In response to tremendous growth in the US market, STM Bags has expanded its sales management team with addition of John Schlegel. Schlegel comes to STM with over 25 years of sales experience. His most recent endeavor was with the El Dorado Trading Group, a distributor of electronics and computer supplies. 

“John's technical expertise combined with deep market insight will make him a great asset for both STM and our customers,” said Wayne Faulkner, STM's North American Managing Director. “We are very fortunate to have John join us and believe strongly that our customers will feel the same.”

As US sales manager, Schlegel will spearhead the day-to-day management of STM's multi-channel distribution network, including outdoor, travel, education and electronic retailers.
