– National Envelope is pleased to announce that John Schlich is returning to the company as a consultant. In his new role, John will focus on implementing standardized quality processes and metrics across the organization, as well as on improving printing capabilities, quality, and other areas that directly impact customer satisfaction.
John’s background includes a 26-year career with Atlantic Envelope Company, where he served as President after holding positions in the sales & marketing and operations departments. His strategic leadership resulted in improved sales and reduced operating costs, which were critical to the successful sale of the company to National Envelope Corporation (NEC) in 2006. During his tenure with Atlantic Envelope Company, John launched its Six Sigma Program and was certified as a trainer for Learning International’s Professional Selling Skills Program.
After the sale of Atlantic Envelope Company to NEC, he served as the Chief of Process Improvement for NEC and helped to reduce quality defects, improve efficiency, and cut costs. He was instrumental in improving printing capabilities and creating a revised, more effective system for graphics support.
John left NEC in June of 2009 and joined Kelly Capital as President of the Earl Scheib Paint and Body Company. He ultimately became an investment analyst with Kelly Capital.
“We are thrilled to have John back with National Envelope,” said CEO, Kenneth Winterhalter. “As we continue our focus on improving quality and our customers’ experience, I expect John’s wealth of knowledge will have an immediate impact.”
Mr. Schlich served for eight years as Chairman of the Postal Affairs Committee for the Envelope Manufacturers Association and as a member of the Mailers Technical Advisory Committee to the Postmaster General of the United States. He has served on the Board of Directors for the Envelope Manufacturers Association and was voted their Member of the Year in 2002.
“I’m excited to return to National Envelope,” John stated. “I am very much looking forward to streamlining our quality processes and providing our customers with even better products and a wider array of services. Expect great things as we forge ahead!”
