James Wreath has been appointed Vice President Sales North America at Körber Business Area Tissue and will report directly to the President North America, Pete Augustine. Wreath joined the Körber Business Area Tissue at the beginning of 2020 as Vice President of Business Innovation working on digital integration and progressive business models, and will now also be responsible of sales.
“Our customer community has been, and will be, experiencing some very unique challenges as they move forward. As a sales team, we will take an intentional, business-minded approach when developing relationships. Becoming our customers’ trusted advisor is our over-arching goal. We believe having intentional business discussions, not buying discussions, will get us there,” commented Wreath.
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point with a Computer Information Systems and Business Administration degree, Wreath began a transition into technical consultative sales. With over 20 years of sales and sales management experience in both established, and start-up companies, he brings a progressive and intentional approach to creating great experiences for our customers as well as our Körber teammates.
