Tetra Pak, a leading food processing and packaging solutions company, has named industry veteran Brian Kennell to president and CEO for the U.S. and Canada. He was previously VP of finance and business transformation for North America.
In his new role, Kennell will be tasked with furthering Tetra Pak's efforts in efficiencies, quality, sustainability and customer service, as well as supporting the company's culture of innovation and adaptation to customer needs.
The company made particular note of Kennell's commitment to sustainability, having led Tetra Pak's recent launch of "Moving To The Front," a campaign that raises awareness among industry stakeholders of the importance of sustainable raw material sourcing and use of renewable resources.
“It’s critical for senior management to foster an organization-wide culture of change,” Kennell said. “That means building and empowering teams beyond top management who are versatile and nimble, and capable of adapting to, and embracing, an evolving status quo.”
Before joining Tetra Pak, Kennell worked at Arthur Andersen and a privately held manufacturing company.
