Mid-America Packaging ‘Scales Up’ with Verne Harnish

March, 3rd 2024 – St. Louis, MO 

On Friday, at AJ Adhesives/Mid America Packaging Headquarters in St. Louis, we were fortunate to host Verne Harnish of Scaling Up.  Verne’s best-selling book, “Mastering the Rockefeller Habits” has been Andy Schwartz’s platform for the past 20 years.  The Management Team has been to several of Verne’s 2-day Leaning Events, gaining insight on best practices, culture, and implementation.

“Having Verne as a coach, mentor, and friend for the past 22 years has been instrumental to our growth,” says Andy Schwartz.  Focusing on People/Strategy/Execution/Cash, and staying focused has been the differentiator.  Hosting Verne for the day is an amazing opportunity to learn from and be with the best.  AJ Adhesives, Inc. was named Top 50 Fastest Growing Private Companies in St. Louis for 2023.  “We could not have achieved that milestone without Verne as our coach.”
