Bendheim Welcomes Jayson

October 2015

With less than 3 percent of all family businesses spanning into their fourth generation (according to the Family Business Institute), Bendheim welcomes Benjamin Jayson, the first fourth generation family member, to the company to carry on the family’s glass tradition.

Jayson’s glass education began at an early age, learning about colored glass from his mother, an acclaimed stained glass artist. During his teen years, he spent his summers at Bendheim, working in the stained glass division. He learned the business from the ground up, selecting orders and racking and packing cases, among the hundreds of varieties of patterned and colored glass.

Today, Jayson begins his next phase of glass education with the unique opportunity to work in Bendheim’s manufacturing facility. Following training in the plant, he will work in each of Bendheim’s subsidiaries and departments, learning all the facets of the business. Upon completion of this all-encompassing program, he will move into management.
