Chief Operating Officer
American Pouch Converters
Jim is the Co-Founder and COO of American Pouch Converters. Except for a 14-year career in the United States Marines deployed in many countries, Jim was born and bred (like us) in the packaging industry. His focus and vision for American Pouch Converters was to build a solutions-centric pouch converter, as well as be an educator in the packaging industry. Amongst other things, Jim is credited with the creation of the Intelli-Pouch ™, which is an intelligent consumer engagement, track and trace, anti-counterfeit and brand authentication pouch option. American Pouch Converters is at the forefront of Child Resistant pouching and was one of the first US companies to manufacturer a child resistant pouch for cannabis. You’ll find Jim to be passionate, down to earth, innovative in his approach and moving at a high-octane pace. He studied at UW-Milwaukee with a discipline in Manufacturing and Process Engineering. Jim is passionate about everything in his life: family, the out of doors, the veterans he mentors, and our industry.
