St. Louis, Missouri – July 13, 2017 – To support current and future growth, TricorBraun has announced two key management moves, according to Keith Strope, President and CEO, of TricorBraun.


Brett Binkowski, a 20-year veteran of TricorBraun, has been named to the newly created role of Chief Commercial Officer, said Strope. Binkowski has served the company as a Packaging Consultant, Branch Manager, Regional Vice President, Head of Supply Chain and most recently Executive Vice President – Central Division.

“During the last 20 years we have been building the very best resources in the packaging industry,” said Binkowski. “I look forward to continue driving our growth.”

Binkowski is a graduate of the College of St. Francis, with a degree in Marketing and Finance.


Strope also announced the hiring of Jim Dugan as Executive Vice President – Central Division. Dugan is a proven sales leader, who most recently was an Executive Vice President with Shoes for Crews, said Strope. Prior to that, Dugan held sales management positions with Cintas Corporation and RR Donnelley & Sons, Inc. 


Dugan earned a B.A. from the University of Cincinnati, with a double major in Marketing and Management.

“I look forward to Jim’s leadership and his introduction of additional best practices from other industries,” said Strope.

Strope said that the company continues to add talent to support expansion. TricorBraun recently announced the acquisition of Canadian-based Salbro Bottle, as well as the launch of a major, sales recruiting initiative.

“We have a strong plan for future growth,” said Strope. “Filling these two key positions with such quality people will allow us continued success, well into the future.”
