DEER PARK, IL / ACCESSWIRE / June 28, 2022 / It is with great enthusiasm that business executive and sales and customer service expert T.J. Walker announces that he is the subject of a new, in-depth interview. The interview, which was conducted by an online periodical aimed at business people and entrepreneurs, is scheduled to be published in the latter part of June 2022.

Early in the piece, T.J. fields a question about what his typical day looks like and how he keeps it productive as a sales and purchasing executive, answering, "I start out each day by tracking the commodity market for movement and adjusting our internal prices accordingly, then I respond to urgent customer inquiries and time-sensitive issues. I then move on to checking our inventory systems and scheduling them to sell. At that point, I reach out to our operations team and discuss their needs and workflows. I make my days most productive by staying on task and delegating the appropriate work to well-selected team members."

Further along in the interview, T.J. Walker is asked to cite the strategy he credits most for the rapid growth of Elgin Recycling. "We've had a lot of success growing our business by spreading out across the various sectors of the scrap metal industry, as well as keeping our client mix evenly distributed between small, medium, and larger customers," he replies, before adding, "Also, another important strategy has been blending the ideas and processes of the founders of the company with those of the younger family members, directors, and executives."
