Excel Packaging is proud to announce that we have recently added another member to the team of packaging experts! We are happy to welcome Chelsea Behnke to the team. Read on to learn more about her.
Chelsea comes to us with extensive experience in business development. She went into PepsiCo-Frito Lay as an intern during her college years. Upon graduation, she was hired full-time as Sales District Manager. Over the duration of that time, she held the District Manager, Customer Development Manager, and Customer Service Manager roles. Now she’s Business Development Manager for Excel Packaging!
During her time at Frito-Lay, she was awarded on multiple occasions. She’s been recognized as a “Trailblazer,” leading the way in developing a new and efficient system for creating tasks for her frontline team in the St. Louis region. She also received recognition for having being in top 10 for highest sales in her region, a total of five times in her career at Frito-Lay, including for the year of 2017! We’re excited to partner with her and leverage her great experiences to grow and develop our business, as well as continue to better serve our customers.
Chelsea attended Iowa State University and graduated from the college of Business in 2015. While at Iowa State, she was a member of the Alpha Kappa Psi Business Fraternity. She took an active leadership role there as the Fundraising Chair, planning numerous volunteering opportunities within the community. She also was part of the Women’s Ice Hockey Club, in which she would volunteer with other sporting organizations to support other teams in the athletic community on campus.
In her spare time, Chelsea continues to enjoy playing ice hockey and other active pursuits. She also enjoys spending time at the beach and spending time with family and friends. She has two great dogs—a German Shepherd, Dax, and a Beagle mix, Rita.
We are so glad to be welcoming Chelsea to Excel Packaging! We’re sure she will be a great addition to our vibrant team of experts.
