As Marketing Director of a company with over 850 team members and $300 million in revenue, he is responsible for the overall vision and execution of Stine’s business and marketing strategy, which includes online marketing and e-commerce.
A VOICE FOR SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA
Immediately after the catastrophic storms of Hurricanes Laura and Delta, Jeremy turned to social media to help lead the charge to organize food distribution locations for area workers and citizens by providing thousands of daily meals for weeks at a time.
As President of the Alliance for Positive Growth (APG), Jeremy used his role to amplify the voice of many Southwest Louisiana business leaders and citizens. Under Jeremy’s leadership, the nonprofit shed light on the lack of immediate relief to the Southwest region following both Hurricanes Laura and Delta. Their efforts rallied the community to urge the President and Congress to pass disaster relief funding.
EXPERIENCE & VALUES
Jeremy began his career after graduating with a degree in Political Science and French from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He worked his way through college as a legislative aide to the Jefferson Parish Legislative Delegation in the Louisiana State Legislature. After graduation, he worked as a legislative aide in the United States Senate, where he helped Southwest Louisiana recover from Hurricane Rita.
Before rejoining the family business, Jeremy was an Associate Banker with Stephens, Inc. of Little Rock, Arkansas where he focused on developing customized, cost-efficient financing strategies for municipalities throughout Louisiana, including Calcasieu Parish School Board, Calcasieu Parish Police Jury, Lake Charles Ward 3 Recreation, Cities of Sulphur, Westlake, and Lake Charles, in the primary areas of long-term debt management, capital improvement planning, and refinancing solutions.
