Following 15 years of successful leadership at Schaumburg, Illinois based Young Shin USA, Kyong Taik Lee, President of Young Shin Industries of South Korea, has announced the retirement of Phillip Mack, Vice President. Mack will maintain an advisory position with Young Shin USA until December 31, facilitating the transition of the firm to new leadership.
Lee has appointed Young Shin USA’s Vice President of Technical Services, Ed Cowgill, as Vice President to succeed Mack in the overall operation of the firm.
“We have an enormous sales momentum and a highly experienced service team that will form the foundation of our future growth and expansion,” Cowgill said. “With the expanded role of industry-veteran, Mark Caffary as Vice President of Sales, we will be actively pursuing new and existing sales opportunities for the corrugated and folding carton markets.”
“Throughout Phil’s tenure with Young Shin USA, he has made significant contributions in directing our continued success and expansion into the U.S. and North American markets,” said Lee.
“Since the establishment of the Young Shin organization in North America in 2008, he developed a trademark of excellence in sales opportunities and operational expertise. He was integral in our firm’s long-term strategy, operations, and visibility within the corrugated and folding carton industries.”
“I have been fortunate to have established and led Young Shin USA’s growth and expansion in the market place throughout the past 15 years. We have leveraged our sales opportunities and introduced a comprehensive, premier flatbed die cutter line to the market. Our representation of German-based Stock Maschinenbau products also augmented Young Shin’s superior die cutter products with Stock’s globally recognized excellence,” Mack said.
The transition will include the continuance of the firm’s North American headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois.
