New director at Valpak reflects “changing landscape” of packaging compliance
Valpak, the UK’s largest compliance scheme, has begun 2020 with a new appointment that, says the company, “reinforces its commitment to provide a one-stop-shop for customers.”
Kieran Roche, previously at CBRE Group where he was commercial director for property management, takes up the appointment as Director of New Business at Valpak, bringing a “track record in growing business in a customer friendly way that will build upon the strengths of the existing team.”
Roche said: “Valpak is well known for reliability and quality of service when it comes to compliance, but in recent years the team has developed a range of services that help customers address challenges across the whole packaging supply chain. We anticipate demand for these value-added services to escalate in light of the changes to producer responsibility legislation, and it is our ambition to support our customers in a manner that leaves them healthier.”
Valpak is part of the Reconomy group, and as well as managing packaging, WEEE and battery compliance, the company has developed a suite of services designed to ease the path to more sustainable packaging design and straightforward compliance.
Roche concluded: “With the Reconomy acquisition and our growing suite of services, we’re providing a more end-to-end service, and we’ll be able to share the benefits with our clients over the coming months.”
