PTi Sales Reorganization
Processing Technologies International (PTi), a world class leader in sheet extrusion, has recently undergone organizational changes in staffing to best adapt to industry needs. Brian Winton, who joined PTi in late September, is working as PTiís new Director of North American Sales and has been instrumental in the changes occurring at PTi. Winton originally started his career managing turnkey projects for sheet extrusion, thermoforming and downstream equipment sales, including plant infrastructure specification and installation. He worked for converters and equipment manufacturers in manager, director and vice president capacities at Modern Machinery, Lyle Industries, and Brown Machine, and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the SPE Thermoforming Division.

Wintonís extensive experience in the plastics industry is well-aligned with PTiís emphasis on high quality sheet extrusion and the importance it is to the thermoforming process. According to Matt Banach, SVP Sales and Marketing, ďBrianís background further strengthens our ability to serve our thermoforming customers, especially those in the heavy gauge industry, and help them maximize the quality, operational and financial benefits of extrusion.Ē

The reorganization and inclusion of a Director of Sales comes during a time when PTi says farewell to one of its own. PTiís Midwest Regional Sales Manager, Richard Busse, retires after dedicating 18 years of service with PTi. Busseís vast industry knowledge, interpersonal skills and professional persistence have been instrumental to PTi, developing and establishing close bonds with extrusion leaders throughout the Midwest.

Accommodating for the change, Winton will oversee the introduction of two new Technical Sales Engineers - Rob Williams and Jeff McConnell. Williams, who has 12 years of sales management experience with PTi, will be responsible for a geographic area, along with strategic customer assignments. Williams has a thorough understanding of the PTi equipment, processes and applications, as well as customer relations. McConnell, who has recently joined PTi, brings with him 20 years of experience in the plastics industry. He has held various roles at Spartech Plastics, with his latest position as Packaging Support Engineer. In addition, McConnell has extensive experience in new product development, technical extrusion, packaging systems and thermoforming.
