THE WHAT? Quadpack has named Alexandra Chauvigne as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Chauvigne replaces Co-Founder Tim Eaves, who will remain as Chairman of the packaging firm’s Board of Directors and take on the newly created role of Chief Impact Officer.
THE DETAILS Chauvigné joins from Consumer Packaging, a business unit of DS Smith, where she was General Manager. She brings over 25 years of leadership experience and strong track record in the packaging industry.
“I am extremely happy to be joining Quadpack and I am thankful for the trust Tim and the Board of Directors have placed in me,” she commented. “We have exciting times ahead, with motivated and talented teams, strong capabilities and sound values. I look forward to bringing the company to the next level and continuing to foster positive impact on our environment.”
THE WHY? The move subscribes to good governance practice, separating the roles of CEO and Chairman for improved transparency and accountability and will allow Eaves to devote more time to social and environmental sustainability initiatives.
