HUMBOLDT, TN, February 9, 2021 — Jones Family of Companies continues to make moves and strengthen its position as a leader in non-wovens manufacturing that is always growing and improving its operations. The most recent step in this mission is hiring Mark Only as Senior Human Resources Manager in the Humboldt, Tennessee business office.
Only is a Jackson, TN native who has proven himself in leadership over the past two decades in involvement with his community and in his career. He graduated from Lambuth University in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management with a minor in Economics, then went on to earn his Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification in 2007 and become a Society for Human Resources Management Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) in 2015.
Only commented on his future as Senior Human Resources Manager. “I have a true passion for human resources and the positive impact that HR can have on a business. I am excited to continue my work at an organization like Jones Family of Companies that truly understands the importance of investing in its people, and I look forward to helping to grow the company’s already exceptional team.”
Before coming to Jones, Only worked in Human Resources since 2007, serving as Manager, Director, and Vice President of HR at five separate companies. Most recently, he was Human Resources Manager at Park Ohio in Lobelville, TN, overseeing all aspects of HR from hiring to discipline to safety. In his time at Park Ohio, Only also took the lead on a number of partnerships and projects, including writing and distributing an updated company handbook and working with the Lobelville Sheriff’s Department to develop a work release program.
Only’s ability to balance maintaining the usual tasks of managing an HR department while implementing new initiatives and programs will further elevate and strengthen Jones’ Humboldt business office and production facility.
“Mark has decades of HR experience under his belt, and has been at the head of several impressive projects and programs in his previous positions,” commented Anthony Lado, Director of Human Resources and HR Team Leader. “I am anticipating similarly impressive work from him here at Jones.”
