Shurtape Technologies, LLC recently announced the expansion of its Industrial Packaging-North American team with the addition of four territory sales managers who are reportedly strategically placed to cover key growth markets, including western New York and Pennsylvania, Ohio, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, and Indiana. “As we continue to grow in the Industrial Packaging channel, it’s critical that we have high-quality product solutions, but even more crucial to have the right experience and knowledge at the helm to help align those product solutions with the needs of our distribution partners and end-users,” said Rob DeVries, senior vice president of Sales.

The newly appointed territory sales managers include:

  • Brad Davis has more than five years of packaging expertise gained through his latest stint at Sealed Air Corp., where he built specific experience in the e-commerce, 3PL, and manufacturing industries. Brad will place primary focus on end-of-line carton sealing in the southern Ohio, southern Indiana, and Kentucky areas.
  • After graduating with a degree in packaging science from Clemson University, with an emphasis on materials, marketing, and business, and then spending the first three years of his career at Pratt Industries, Brock Byers brings a wealth of packaging expertise to his territory, which encompasses Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi.
  • With over 30 years of experience in the packaging industry, Randy Krabbenhoft joins the Shurtape team from SouthernCarlson out of Minnesota. His focus will be on strengthening partnerships in the Texas and Louisiana regions.
  • Kelley Wickert will lend over 30 years of packaging industry experience, including nine years most recently spent with Sealed Air Corp., to selling to the northeast Ohio, western Pennsylvania, western New York, and West Virginia regions.

“We are excited to have these new territory sales managers join our elite national sales force of professionals focused on building winning partnerships with distribution and improving the performance of end-users’ packaging lines,” said Hilda Harding, director of Sales–Packaging.
