Jay Atienza, an Industrial Market Manager, services the western region of the United States for Thern. Jay has been part of the Thern team for a little over a year and has quickly learned what Thern is all about. Jay, not having much knowledge in the industry before being hired on with Thern, has learned, mostly through customers, that Thern has built a reputation of offering quality service and exceptional products.
Jay lives life on the run, which is also his favorite part about working with Thern. Jay enjoys how many different applications and industries our equipment can be used in. Jay can be interacting with a machine operator at a construction site one day, set designer for Star Wars Land at Disney Land the next, and an engineer at SpaceX the day after that.
This style fits Jay perfectly. In Jay’s free time, he loves to run. He is a volunteer Nike product tester for running shoes, testing and providing feedback on shoes that are still in product development. Other activities Jay likes to enjoy outside of work are spending time with his family, traveling, and eating…. then eating more.
Thern has given Jay an opportunity to be part of a group of people who take pride in what they do and has given him a chance to challenge himself to find meaningful ways to make a difference. Jay’s best piece of advice he has received is, “Don’t’ wait to appreciate your blessings”. Jay, you have been an integral asset to Thern and we appreciate what you bring to our team!
