Sam has been an in­te­gral part of the sewn prod­uct in­dus­try since the last 47 years.

He also played a key role in the com­pany’s in­ter­na­tional busi­ness ex­pan­sion oper­a­tions in Europe, Asia and Latin Amer­ica.

“It has been a priv­i­lege to work along­side Sam and learn about the in­dus­try. Sam’s knowl­edge of the in­dus­try, cus­tomers and mar­kets is un­par­al­leled and we thank him for his years of ser­vice,” said Peter Mor­ris­sey, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent Global Sales at Ger­ber.
