The Price Container Team
Senior Vice President at TricorBraun
I am the founder of Price Container and Packaging. I started in the industry as a kid helping my dad with buckets and and repacking bottles. In the summer I would go with him on deliveries and would get to see his customers who always seemed happy to see him. I realized this was a fun business to be in because the transactions seemed to make both my dad and his customers happy. I took from those experiences and made it into my own passion; to make and keep customers happy and tackling challenging projects. I love the art of negotiating or making deals where both parties win.
When I think of our values at Price Container everything comes down to 3 things for me: high grade materials, price, and service. We try to provide the highest grade materials at the most economic price with the best service.
I love my family, though it can be difficult at times being the only man in a house of 5 girls, I wouldn’t have it any other way. They make me stronger and have definitely taught me humility. I like to challenge myself personally. My most proud accomplishments were completing a 70.3 Ironman and the R2R2R2 run in the Grand Canyon. We start out early in the morning and run from the South rim to the North rim and back to the South rim, all in one day. I do challenges like this to prove to myself that I am capable of more than I can imagine.
Seeing where this company started, I’m in awe of the sheer amount of volume and staffing we currently have and I know it is only the tip of the iceberg. There are so many opportunities out there to serve people.
Director of Sales and Marketing
I originally started my career in Market Research and spent 17 years as a co-owner of Information Alliance. We had 5 locations across the state and as many as 500 employees at a time. As Vice President and Director of Operations, I managed the day to day of the business and made major decisions in all aspects of the company. This included managing projects for brands like HP, Turbo Tax, Arbitron, Gallup, and nationwide political studies. After 25 years in the industry I made the move to Price Container. My strengths in client relations, project management, team building, and a background in photography have all made this job at Price Container a great fit for me.
As the Director of Sales and Marketing, I absolutely love working with our sales, client services, and warehouse teams, as well as our customers, and vendors. My goal is to make sure all the pieces fit into place for a thriving business where our customers feel valued. We pride ourselves in thorough training, leading marketing strategies and brand development.
Outside of work, I enjoy photography and running. Photography is my favorite because I like finding different ways to view the world. Running is a funny story. I don’t really like running, but I took it up 10 years ago just to see if I could do it. I can! I’m as fast as a caboose, always towards the end of the group, slow and steady. Even though I’m not the fastest, I’m also there cheering on those around me with a smile on my face. Come join me some time and we will have some good laughs along the way.
I was born and raised in Willard, Utah and grew up on a dairy farm where I first gained experience working as a laborer and a farmer. Before joining Price Container, I worked for 11 years in materials and purchasing for Sorenson. I joined the Price Container team in 2012. My current position is Warehouse Director.
I have a lot of fun at work, thanks to my coworkers, I feel that everyone’s personalities mix really well. I pride myself in building strong relationships with my team in the warehouse and keeping their spirits high throughout the work day. I work so I can provide for my family which I enjoy more than anything else. My wife, two sons, and two grandkids like spending time in our garden, greenhouse, and cooking outdoors. We recently purchased a freeze dryer and have found a lot of creative ways to use it. My co-workers especially like the freeze dried taffy and skittles.
Packaging Consultant - Colorado, Provo to St. George
I have been in sales since 2004 working for Wells Fargo, Kraft and Heinz and then found my way to Price Container in 2015. My territory covers southern Utah down to St. George and Colorado. It is my goal and responsibility to service and maintain 100% satisfaction with my customers and it’s something I take very seriously. My favorite part about working at Price Container is all the people I get to interact with. Everyone is very welcoming and fun to work with. A great aspect of sales is the ability to meet so many new people and build relationships. Every day is a unique day in sales, there is never a dull day.
I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. I met my wife in England and she has been by my side as we’ve lived in several different states. Whenever we get a chance we try to travel back to England with our 3 wonderful kids. I love outdoor activities such as attending concerts, gardening, and camping especially in Yellowstone because there’s no other place like it.
I have been in sales for more than 8 years and I am currently servicing the states of Wyoming, North and South Dakota, and Montana. I previously worked as a process engineer for the largest renewable energy company in the world where I was over quality control and safety for all installations across the nation. What I enjoy most about sales is talking to and meeting new people, building relationships, and problem solving to meet customer needs.
The great thing about working at Price Container is the people I work with. Everyone here is very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. It’s very much a team based environment. Outside of work, my wife and I travel and hang out with friends and family. I love all powers sports from dirt bikes, snowmobiles, side by sides, 4 wheelers and boats. If it’s got a motor I’m all about it. My go to, outdoor spot, is at my family’s cabin in Challis Idaho.
My career in sales began at Redwood Plastics as an inside representative selling industrial plastics mainly with in the pulp and paper industry. I then moved on to work for Westrock in their corrugated container division as a customer service representative in Longview Washington before coming to work for Price Container in September of 2021. My transition out of manufacturing into distribution has been an amazing learning experience, the new knowledge I get to absorb each day at Price Container gives me a better perspective from a sales standpoint. I’m thankful to the amazing leadership and team members at Price Container who are committed to lifting up one another and offering our customers unprecedented service. I look forward to my long career with Price Container by continuing to expand our customer base in the beautiful state of Washington.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time outdoors in the gorgeous pacific northwest where I reside with my family. We love to camp, hike and explore the history of our area. I have lived and worked in southwest Washington my entire life and I’m still learning exciting things about my community everyday.
I’ve been working in sales for 12 years and have enjoyed every second helping and supporting my customers. My territory covers the beautiful Pacific Northwest (Oregon). My number one goal is to “be the best employee that is not on your payroll” as well as maintain 100% satisfaction with our products and services.
As your Price Container representative, I am excited to offer some fantastic products with fair prices that are on-budget and get to you on time. With over 2,800 products and a rapidly growing supply chain network I am confident that we have the solutions for you.
Outside of work I have the greatest honor and title of being a “girl dad” and Husband. My wife Alesha and I have been married for 9 years and have three beautiful girls, Evelyn (8), Mia (6) and Summer (2). We love to ski in the winters and explore all of Oregon’s lakes, rivers, and beaches in the summer. I enjoy playing city league basketball and participating in fantasy football (if you need any fantasy football tips just let me know. I got you!). We also have a sweet little three-year-old shorkie puppy named Lucy. Lucy certainly acts as if she is the fourth child in our family and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
I come from a diverse 15 year sales and management background. I spent a number of years of my career in the state of California, where I was taught, worked alongside, and was educated by the best of the best. The experiences I gained while being employed away from my “roots” helped to shape and conform me into the man I am today. I wouldn’t trade it for the world, but I’m overjoyed to be back in the state of Utah serving the greater Salt Lake area. I strive to make those I sell to, my friends and confidants. I love sales for several reasons – but the biggest draw are the people I get the opportunity of meeting.
I have a wife and 3 children whom I love dearly. They are the reason I want to work hard and continue to grow on a daily basis. We love to do almost anything together; mountain bike, hike, ski, wake surf, play games, camp, and as of late – play pickleball. But almost nothing beats being at home and spending time around the kitchen table eating and visiting.
