The questions our work answers is important whether we realize it or not. Since graduating from Endicott College and serving as Associate Director of Alumni Relations there while getting his MBA, Jay has been concerned with identifying answers about how technology exists in industries beyond high tech and why we in other industries don’t think of innovation that way.
After learning how to pound the pavement at xpedx International Paper, his seminal management experience as Regional Manager at Unger Enterprises brought him to the conviction that ergonomics is a conversation every industry can and should be having about the technology they have to offer. His expertise is with hand tools for cleaning, but he is learning about the importance of better safety and health concerns that factor into the chemicals in the Jan San industry.
Following a stint calling on the New York market in distribution as part of the sales team at EBP Supply Solutions, and in great part by what he learned there, more than two years ago his father Jeff Munroe and he began Lifespaces Innovation Group, LCC. They have since been joined in founding the company by other very talented professionals to create one of the most competitive management teams in the industry. His goal in business development and sales administration is to do what he can to make sure everything they sell is working toward the end goal of making people healthier than the alternative and more sustainable. Technology is only as good as the real impact it makes and value it helps us to create.
He is deeply grateful to have worked with smarter people in New York City and Boston than he ever expected to meet. Jay is most blessed to be married to his wife and board member of the non-profit she helped to found The Poet Acts, Danielle Bourgeois Munroe and to be Daddy to their two boys Micah and Gabriel. He loves to write and study theology and his dream is to serve the local church full-time and teach theology as a vocation. He and his wife most like to write and talk about their projects, along with visiting old estates and wildlife nature reserves.
