Pattie Wexler watched her father, Max Wexler, launch Wexler Packaging Products in 1974. She joined her father’s company in 1978, back when it was a much different operation, and only selling tape, tape machines, and self-seal paper bands. A few years in, the competition was getting strong from master distributors and Pattie had to put on her trailblazing hat and pioneered her way through the industry to create a niche, and to prove herself as a woman in packaging, successfully navigating triumph as a woman in a male-dominated industry
The company has always focused on niche products and equipment and in 1997, Pattie officially became President and incorporated Wexler Packaging Products, becoming certified as a women-owned company soon after.
Since then, she has worked tirelessly to build the brand while navigating the industry and has turned Wexler Packaging Products into the successful family-owned business it is today. Her commitment to sustainability and being a trusted advisor, sharing the advantages of banding with others is engrained in her. Pattie’s enthusiasm and drive has shaped this company into a successful business that now employs almost 20 others who all care about its success.
When she isn’t donning her President’s hat, Pattie enjoys going to a show, traveling, trying new restaurants, and spending time at the shore with friends and family.
