Miami – 1st of October 2017
Koen Pack BV of Amstelveen, the Netherlands, has promoted Pieter L. Sluiter to General Manager of Koen Pack USA in Miami, FL. In his previous role as Sales Manager since 2016, Sluiter has been instrumental in leading the company’s efforts to dramatically expand market share in new and existing markets worldwide. As General Manager, Sluiter will direct all aspects of the US affiliate, reporting to company CEO Koen Broekhuizen.
Sluiter’s background includes executive positions both in and out of the horticulture industry. Son of a leading Dutch conifer grower, he grew up learning every aspect of the industry first hand. Seeking to branch out, Sluiter found success managing sales and exports of consumer products companies Marcus Evans and Delinuts BV. Developing private label programs with major retailers provided Sluiter with key insights about adding value through packaging.
“Koen Pack’s dedication to help our clients grow their business by incorporating innovative packaging concepts and products is unrivaled. Pieter’s impressive track record, broad international experience, and deep knowledge base make him the ideal candidate for presiding over the continued strong growth of Koen Pack USA” says Broekhuizen.
