The organisation represents the interests of the sector at a European level and on the international stage.
Brussels based Blatrix previously served as vice chairman and is replaced in that role by Paddy Mullaney of Clondalkin.
Both appointments were made during the FPE summer conference, held recently in Hamburg.
“I am delighted and honoured to have been appointed to such an important role in this prestigious organisation,” said Blatrix. “FPE works continuously to promote the interests of the flexible packaging sector in Europe, particularly to the European Commission. It is taking a leading role in communicating the benefits of flexible packs and explaining their importance in creating a more resource efficient and sustainable environment.
“The focus on the Circular Economy and a more holistic approach to the entire sustainability question means flexible packaging will become an increasingly important factor in reaching these goals, particularly through greater resource efficiency. FPE is highly proactive in the debate and l will work to ensure our well researched and positive approach is maintained and we are represented at the highest levels in Europe.”
