Novolex has made steps to expand its sustainability and public affairs team with the appointments of Phil Rozenski as vice president of public affairs and Erik Gronrig as new director of sustainability.
Both roles have been newly created by the firm as it looks to expand its sustainability and public affairs capabilities to support a growing portfolio of brands and products.
The firm, a leader in packaging choice and sustainability, serves a number of industries including foodservice and hospitality.
Its CEO Stan Bikuleg said: “As we grow our business, we are constantly expanding our focus on sustainability and engaging with a wide array of stakeholders who are equally committed to understanding and meeting sustainability goals.”
Rozenski’s moves to his new role having already worked for the company in a number of positions for the past 12 years. His role will include public policy matters, stakeholder relations and sustainability engagement.
He said: “It’s an exciting time for the Novolex due to our increasing scale and relevance. We’re learning a lot from our investments in sustainability, giving us insights that will help us contribute to the supply chains in which we participate. That also requires us to participate in many diverse partnerships. We’re fortunate to have the resources in place to support a strategy that will continue to drive the company forward.”
Gronrig previously held positions in sustainability and communications with McDonald’s Corporation and the J.R. Simplot Company and will focus on key trends in the sustainability space, supporting the company’s growth as its product portfolio continues to expand.
Both new positions will report to a yet to be appointed senior vice president.
