“Patience is truly a virtue,” says Ellen Friedman, Regional Director of Sales, Events, and Marketing for M.D. Science Lab. “I’ve been working with IML’s Sponsorship Coordinator, Jon Krongaard, for many, many years and we were finally able to make this partnership happen. I could not be more thrilled for Swiss Navy to be the exclusive lubricant company as part of this wonderful organization and their event.”
