Paul Lewis has joined Daetwyler as its regional sales manager for the US West Coast in response to continuous growth.
Lewis will be responsible for maintaining current customers and growing the West Coast market in California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico.
Lewis joins Daetwyler with 12 years of experience in the printing industry with Conversource, including sales and customer service management. Conversource is a supplier of consumable supplies and accessory equipment for flexo pressrooms.
Lewis represented Daetwyler while with Conversource, and worked directly with 3M, Tesa, Rotometrics, Mark Andy, Nilpeter and others on projects during his 12-year tenure.
He said: ‘I look forward to this new opportunity with Daetwyler and have always enjoyed working directly with the customer on better improving their quality and performance. Being right there with the customer and helping them take a blank substrate and turn it into a finished product is still as exciting to me today as it was when I saw my first job.’
Marty Cansler, Daetwyler’s national sales manager in the US, said: ‘Paul's industry experience is a great fit for Daetwyler's West Coast customer base.
‘He adds a new dimension to our team and adds a higher level of service to our customers by living and focusing strictly on the west coast.’
