Parkside, a packaging solutions provider, has announced that Paula Birch has been appointed the Director & General Manager of the company's Asian operations. Effective immediately, Ms. Birch will take up the new position alongside her current Global Sales Director role - a position she has held for the last two years.
The new appointment will see Ms. Birch relocate to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to drive new business opportunities in key packaging markets, including tobacco and food, across the Asian region.
Speaking about her new appointment, Ms. Birch said: "At Parkside, we pride ourselves on being industry-leading innovators across the print and packaging sectors. I am delighted to take up this new role in a significant growth period in the Asian market and show just what our business is capable of. With emergent technologies and process efficiencies being implemented at our Malaysian site, coupled with increasing demands for compostable, recyclable and lightweight, flexible packaging solutions, I'm excited about what the future holds for us as a business."
Over recent years, Parkside has repositioned its brand and service offering, gaining a strong foothold in the European food packaging sector. The business is renowned for its keen focus on sustainable, flexible packaging solutions. Paula's new role will see her implement this strategy in the Asian packaging market, while building on its sterling reputation for tobacco packaging in the region.
