Chris Saumell

Sales Manager

I graduated from Loyola University in 1989 with a BA in English with a minor in business.  I started a career in corrugated packaging with Tim-Bar and was there for 14 years before moving to Columbia Container in 2003.  I have created many long term relationships in Baltimore and its surrounding areas with a focus on trust and providing value. I reside in Phoenix, MD and enjoy spending time with my wife, 3 kids and 2 dogs. I also enjoy playing golf, reading, and rooting for the Orioles and Ravens.

Kevin Parks

Sales Rep

I began my career as a PGA Golf Professional after graduating from Campbell University in 2008 with a business degree. I joined the sales team at Columbia Container in 2015 and quickly grew into a sales professional. I build long-term relationships with customers by establishing trust with timely communication and attention to detail. I enjoy golfing, Baltimore sports, and spending time with my growing family.

Colin Moynihan

Sales Rep

I’ve been selling for Columbia Container since 2017. I graduated from college in 2017 with a BS in Accounting. I’ve lived in Baltimore for my entire life and enjoy golfing, watching hometown sports teams (Ravens, Orioles, Capitals), as well as going down to the beach and being with my family. I am passionate about all of my customer’s businesses/products and look forward to new experiences and opportunities. If there is ever anything I can do, I am just a phone call away.

I joined the Columbia Container team in June 2017 and feel very fortunate to be part of such a quality team. My family & I reside in Lancaster County, PA. My wife’s name is Marcie & my two sons are Brody and Palmer. I’ve been a Sales Professional for 20+ years. We take great pride in responding to our clients’ requests and/or needs in a very responsive manner. We build long-lasting relationships based on trust and performance. We value those relationships and that will reflect in our daily actions.

I joined the Columbia Container sales team in August 2022. I have lived in Columbia since my move to the states from Nepal in 2008. I enjoy spending time with my family, cars, sports and playing fetch with my yorkie Simba. I excel at making trustworthy connections with customers that will last. I am always ready to learn new things because I believe we can never stop learning. I am very excited to be a part of such a wonderful company, meet new clients, and learn more about what they do. I am always ready to help!
