Regalo Baby

From the President of Regalo Baby, Mark Flannery:

We are a privately held Christian owned mid-size consumer products company. When I say Christian I mean that we stand on one fact, that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of  God. There is only ONE way for men to be saved and that is thru the risen Savior. There is nothing we can do to add to that, and there is nothing  can diminish our position in Christ once we have placed our faith in him and been born again. We feel that the Great Commission applies to everyone who has put their faith in Jesus. To that end, one of our primary functions as members in the body of Christ is to advance the Gospel around the world thru the various resources of our company.

 

The mission statement for our company as stated in our official Handbook is:

 

Honoring God in our business by demonstrating excellence in serving our employees, business partners and community. To uphold a culture of integrity, innovation, hard work and sustainability.

 

We are based in the Minneapolis area.  The position is based here.  Expense travel for interviews outside a 200 mile radius of the Twin cities would be provided by the company.  We offer a very competitive compensation and benefits package.  The balance of information for interested candidates is on the attachment included on this email.  All resumes and inquiries should be directed to myself, Mark Flannery  <markf@regalo-baby.com>.
