Steve Whillis, Business Unit Manager – EMEA, Kiwiplan, has confirmed the appointment of Gustavo Torres as a new Account Executive for the EMEA team.

He started his career in 1998 with MarquipWardUnited, before moving to work with Mondi and then Grupo Gondi. For the last five years, he worked for another software company within the industry. He speaks English, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish and joined Kiwiplan at the beginning of the year.
“Kiwiplan is a company I have held in high respect as a partner, customer and even as a competitor, during my career,” said Gustavo Torres. “I am grateful to have been called to join the Kiwiplan family and I look forward to growing the reach of the entire suite of products to box plants around the region.”
“We are delighted to have Gustavo in the team,” added Whillis. “He brings a broad depth of specific industry knowledge and insight, having worked in box plants as well as selling equipment and software for more than 20 years. He is a great addition to the team and will be on hand at the upcoming FEFCO Technical Congress being held in Copenhagen in October.”
