Garrett Guinn, a decorated U.S. Army veteran and executive recruiter who switched careers and has spent the last 15 years in business development, sales and marketing, is SOMIC Packaging’s new western regional sales manager. Based in Spokane, Washington, he reports to CEO Peter Fox.

Guinn’s hiring is the next step in SOMIC’s business plan to expand and gives the company true coast-to-coast representation. He will be responsible for working with companies in 11 western states – plus Alaska and Hawaii – needing automated, end-of-line packaging systems. 

Guinn has spent the last eight years in the packaging industry, most recently as a regional sales manager at Arrowhead Systems based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He anticipates his prior experience with new equipment prospecting, material handling and end-of-line packaging solutions will help him reach ambitious goals in 2022.
