Meet John Lee – new Sales Manager for the North America region

John Lee started working at Persson Innovation on October 2021, as the Sales Manager for the North America region. We sat down with John and asked him a few questions to get to know him better. Read the intricacies of our interview below.

Who is John Lee?
My name is John, and I was recently appointed as the new Sales Manager North America for Persson Innovation. My background is in the packaging industry, specifically in rigid plastic packaging.

I am from Montgomery, AL and studied Business Management at the University of Auburn.

Joining Persson Innovation was a natural transition. With my previous work experience in sales, and the company’s values for sustainability and recyclability, this was the quintessential opportunity for me. I place high values on family-like companies with horizontal management teams and Persson Innovation was the perfect match.

What will your responsibilities be as Sales Manager?
My role as the Sales Manager will be to maintain and grow our existing North American customer base, helping them achieve their goals and grow with Persson. My responsibility also includes targeting new key accounts and to develop and drive new business sales.

The overarching goal is to increase the presence and awareness of Persson Innovation in North America and help brand owners, converters, and consumers add value to their packaging.

Why did you want to join Persson Innovation?
I started working at Persson Innovation because of the congruity in personal and company values. We take sustainability and recyclability very seriously. The purpose and vision is clear- to promote healthier and greener planet.

For example, Persson Innovation grows a honeybee nest next to our company sign in Kumla, Sweden. Bees are essential for the natural ecosystem to sustain and we are contributing to keeping out planet green and sustainable.

Another example is allocating a share of net sales to plant trees to eventually harvest for paper and handle production. Consumers then recycles our handles to reintroduce back into the product cycle.

What are you looking forward to right now?
I look forward to many things, like increasing our presence and awareness in the packaging industry in the North America region. I also look forward to expanding our product line and putting more handles on packaging to make life easier for the end-consumers.

It’s all about adding value to the packaging from the manufacturing side. And of course, I look forward to meeting new clients, starting new projects and bringing on new businesses.

I look forward to embarking on this journey and creating new solutions for our packaging for a greener planet. Today is just the start on that journey of making more paper handles.
