Jensie Smith joins Sev-Rend as new relationship manager

sevrendsevrendSev-Rend has hired Jensie Smith as its new relationship manager. The company said this lines up with Sev-Rend’s goals to further service its clients in the produce industry with high-performance packaging. This move allows Sev-Rend to expand it footprint even further in the ever-growing fresh produce industry.

“Jensie brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the Sev-Rend team that will allow us to grow in some key areas within the fresh produce packaging world,” said Rob Williams, chief executive officer of Sev-Rend. “Her expertise on several of our core products is unparalleled within the industry. This along with her integration with key players in the industry will help strengthen Sev-Rend’s position as a top tier supplier of high-performance packaging.”

Smith brings over 20 years of experience to the Sev-Rend team ranging from sales to account management to customer service. She most recently held the title of account manager at Giro Pack USA Inc. She has also the position of sales coordinator at Cintas where she played a part in sales development and support.

“I am very excited to join the Sev-Rend team to offer world class products and service to the produce industry,” said Smith. “Sev-Rend’s core products are items I have deep knowledge of, and the transition was not only seamless, but also made sense. My previous experience allowed me to develop solid relationships with many of the decision makers in the fresh produce world.”

Smith’s addition to the Sev-Rend team is in line with the Sev-Rend growth strategy. Her vast knowledge will allow her duties to include directing relationships with key accounts and retailers alike, both in the U.S and Canada. This gain in knowledge and experience is in line with several of the other items Sev-Rend has made over the past several years to support the needs of the packaging market. The addition of a new wide web press and pouch converting equipment are just some of the additional examples of Sev-Rend’s commitment to growth to support this ever expanding market.
