Flexible and rigid packaging solutions provider Pro-Pac Packaging has appointed Grant Harrod as the company's chief executive officer (CEO).
Mr Harrod will commence in this role late May 2017.
Pro-Pac Packaging chairman Ahmed Fahour said Mr Harrod would replace Mr Brandon Penn, who has been acting CEO of the Company pending the Board's completion of its search for a suitable candidate for the position of CEO.
Mr Penn will resume his role as a non-executive director on the Company's Board. Mr Fahour said the Pro-Pac Board believes Mr Harrod is the right candidate to lead Pro Pac into a new era. "Grant has extensive experience as a CEO of Australian listed companies, and extensive involvement in distribution services, as well as commercial services and FMCG marketing.
We also believe he has the personal qualities and vision to ensure that Pro-Pac continues to embrace and benefit from the ongoing developments occurring in its markets, both in Australia and overseas." Mr Harrod said: "I am delighted to join the Pro-Pac team at a key stage in its journey.
I will inherit a business that is ideally poised for growth. The Company has a number of significant opportunities to continue its consolidation of the packaging industry. Pro Pac is well placed to move to its next stage of growth." On behalf of the Board, Mr Fahour thanked Mr Penn for acting as interim CEO whilst the Board undertook a comprehensive search for its new CEO.
