Chris Art Promoted to Vice President of Sales for SIMONA AMERICA Industries
Archbald,PA. SIMONA AMERICA Industries is pleased to announce that Chris Art has been promoted to Vice President of Sales for SIMONA AMERICA Industries.
Chris has worked in the plastics industry since 2012, leading new product and business development programs by partnering with plastic distributors and other customers to strategically grow their business, drive market opportunity, and raise product awareness. Chris’s plastic experience started at a very young age. An avid skateboarder, Chris and a close friend would use scrap HDPE sheets to make skateboard ramps. Chris also worked at his friend’s family business during his teenage summers fabricating HDPE bathroom partitions and fabricating sample cutting boards.
Chris started with SIMONA in 2016 as sales manager for the industrial business segment. Since then, Chris assumed responsibility for the semicon and chemical processing industry business segments. Today, Chris also manages the SIMONA AMERICA Industries customer service team and engineering applications initiatives.
“To entrust me with this key role is very humbling. I am beyond excited to lead our sales strategies, while increasing our brand awareness and market penetration. Support, trust, empathy and autonomy, are the building blocks for success,” said Chris. “We’ve built the best teams in the industry, and without these teams, we wouldn’t be as successful. I look forward to continually growing with SIMONA and I am grateful for the visionary leadership team for this opportunity.”
"Chris brings a blend of strong product expertise, thorough market knowledge and dedicated sales drive to SIMONA AMERICA Industries. He knows what it takes to deliver customer success and provides excellent support to our customer service and outside sales teams," said Adam Mellen, CSO of SIMONA AMERICA Group. "We congratulate Chris on his deserving new role."
