Georgia-Pacific LLC has appointed Kim Price vice president of market sales for its consumer products group. In her new position, she will oversee the “away-from-home” market sales teams for GP PRO. Price has been with Georgia-Pacific for more than 15 years, beginning her career with the company in 2005. She most recently served as vice president of sales force effectiveness for the company’s consumer product group.
“Our No. 1 priority for 2021 is to help customers enable a safe return from the coronavirus pandemic and we believe our categories play an essential role in that,” said Ryan Elwart, chief customer officer for Georgia-Pacific’s consumer products group. “Kim has led key customer and channel teams for Georgia-Pacific, and most recently built and led our sales force effectiveness capability, which delivers world class training, applied technology and sales enablement to Georgia-Pacific and to our distributor partners. Kim is uniquely positioned to lead our market sales teams as we transform, along with our customers, to serve a post-COVID marketplace.”
In addition, Erin Beckman was promoted in 2020 to vice president – away-from-home national sales. In her role, Beckman has helped serve the needs of Georgia-Pacific’s restaurant, retailer, arena, and commercial and industrial facilities end users through the pandemic, while collaborating closely with national distributor customers serving those industries. Beckman has led customer and channel teams for Georgia-Pacific since 2015 and was promoted to her current position in April of last year.
“Together, Erin and Kim will lead the integrated team across Georgia-Pacific as we partner with businesses to help them get ‘Hygiene Ready,’ bolster consumer and employee confidence, and safely re-open their facilities during 2021,” said Elwart.
