Advanced Process Technologies, Inc. (APT) is celebrating 15 years serving the dairy, food, and beverage industries while adding Philip Cunningham to its team as vice president: sales. Cunningham’s primary focus will be to further coordinate plans and strategies for developing new business while strengthening current customer relationships.
Cunningham’s career started in production and project management in the New Zealand and Australian dairy industry, with cross-industry and international experience. He left dairy operations in 1992 to join Diversey NZ where he held the position as sales manager for the Industrial Chemicals Segment. In early 1997, Cunningham joined GEA Westfalia Separator NZ as business development manager, handling sales, process development, and project execution. In 2002, Cunningham transferred to GEA North America, working in the mechanical separation segment as dairy market manager. During Cunningham’s time at GEA North America, his responsibilities expanded and he held the position of sales manager: covering dairy, beverage, oil, and fat processing for GEA North America until March 2015.
APT President Craig Campbell expressed his enthusiasm about the new addition to the APT team by stating, “His background with the food, dairy, and beverage industry makes him a great fit for APT as we continue to support our current customers and grow APT.” This year marks the 15th year in the industry for APT. “As we head into our 16th year, we are honored to have such an asset as Philip Cunningham on our team,” Campbell said. “We look forward to continued success over the next 15 years,” Campbell continued.
