Paperboard and carton manufacturer PaperWorks Industries has announced two senior-level promotions. Karl Broderick has been named vice-president of sales and Peter Jesus will now be vice-president of packaging development and support services.
Previously, both Broderick and Jesus held positions with Boehmer Box Company, which was recently acquired by PaperWorks. They will be responsible for the company’s entire North American footprint, in their respective areas.
“Both Karl and Peter are experienced professionals in sales and package development, respectively. Their collective abilities will help guide our brand-owner and private-label customers from ideation all the way through to commercialization of innovative and cost-effective carton solutions,” said Brandon Clairmont, senior vice-president, packaging sales and marketing.
Previously, Broderick had been vice-president of sales and marketing for Boehmer’s Canadian facility and Jesus had been the vice-president of digital services for the same operation. Both bring several decades of experience to their expanded roles.
“In today’s marketplace, it’s not only about creating eye-catching cartons, but it’s also about helping customers optimize their packaging operation. Our new organizational structure, coupled with our vertically-integrated manufacturing capability, is designed to do just that,” Clairmont said. “These two professionals will assist us in unveiling leading-edge carton-making and printing technologies in the coming year.”
PaperWorks Industries operates multiple coated recycled paperboard mills, as well as sheeting and converting facilities. It acquired CanAmPac, the parent company of Strathcona Paper (Napanee, Ont.), folding carton manufacturer Boehmer Box and LYFT Visual graphic services in 2015.
