ISBT Welcomes New Business Development (Operating Committee) Chair, Nate Fryzek!

We asked Nate to introduce himself to ISBT’s members, and here’s what he had to say.

To know more about me personally & professionally - I've set up almost 150 beverage plants with software and visited many of them! I'd like to get certifications for motorcycles, flying, air ballooning, and much more. I always ask about people's passions so I can connect them, so please share yours with me! Sometimes I get in the car and take off! If you can't find me, I'm probably taking photos or videos, or off the grid on a hike or adventure.

Email me (address in the ISBT Members Directory), or hit me on LinkedIn. Let's connect for 15 minutes so I can support you in what you're doing and find ways that will help ISBT’s membership grow personally and professionally. This is a warm welcome offer, not a warning! 🙂

Lastly, I'll be at drinktec in Europe this year, hoping to connect with ISBT members again to see how ISBT can be of help. Please email me if you are going.
