Four Join the Bridgman-based ERP Firm 


Bridgman, Michigan, June 28, 2023 – B&L Information Systems, global leader in ERP for metalcasters, is proud to announce new staff members. 

Matt Connolly has joined B&L Information Systems as a Software Engineer in Research & Development. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Miami University before embarking on a successful career in media research, serving as Research Director at a broadcast TV station in his hometown. He continued to hone his business skills as the Head of Sales for an electronics recycling company and helped divert over 6,000,000 pounds of electronics from the landfill. Matt decided to shift gears and pursue a new career in software development, reflecting his love for innovation and technology. Outside of work, Matt is married and has two dogs, George and Bogan. His hobbies and passions include running, reading, woodworking, and gaming. He also has a love for being outside – one of his favorite vacations is traveling to a new national park with his wife to explore the beauty of our country.   

Miles Rekos has joined B&L as an Account Executive. He earned his Bachelor's at Indiana University South Bend in Business and Public relations. Miles has years of experience in sales and management. Miles is from South Bend, Indiana and has spent his life in the Northern part of Indiana as well as the Southwest part of Michigan. During his free time, he likes to workout, read, play pool, and spend time with friends and family. He is also the proud owner of a Golden Retriever named Barkley and a cat named Brody.   

Riley Reichert has joined B&L Information Systems as a Support Representative. He has been together with his wife Sara for 20 years and they have 3 children. He has previous experience as a chef, working for his culinary teacher after high school, as well as experience in data entry at Press Ganey. His hobbies include movies, music, reading, video games, board games, camping, and general fantasy nerdiness, including Dungeons & Dragons. He greatly enjoys spending time with family, and always looks to have get-togethers with friends whenever possible to cook and catch-up. 

Walton Yeboah-Amoako has joined B&L as a Support Representative. Originally born in Kumasi, Ghana (West Africa), he also lived in the Island nation of St. Kitts & Nevis for several years, but Southwest Michigan has been his main stomping ground for decades.  He previously worked at Whirlpool Corporation as a Supervisor in the Care Resolution Department.  He graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Biomedical Sciences, but information technology is where his passion lies, which is what led him to B&L.
