WPO President Elect Pierre Pienaar (left) with incumbent President Tom Schneider.
Pierre Pienaar, education director of the Australian Institute of Packaging, has been elected as the next president of the World Packaging Organisation (WPO).
Pienaar, who is currently VP Education for the WPO, will take office in January 2018 when current president Tom Schneider’s term ends.
The appointment is timely, as Australia will next year host the prestigious WPO WorldStar Awards, which coincides with the 100th WPO bi-annual meeting, and which will take place at Surfers Paradise, Queensland in early May alongside the AIP National Conference.
PKN spoke to Pienaar at Interpack this week, shortly after the announcement.
