We’re thrilled to announce the promotion of Paula Alvarez to Director of Production. In this role, Paula will lead Gilbert’s production team to represent the Gilbert brand and deliver products and services of exceptional quality to our trade show, retail, hospitality, corporate, and residential clients. She will also oversee Gilbert’s manufacturing and warehouse facilities to increase efficiencies and incorporate new technologies to continue to establish Gilbert as the premier destination for solutions to our clients’ needs. 

“No matter what role she’s played at Gilbert, Paula has always proven to be one of the greatest assets of our team,” said Barry Ballen, President and CEO of Gilbert. “As someone with a wealth of experience, passion, and drive, Paula is the perfect person to take our production team to the next level and deliver excellence to our clients.”

Paula joined Gilbert in 2005 as a Logistics Clerk and was quickly promoted to Logistics Manager after demonstrating impressive problem solving and leadership qualities. For the next 12 years, Paula led Gilbert’s logistics and warehouse operations as she continued to take on more responsibility and provide increasing value to the company.
