Anders Olsson has nearly 20 year’s industry experience in the global consumer packaging sector, and will be a valuable addition to the UK board, helping to support PEFC’s commitment to sustainable forest products.
Olsson is currently commercial director for the UK and Ireland and Strategic Account Lead with WestRock, the corrugated and consumer packaging specialist which was formed when MeadWestvaco merged with RockTenn in 2015.
Prior to the formation of WestRock, Olsson had worked as commercial director for the UK and Ireland with MeadWestvaco for just over 3 years, joining them in 2012 from packaging beverage specialist, Tetra Pak, where he held a variety of positions from 1997, most recently as marketing and key account director for Ireland.
PEFC UK’s chairman Ross Bradshaw commented: “PEFC has long recognised the importance of having key stakeholder groups represented on its Governing Board. We are fortunate enough to be able to call upon the expertise of senior figures from a wide range of industry sectors and Ander’s appointment will ensure that the voice of the packaging sector is heard.”
