PEFC Strengthens Board with Packaging Sector Appointment

Published on 10 March 2016

The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), has announced the appointment of a new industry specialist representative to its UK board. 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.

Anders 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, Anders 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.
