Elopak has announced that Thomas Körmendi will become CEO and president of Elopak Group as of 1 April 2018.
Körmendi is currently CEO at Kezzler, a Norwegian company working with the digitalisation of packaging. Earlier in his career he worked at Tetra Pak in various international positions. His latest position in Tetra Pak was as vice president and head of North Europe.
Chairman of the Elopak board of directors John Giverholt said: “With the recruitment of Thomas Körmendi we have secured an international profile with solid knowledge of the industry to realise the strategic ambitions of the Elopak Group. I look forward to the cooperation with Thomas to further develop and strengthen Elopak.”
Körmendi will be based at Elopak’s Group headquarters in Skøyen, Oslo, Norway.
The news comes after Elopak announced last year that CEO Niels Petter Wright would be leaving the company after ten years at the helm.
Elopak said that, under Wright’s leadership, the business had been “transformed from a company positioned for fresh dairy and juice products to a full aseptic system supplier”.
