Jayne Sebastian, Director of Business Development
Jayne has nearly 20 years of experience in business development tied directly to contract manufacturing and co-packaging. Although Jayne’s expertise lies in sales, marketing, and communications, she began her college education by studying dietetics. Her interest in nutrition, meal planning, food processing, and special diets gave way to her natural talents in the communications/marketing arena, but she always maintained a strong connection to her initial field of study. Ultimately, the Chicago native was able to parlay her business strengths and her passion for nutrition into a consulting/marketing career in the food and beverage manufacturing industry, helping to launch new food and beverage products for some of the leading manufacturers in the United States. She joined Tampa Bay CoPack (now SEBB) in April 2011.
