Eric Hennings - "The Chief"

President

This Bronson, Iowa native founded College Products while attending the University of South Dakota.  He has worked over the past 20 years to grow the company to a national leader in the industry.  He is known for jumping in and helping in every aspect of the company from customer service to manual labor loading trucks.  This fun loving guy loves spending time with his wife and two children on the slopes in the winter and boating on the water in the summer months!

Reese Coffee - "The Rock"

Product Development & Logistics

This Beresford, South Dakota native spends his time perfecting our products.  Reese’s background in fabrication, mechanics, sales and logistics, allows him to focus on perfecting and expanding our product line.  With four years direct experience with College Products, Reese has become an integral cog in our team.  When not racing around our warehouses helping to guide our logistics and product development teams, he and his crew chief Kari can be found keeping the pace with their 4 kids at various sporting events.  When he can find the time, Reese can also be found racing in a modified stock car!

Jennifer Hokel - "The Zen"

Marketing, Bids & Procurement

Hailing from Youngsville, Pennsylvania this Slippery Rock University graduate traveled the nation working as a Residence Life Professional for 10 years while acquiring a Master’s degree in Higher Education Administration.  She has applied her knowledge and skill to help focus marketing efforts as well as gain/retain contracts for College Products over the last 4 years.  When she is not chauffeuring her three kids to elementary sporting events she spends her time at a local holistic wellness center offering Meditation Classes and Reiki sessions for clients.  That’s right, Zen Jen keeps us grounded!

Veronica Colyer - "The Financer"

Finance & Customer Service

This Salix, Iowa native has spent 18 years in finance development and customer service learning all she could from that wild and crazy ride called life.  In the 4 years she has been with College Products she has organized, and lead a team of customer service agents to elite status.  Taking a personal approach and calling our school partners herself is just one of the attributes of this leader.  When not keeping us all here in line regarding our spending, she is at home with her hoard of animals!  With 3 dogs, a cat, a turtle and some fish she has quite a zoo at her house (and that doesn’t even count her husband)!

Mary Freeman - "The Jokester"

Marketing & Customer Relations

A Hawkeye from birth this Coralville, Iowa native has made Sergeant Bluff her home for the last 21 years.  This Briar Cliff University Alum has extensive experience in sales and customer relations that translated over the past two years into an effective and organized Customer Service department here at College Products.  Even though Iowa is land-locked, this woman is a Beach Bum!  She spends all her free time at Lake Okoboji boating and enjoying time with her husband and kids.  She is also well known for her sense of humor and awesome pranks…..don’t sit down around her unless you make sure there isn’t an air horn taped to the bottom of your chair, right Jordan!?

Jordan Black - "The Doc"

Sales

Living far from his hometown of Hickory, North Carolina, we have helped this East Carolina University graduate transition to life in the Midwest.  During his first year as a full time professional with the College Products sales team Jordan visited 32 different states.  Even though he had studied to be a physicians assistant, he has really discovered a fondness for the interactions he gets while working sales.  While he has had the experience of being picked up in his car by a tornado, it wasn’t in Iowa that it happened!  No wonder his mom wasn’t so sure about his coming to work in the Midwest!

Jim Feddersen - "The Organizer"

Warehousing & Logistics

He was born and now he lives.  He is old but we love him anyway.  He does stuff and never complains.  He organizes the warehouse like a boss.  He likes motorcycles and sports cars.  Jim also loves fruity drinks with whip cream and umbrellas!

Brandie Wenham - "The Newbie"

Customer Service

This Sioux City, Iowa native and University of South Dakota Alum is excited to be the newest member of the College Products Team.  She brings over 8 years of banking and customer services experience to the team and is looking forward to becoming a valuable member of the team. While she is the newbie she has caught on very quickly and will be able to help you with any of your needs and answer your questions.  While not at work she enjoys spending time at the lake, golfing, fishing, cruising with the top down on her convertible, riding motorcycle or around sitting around a bon fire in the summer and working on crafts in the winter. Her two dogs, Baxter and Bella, keep her busy and on her toes.  And if there is any time left, shopping is always a great way to spend some of her free time.
