His achievements in marketing, business development and sales place him among the most valuable members of our senior management team. We look forward to the improvements and efficiencies he will bring to our overall sales efforts in this expanded role.”
Lee added: “I am pleased with the opportunity to play an expanded role in the success of Champion Thread. In addition to helping clients achieve business improvements, I enjoy partnering with customers to identify new product and market opportunities. Because we are a nimble and talented team, CTC allows me to leverage our deep product, manufacturing and supply chain expertise to bring to market custom engineered solutions for specific client or market needs. I am excited about the future of CTC and our industry.”
