Palmer will manage Viega’s sales strategies in the state of Florida, which previously was part of the Southeast region.

“The combination of Greg’s management experience and his first-hand, on-the-ground knowledge of the customer base in this area will allow him to effectively lead this seasoned sales team in pursuit of our strategic objectives,” said Mark Evans, director of sales-North America, Viega. “Greg’s appointment furthers our commitment to enhancing the superior service levels that exist in the region and positions us for future sales growth.”

“I’m honored by the trust Viega has placed in me and I, along with my team, look forward to continuing to work with wholesalers and customers to bring the advantages of Viega pressing technology to the Florida Region,” Palmer said.  

Palmer and his wife, Katharina, live in the Tampa area with their young daughters, Amelia and Emily. In his spare time, Greg is an avid college football fan, especially of his alma mater, the University of Central Florida. The family enjoys the outdoors, hiking and camping.
