Ahlstrom-Munksjö Milestones with Kent Williamson
Kent Williamson has worked within the Ahlstrom-Munksjö family for more than 30 years (and no, that is not a typo) – three, zero! From the comings and goings of five U.S presidents to the toppling of the Berlin Wall – there have certainly been some major global events during this time frame. However, what sticks out most for Kent are the events you won’t find in a national newspaper: how he proposed to his wife; the birth of his two sons; the cultures and friendships he was exposed to through his work over the years. Here, Kent shares his Ahlstrom-Munksjö milestones.
