15 Sep Meet the M&M Team – Byron Overley
Time to meet another M&M Sales team member! Today we introduce Byron Overly, our Houma Division Manager. Byron joined our team a little over 10 years ago, and Byron has worked in the vending industry for over 20 years, having worked for Coca-Cola Enterprises for 10+ years prior to coming to work with us. Byron also has 4 years of managerial experience in the food and beverage industry with Piccadilly Cafeterias prior to his employment with Coca-Cola.
Byron says his favorite thing about working for M&M Sales is the people he works with on a daily basis.
“Mr. Chuck and Mrs. Frances have established an environment of cooperation and collaboration between divisions in order to achieve a common goal of success for the company as a whole. They are very involved and supportive owners who personally interact with employees at all levels in each division and are always available to provide the support and assistance needed for success. They have established and promoted an environment in which every employee is important and valued. Because of this, and perhaps mirroring ownership, employees in all capacities and divisions throughout the company seem to work together for the common good of the company,” said Byron Overly.
Byron and his wife, Jeri, have been married for 20 years and the couple has two children together, Brooke and Byron, who are 19 and 17 respectively. Jeri currently teaches English at H.L. Bourgeois High School where she has been in a teaching and/or coaching capacity for the past 21 years. Brooke is a sophomore at Nicholls State University where she is majoring in Psychology while Byron will start his senior year at H.L. Bourgeois H.S. and will play varsity baseball.
Byron’s hobbies include running, cycling, and weight training. On weekends he and Jeri enjoy watching New Orleans Saints and LSU football games with family and friends, cooking or boiling seafood outside, and attending concerts in the New Orleans/Mississippi Gulf Coast area.
Byron was born in Houma, Louisiana and he has lived most of his life between Houma and New Orleans with a brief period of residence in Houston, TX after graduating from college. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a major of Accounting from Nicholls State University in 1992.
Tune in next month to meet more of our team!
