Bekum has also named industry veteran Werner Pawlowski as the new global sales manager for the automotive, large packaging, and technical parts industries. With a 20-year history in the industry, Pawlowski had previously worked for Bekum in the sales department before leaving to work for what Bekum calls a “well-known competitor in the automotive branch.”
