Coldwater Sales Management

Coldwater is a global producer of consumables that are critical to the paper making process. We continue to grow our business and look for opportunities to expand our product portfolio with products that deliver optimization to our customer’s operations that ultimately result in cost savings. Also, as we continue to grow, we look for opportunities to expand our footprint with product expertise and sales leadership. With that I am pleased to announce the following changes in our International Business Sales Management:

Effective March 1, 2015 Karl Whelan will assume the responsibility as Sales Director Asia Region. In this role, Karl will be relocating to Thailand and will be responsible for managing all Coldwater sales activities in the following countries: Australia, Bangladesh, Belarus, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Turkey. Karl has most recently managed our European business and we look forward to his continued leadership to lead and grow our business in these very important regions.

Also effective March 1, 2015 Ales Artaza will assume the responsibility of Sales Director Europe Region. In this role, Ales will be responsible for managing the all Coldwater sales activities in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, and the UK. Ales spent most of his career in the pulp and paper industry, much of which was with the Beloit Corporation. Ales most recently served as Director Corporate Accounts in Europe for Coldwater and we look forward to his leadership to grow our sales in Europe.

Ales and Karl will continue to work very closely together and be involved in supporting each other in their respective regions. Please join me in congratulating and supporting both of these gentlemen in their new and very important roles in the company. Karl and Ales will both report directly to me in their positions.
