Michael A. Jones, II. is the International Sales Division Leader for Avlon Industries, Inc, a global haircare product manufacturer located in the Greater Chicagoland area.
After receiving his Bachelors from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2001, he joined the organization to serve as the assistant to both, the Executive Vice President and the Director of Global Sales. It is in this capacity where he was able to sharpen his skills and broaden his scope of conducting business in the international arena.
Over the course of the next two decades, Mike was able to climb the corporate ladder within the company while earning his MBA in International Business and accreditation as a Certified Professional Sales Leader from the NASP along the way.
Today, Michael oversees the sales & distribution of exports to Africa, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Mexico, The Caribbean, and The Middle East. Under his leadership, the company has successfully navigated the Covid-19 turndown period, increased sales and expanded its distribution network.
One of his favorite quotes that he considers words-to-live-by in business states: “The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence—it is to act with yesterday’s logic.” —Peter
