, aircraft parts, and chemicals. Working with books is a lot of fun though!

What is your favorite thing about working at Peachtree?

Knowing the positive impact books have on children.

Do you have any big interests or hobbies that you focus on outside of work?

I love bike riding, soccer, volley ball, reading, and of course working around the house.

If, in an alternate reality, you were to have gone a completely different career route, what would you have done?

I wanted to be an airplane mechanic. That was the reason why I attended Park West High School in NYC.
