Scott Welker - Your Northeast Sales-Partner
I view my role as being a problem-solver and resource for our customers, not just a machine seller. I aspire to be a trusted guide for them. It’s not about pushing a product. It’s about being there for our clients, becoming their go-to when they think packaging – Scott Welker
At SOMIC, we are all about the trajectory of growth and change. There’s no better testament than our impressive showing of the new SOMIC 434. That momentum continues to reverberate through all our operations, the latest being the appointment of our new Northeast Regional Sales Manager, Scott Welker. A conversation with Scott instantly showcases his innate knack for service-focused problemsolving. His enthusiasm for working with a team that not only faces challenges head-on but also thrives on innovating unique solutions is tangible. He says, “Even with standard products, SOMIC offers a fresh perspective.”
With a deep-rooted network in the Northeast and an innate understanding of its pulse, Scott is eager to spotlight SOMIC’s distinctive touch in the packaging world. His focus extends beyond merely promoting our products; he aims to illuminate how our synergistic solutions can be transformative for businesses. Scott has an infectious zest for finding creative solutions for his clients. It’s no wonder he felt a kinship with SOMIC. As he explains, “What drew me to SOMIC? The way we think! Every product and even the standards are seen through a lens of innovation here.”
Scott’s academic roots in engineering give him a unique perspective. While he began his career crafting solutions, his journey led him to sales engineering, blending his love for tech with a flair for human connection. That deep-seated passion for engaging with people has been the compass guiding his professional voyage.
In his new role at SOMIC, he plans to strengthen SOMIC’s foothold in the Northeast region with an emphasis on education.
“I view my role as being a problem-solver and resource for our customers, not just a machine seller. I aspire to be a trusted guide for them. It’s not about pushing a product. It’s about being there for our clients, becoming their go-to when they think packaging,” he emphasizes. The goal of building the customer’s knowledge of SOMIC’s technology and automation solutions is to lead to more proactive partnerships where businesses know SOMIC and can incorporate this knowledge in their packaging design process even before they need a packaging solution. Scott also plans to cultivate broader awareness of SOMIC’s versatile shelf ready packaging approach, offering various formats tailored to specific needs.
Away from the corporate corridors, Scott, a proud Pennsylvanian, dedicates his time to his family and serves his community as a firefighter. His spirit of dedication and service doesn’t stop at work!
