Doug Aldred has been appointed as President of Flint Group’s Packaging and Narrow Web division for Europe and North America. He assumes responsibility for the company’s global packaging and narrow-web strategies and will report directly to Antoine Fady, Chief Executive Officer.
Following a series of mergers that formed Flint Group in 1994, Aldred joined the company as a manufacturing manager within its Canada operations. In 1998, he was appointed as General Manager, Sheetfed Europe.
With Flint-Schmidt he became Global VP for the company’s Sheetfed division and in 2005 was appointed as VP for Packaging EMEA. In 2009, Aldred became responsible for all sales and business development in Packaging and Narrow Web EMEA.
“This is another example of a key appointment being made from within the Flint Group business, which is always pleasing to see,” stated CEO, Antoine Fady. “[Aldred] has played a key role in growing the European business in his position as VP for Packaging EMEA and was instrumental in the successful acquisitions of Torda and in Russia. Under Doug’s leadership, we have also established an important joint venture in Turkey and an international key account strategy.”
