Info Junkie: Wes Carter

By Staff Reports, posted Sep 17, 2021

Wes Carter

President, Atlantic Packaging

Carter leads efforts at the Wilmington-based packaging and equipment distributor, which is currently working on its new initiative, A New Earth Project, a collaboration with the professional surfing community and the packaging supply chain to rid oceans of plastic waste.
 
Newspapers and magazines he reads include The Wall Street Journal and Harvard Business Review magazine. He also reads from his customized story feed from Google News. For pleasure, he reads Garden & Gun.
 
Favorite podcasts are usually on health and fitness as well as meditation and spirituality. Some include Ben Greenfield Fitness, Wild Health, The Life Stylist and The Third Wave.
 
FUEL TV is great for outdoor sports programming. Game of Thrones is incomparable and is my all-time favorite,” he said. “I just recently finished Our Planet… incredible footage of the Earth and what we must do to save it from environmental destruction.”
 
Favorite apps include Insight Timer for mediation and TuneIn to stream 98.3 The Penguin from anywhere.
 
He finds that LinkedIn is a powerful medium. “I think it is the most powerful sales and branding tool I’ve come across in my career. I’m also a sucker for Instagram and post everything from my kids to the Atlantic on my feed.”
