Eric J. Wilhelm, known as The Disruptive CEO, is an innovative, results-driven entrepreneur. He’s held controlling interest in a number of ventures across a wide range of industries, but his roots are in the supply chain and logistics. Today, that’s where his passion lies. In the early 90s, Eric founded Wilpak, a supply chain/contract packaging company. As CEO, he increased revenue and profits over 13 consecutive years. In 2006, Eric sold Wilpak to The Jacobson Companies to create a fully integrated supply chain solution. In 2011, Eric began the process that would lead to the founding of Coregistics. Today, he also sits on the board of directors for the Contract Packaging Association. As a buyer, builder, and seller of supply chain/packaging companies, Eric’s approach has long been clear. He hires exceptional people and creates a culture that encourages superior performance. He sets the bar extremely high for himself and his company, across all verticals.
Eric and his wife Deborah are committed to making a difference in the lives of others. They actively continue their fundraising efforts for numerous Atlanta area charities, including Be The Match. When not challenging his team daily, Eric can be found on the family’s equestrian farm tractor or spending time with the youngest Wilhelm, as a new grandpa.
