Christine Little (pictured left) will be heading up sales efforts for the North American market as the new Senior Sales Manager for the Corrugating Machinery Division of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America (MHIA) beginning August 3. The 20-year packaging industry veteran will work in close collaboration with Yasushi Kitahara, the company’s Vice President and Director of Sales, and regional sales managers John Bacot, Greg Kukla and David Moulder.
Little joins MHIA from Milwaukee-based Packaging Corporation of America, where she served as a sales professional. Earlier in her career, she worked at Circle Incorporated and Badger Packaging. She earned her MBA in marketing management and BA in marketing from Saint Martin’s University.
Little’s appointment is the company’s most recent move designed to strengthen its equipment sales areas, allowing the company continuously to deliver on its commitment to grow its industry-best customer support in the midst of the challenging COVID-19 epidemic.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Christine to the MHIA team,” said Kitahara. “Her two decades of experience, understanding of our industry’s value chain, and leadership ability will prove to be invaluable as we continue to grow and deepen our customer partnerships across North America.”
