            CRESSWOOD ADDS PERSONNEL TO THE MANAGEMENT, MARKETING AND SALES TEAMS

CORTLAND, IL --- Cresswood Shredding Machinery would like to share in their excitement the hire of General Manager Ryan Butzman, Marketing Coordinator Jenni Gayden and Applications Engineer Bret DeCamp.

After earning his Bachelor’s Degree from Luther College and his MBA from Capella University, Ryan began his manufacturing career as an engineer with a prominent design and engineering company.  Through many years of experience as an Operations Manager and Production Manager for two Gear and Engineering Companies, Ryan gained a passion for leadership.  Ryan brings an eagerness for safety and productivity that will help take Cresswood to the next level.

“I am dedicated to leading by example and creating positive change in the hands, hearts and minds of my associates each and every day,” Butzman said. “I hold myself accountable to a simple question: What will you do today to show others what greatness looks like?"

After earning her Bachelor’s Degree from Benedictine University, Jenni began her marketing career with a well-known Midwest-based minor league sports team.  Gayden then advanced in her career by marketing for an environmental firm as well as a manufacturing company.  Throughout the course of Jenni’s marketing career, she also has been teaching two sports communications night classes at a local university as an adjunct professor.  In an ever changing world of technology, Jenni will bring her knowledge of the importance of updating website content and social media marketing to Cresswood. 

“I am looking forward to this opportunity with Cresswood,” stated Gayden.  “Everyone here is so kind and welcoming, I can’t wait to hit the ground running and to get Cresswood more visible in the online world.”

After earning his Bachelor’s Degree from Purdue University, Bret began his business development career with various Heating/Cooling and Manufacturing companies.  DeCamp then advanced in his career by becoming a Quality Technician with an American multinational corporation and a Regional Sales Manager with a Midwest Balor manufacturer.  Bret’s strong relationship building skills and world class customer service will keep Cresswood relevant in a competitive market.    

“The company attitude at Cresswood really takes to heart one of my favorite Maya Angelou quotes,” DeCamp mentioned, “ ‘People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’ ”
