Southampton, Pa. — Tubing manufacturer NewAge Industries has promoted Ken Liszewski and Tony Szoka to new positions. Liszewski is now the Global Sales Manager for NewAge’s AdvantaPure® high purity products group, and Szoka is the company’s National Sales Manager for NewAge products.
Liszewski has been with NewAge for over 20 years, having started as an order picker in the warehouse.

NewAge’s CEO, Ken Baker, noted that Liszewski “has shown a commitment to excellence in performance and embodies the NewAge basic guiding principles in his everyday work. Ken’s developed relationships with customers, and that’s something that takes talent and time – building trust, being responsive, offering guidance.”
In his new role, Liszewski will be responsible for leading the AdvantaPure Sales Team, optimizing the group’s sales distribution channels, and developing a sales strategy that will meet company goals.
Szoka, a five-year employee, joined NewAge as a Sales Representative. His natural ability to work with others was quickly recognized and led to the coaching and mentoring of coworkers, which helped the team grow and provide improved customer experiences.
