Meet Our Team
Starting with Shred Alaska in 2009, Jon Forbes has brought a background of military and education to the operations of Shred Alaska. Jon has held many hats at Shred Alaska after purchasing Shred Alaska with his son Robyn Forbes. Jon says working within a close knit family business has been a great experience. It allows him the opportunity to work hands on in every aspect of the copmany, from operations, to management and even hands on shredding services.
In 1986 Jon came to Alaska by way of the AirForce and served our great country honorably before retiring after 20 years of service. He then went on to pursue his career in elementary education. Jon worked his way through the ranks to obtain his elementary principleship, and worked for ASD for 14 years.
Customer Service and Attention to Detail are the two cornerstones of what Shred Alaska has built their business upon. Jon has worked to create an environment within the office of not only support to the drivers, but also the creation of our extended Shred Alaska family. They gather at the beginning of their day to plan for the day and again in the evening after their routes are completed. This allows for everyone to reconnect and to stay connected and Jon is the glue that holds that together.
