Meet Pelle Gedda!


Q: Describe yourself in 3 words
A: Curious, impatient, positive.

Q: What’s something quirky about you?
A: Don’t know…that I by myself raise the middle age in my building with 10 years…?!

Q: What is your favorite thing to do in Grand Rapids?
A: Try out all amazing breweries, restaurants, art and live music venues that Grand Rapids have to offer.

Q: Where do you work? Tell us about your job!
A: I work as a Technical Key Account Manager for Tetra Pak within the TS&S (Technical Sales & Service) organization based in Vernon Hills, Illinois. It’s a company with its origin in Sweden that provides solutions and equipment (process and filling machines) to dairy, beverage, prepared food and cosmetic industry. My responsibilities are, together with my customers, to find solutions for performance improvements, trainings, spare parts, and handle any questions that might occur regarding our equipment. I’ve been traveling around the world for the last 15 years as Site Manager for Tetra Pak’s Global Project organization, building and starting up dairy and beverage plants, so sales is a new area to me, but after this first year… I must say I really love it!

Q: How do you spend your free time?
A: Traveling, reading, yoga, brewing beer… I work out as often as I can to be able to keep up with all the good food and drinks. Outdoor activities… golf, hiking, and biking during the time of the year that Michigan weather permits!

Q: Why live at 616 Lofts?
A: I looked at a lot of apartments before I got in touch with 616 Lofts…. a great apartment with great location, great tenants and 616 staff with a friendly, positive. The fun attitude and go ahead-spirit made the choice easy.
