Barry Kallman, VP, sales for the western region, is retiring effective August 31 after 31 years with Rollem. He was recruited by Baumfolder in 1972 as a salesman in Southern California, and was subsequently promoted to the western regional sales manager, where he built a successful sales team. In the late 70s, Baumfounder was sold, and Barry was promoted to the position of western regional VP of sales and marketing. Kallman was responsible for Baumfolder donating one of their products to Cal Poly Colleges Graphic Arts Dept.

In 1988, after Baumfolder was sold again, he was approached by Larry Corwin at Rollem Corporation of America to join them and help market a new product, the TR Die Score System. He eagerly joined the company in 1989 as VP of sales and helped Rollem become one of the leaders in print finishing systems throughout the world. He sold in the U.S., Canada, Indonesia, South Africa, Australia, and the Philippines.

Kallman is now looking forward to playing golf with his son and 3 grandsons and “living the dream.”
