MULTIVAC, Inc. hired Michael Johnson as a regional sales manager in the Western Region, with a primary focus on the food industry in Alaska, Washington, and Oregon. MULTIVAC is excited to have Johnson and his 20 years of food industry experience on the team.
For the past five years, Johnson has worked as a product sales manager with Air Clean Technologies/Air Right Products and Services. Prior to holding that position, Johnson worked for Mettler Toledo, Inc. as the Northwest project manager/account manager for four years.
As a regional sales manager for the food industry, Johnson will work closely with customers to identify potential sales opportunities while cultivating relationships with existing MULTIVAC customers.
