Our Team / Colin Jesien
VP & General Manager
Colin’s career path led him straight down the line to the packaging industry, beginning with a degree in Packaging Science from the Rochester Institute of Technology. That early interest led to an expertise in supply chain improvement.
His role at Arnold Packaging is focused on continuing to build world-class teams in the company’s manufacturing, distribution and services areas. This will come through formal training and certifications, plus an encouraging environment where employees can express ideas and initiate process improvement. Colin also ensures that the company has the workforce capacity and physical space to serve customers with quicker quote times, faster turnaround and an extensive inventory.
“I am a customer-first person, whether internal or external,” Colin says. “One of my most influential mentors would always say, ‘It’s all about the people.’ Every year this phrase becomes more relevant to me. The value of our internal team is what will drive continuous improvement within our company, the production of quality products, and excellence in our customer relationships.”
In addition to his degree in Packaging Science from the Rochester Institute of Technology, Colin holds a Master in Business Administration degree from Clarkson University.
