Jeff Fielkow, the new CEO and president of Tetra Pak US and Canada
Tetra Pak has appointed Jeff Fielkow, the former vice-president of sustainability for the company’s Asia Pacific unit, as the new CEO and president of its US and Canada division.
Fielkow most recently held the dual positions of managing director of Tetra Pak Vietnam and vice-president of sustainability for Tetra Pak’s Asia Pacific region, but will now lead the company’s operations in the North American market.
Fielkow first joined Tetra Pak in 2009 as the vice-president of sustainability and recycling for the US, but left the company in 2011 to serve as chief sales and marketing officer at ReCommunity Recycling. However, Fielkow then returned to Tetra Pak in 2015 to aid the company’s sustainability operations in South Asia, East Asia and Oceania.
Prior to joining Tetra Pak, Fielkow held a variety of leadership role including chief operating officer of Chicago-based Container Recycling, and market area vice president for Waste Management.
Fielkow said in a statement: “It’s an honour to have been selected to lead Tetra Pak’s growing, dynamic US and Canada market.
“I am excited to return to the US and begin working with our talented team to capture new growth opportunities and make a meaningful difference with our clear focus on food safety and sustainability.”
