As of February 28, 2023, Mark will be beginning his new role for the organization as Regional Sales Leader over Rusken West leading our Harrisburg, AR and Olive Branch, MS sales teams.

Since beginning his role at D & D Packaging as VP of Sales in 2016, Mark prides himself on helping his team to grow and reach potential they didn’t think was possible. As a seasoned corrugated sales professional with 13 years of experience, Mark is looking forward to utilizing the combined strengths of each facility to continue to grow our customer base and create new opportunities.
“My goals for the combined facilities would be to serve the customer base better as a team rather than individual entities. I hope to define new markets and utilize our highly skilled employees to capture new business opportunities. I seek to create an environment of customer focused thinking that compliments the creativity and efforts of our team while overdelivering on the expectations of the client,” says Mark regarding the new goals he has set for his new position.
When Mark isn’t busy with sales, you can find him jamming with his family of musicians!
