CINCINNATI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#flexiblepackaging–ProAmpac, a leading global flexible packaging company, today announced that Rita Cox has been named President of the company’s Flexibles Products division. Ms. Cox was previously President of the company’s Extrusion and Lamination division and rejoins the company following a brief retirement.

“ProAmpac embodies all of the values I look for in a business and I am thrilled to take on this new leadership role as the company, and its Flexibles Products division, continues its growth momentum,” said Ms. Cox. “With ProAmpac’s track record of innovation, a culture of creativity and collaboration, and commitment to excellence in product quality and customer service, I am eager to work again with our talented team and continue delivering for our customers.”
“Rita’s deep industry expertise and leadership experience within our company uniquely position her as the ideal leader for our Flexibles Products division,” said Greg Tucker, ProAmpac CEO. “Rita brings an exceptional skill set and proven results to this role. She established our Extrusion and Lamination division as an industry pacesetter for innovation and she directly contributed to the company’s long-term growth by overseeing our integration of CEI in the fall of 2015. I am confident she will immediately continue building on the fantastic momentum we have within the Flexibles Products division, and I am so pleased to welcome Rita back to the ProAmpac family.”
Mr. Tucker continued, “On behalf of all of us at ProAmpac, we thank Tom for his many years of service and significant contributions to the company. He created tremendous growth for the Flexibles Division with ProAmpac’s new go-to market approach which led to increased new business. Serving as a company CEO has long been a career aspiration for Tom, and I am thrilled for him that he will be achieving this goal. We wish him the very best in his new role.”
