Name: Nicole Rogala
Location: La Crosse WI
What is your current role at Inland? Have you held other roles prior to your current position?
 I am currently a Strategic Account Representative. Prior to this role, I was a Sales Account Specialist. I feel fortunate to have gained the account management experience that I have carried into my new role, which is more focused around sales and growing our valued partnerships with customers!
What impact does your role have on our customers?
My role is centered around our customers. I am focused on building excellent relationships, understanding our customer’s unique challenges, while collaborating internally to come up with the best possible solutions to exceed their expectations.
What aspects of your job do customers see?
I am in constant communication with our customers, which I love! I am always excited at the opportunity to collaborate on new projects and provide innovative ways to make their products stand out, while continuing to grow and nurture our partnerships. I work alongside our Strategic Account Managers to ensure we deliver top notch customer service!
What is your favorite product that Inland produces and why?
While I love so many of the different brands we produce and the variety of design embellishments we offer, I am most proud of the steps we have taken to offer sustainable solutions to our customers. Specifically, our PureWash material we use for pressure sensitive labels. It is a true testament to our initiative to support sustainability while remaining cost effective.
Where is your favorite place in the world?
My family’s cabin in Hayward, WI. While I love the fast-paced packaging world, I appreciate that time seems to slow down ‘Up North’!
What's the last book you read?
Start With Why by Simon Sinek. We recently started an Inland Book Club and this was first on the list. It was a great read, that really made me dig in and explore the reasons behind great leadership!
What's one thing you can't live without?
My family. I have about 45 cousins between my Mom and Dad’s family, all of which live pretty close to me. I feel fortunate to have grown up with a big family and wonderful support system!
You're happiest when?
I have a cup of coffee in my hand! Those who know me know my love for coffee – hot or iced!
