Meet Paul Bartelt

Paul Bartelt is president and CEO of Wisconsin-based Vollrath Company. He’s held this position since 2009 after joining the organization as chief operating officer in 2008. With his visionary and strategic leadership, he has grown the company significantly, both organically and through acquisitions. Vollrath has more than doubled in size, stretching across the U.S. as well as into Europe and Asia during his tenure.
