Adam brings with him a wealth of experience in design management from the likes of Elanders, WestRock Company and Chesapeake Branded Packaging. He will use his extensive experience to develop plastic alternatives using Cullen’s corrugated packaging. These will help Cullen’s extensive array of brand clients to achieve sustainability goals, maximise brand impact, and boost sales.
David MacDonald, Cullen ECO-Friendly Packaging’s Owner, commented: “We’re growing fast and our exports tripled in the past five years, so it’s encouraging to see an increase in companies of all sizes, industry-wide, turning to our sustainable packaging solutions as a greener alternative to single-use plastic. Bringing in a talented creative and natural problem-solver like Adam is a great example of how Cullen is meeting the rapidly growing needs of sustainably driven businesses, nationally and internationally. ”
Adam Troy, Senior Packaging Design Manager, said:
“As someone who is motivated by the opportunity to have a direct impact on the world, I am looking forward to starting a new role that will allow me to do exactly this. Cullen’s scale is unrivalled, making over one billion products for customers in over 34 countries. It’s a designer’s dream to be able to get innovation at that sort of scale that makes a genuine impact worldwide.”
