 Personally, I come from a farming family in eastern North Carolina, and prior to joining the Atlantic team, I worked in finance with a specialization in agricultural lending. So I am very aware of input costs and the effect they have on a farming operation's bottom line. Cash flows can be tight during certain times of the year, and that is where Atlantic's program can provide value.

Graham Whitehead

Graham grew up in eastern North Carolina, the son of a cotton and peanut farmer. He worked summers on the family farm and understands inherently the dedication and work it takes to be successful in this industry. He also grew to appreciate the importance of the farming industry to the North Carolina community.

Graham’s early career was in commercial real estate with a specialization in farm land and timber tracts. With this experience, he transitioned to finance in a position with an agricultural lender. Graham has successfully established many relationships within the agribusiness community. Through these pursuits Graham has gained a broad perspective and appreciation for the importance agriculture has on our overall economy. He came to understand the particular concerns that these business owners face, particularly the effects that input costs can have on a farmer’s cash flow.

In 2014, Graham brought his valuable insight to Atlantic, helping to put together packaging and supply programs for farmers that would bring stability and remove some of the layers of risk that these customers face. By offering integrated packaging system lines, competitive pricing, excellent service, and routine deliveries, Atlantic’s agriculture and produce program brings incredible value to our farming community.

Mark Bullard

Mark is a second-generation packaging salesperson and brings to this position all the depth, knowledge and insight only someone with this kind of background can gain.

With early immersion in the world of packaging sales through his father’s 20-plus year career with Dillard Paper, Mark began working for Dillard while in high school. From pulling orders, to shipping and receiving, customer service, billing and purchasing, Mark has gained a diverse and comprehensive education in packaging that informs his work today.

Mark was still working for Dillard (later acquired by Xpedx) while also studying at UNCW in his late teens and early twenties. After graduating in 2000 and continuing to build his career, he recognized that Atlantic, as a privately held company, offered greater opportunity for growth and success in sales.

He transitioned over to Atlantic in 2004 and has worked with a variety of customers, primarily with growers in eastern North Carolina, and with customers in the automotive industry. Mark is also privileged to be able to call on some of the same customers his father, Jackie Bullard, called on throughout his own sales career.

Mark’s attention to detail, his diverse and expansive knowledge of the packaging world, and his innate ability for working with people have proven to be a great asset to his customers and to Atlantic overall.
