European plastics packaging manufacturer announces changes to senior management team

In line with an ambitious future growth strategy, leading European manufacturer of plastics packaging for the food industry, Faerch Plast, has announced that Joe Iannidinardo will relinquish his role as managing director of the UK business to take up an exciting new group position as sales director (new markets) – with effect from 1 February 2015.

Iannidinardo’s new role meets Faerch Plast’s objective to exploit the huge market potential that it recognises for CPET globally. His new team will be resourced to reflect this potential and will include specialists in the Ready Meals and Airline Catering industries. He will also be supported by a sales project manager.

In addition, Jason Gale has been promoted to UK sales director and will also be acting managing director. An experienced sales professional with excellent management skills, Gale has been employed at Faerch Plast for 13 years. Prior to his new role, he was senior sales manager GB North.

Lars Gade Hansen, Faerch Plast A/S CEO, said: “Joe has done a fantastic job as managing director of the UK business and we now want to utilise those skills to benefit the Group. He will be responsible for identifying previously untapped markets outside of Europe where we are well established as market leader.

“Joe leaves a strong team in the UK and we are confident that Jason will take the business forward into its next phase of growth. The board want to take this opportunity to wish them both every success for the future.”
