Jon-Don, a leading supplier of commercial supplies, equipment, consumables, and know-how to specialty contractors, has welcomed Eric Royse as the new Chief Executive Officer.
Eric has been a member of the Jon-Don board for two years and is a seasoned distribution executive with over 25 years of experience in several different industries. Most recently, he was CEO at Continental Battery Systems for over five years.

The business increased 10-fold during Eric’s tenure, providing outstanding opportunities for employees, customers, and supply partners.
Eric is a growth and commercial-oriented CEO with an impressive track record. He leads with passion, energy, and constant positive reinforcement. Eric is customer-centric in every sense of the expression and will bring his experience and “find a way” attitude to Jon-Don.
“I am excited and honored to have this opportunity to lead such a great organization,” said Eric Royse. “Jon-Don provides essential products and services and has a market reputation to be proud of. I am confident we will provide an excellent growth platform for our team members, customers, suppliers, and investors.”
