Fresh food packaging company Linpac has appointed Nikki Clark as the company’s new group marketing manager.

Clark previously held a marketing management position at Graphic Packaging International (GPI), formerly Benson Group.

 “[Packaging is] a sector that is often misrepresented by the media and that’s why I’m particularly pleased to be able to work for a company with strong sustainability and innovation credentials,” she said.

Dr Helene Roberts, group marketing and innovations director at Linpac, said she was delighted to welcome Clark on board.

“I look forward to working with Nikki to maximise our strategy for growth,” she said.

“Her in-depth understanding of the journey fresh food packaging takes from concept to store equips her with the innate ability to market Linpac products and services to their best advantage.”

In April, Linpac appointed Dr Roberts as the company’s group marketing and innovation director, which was a newly created role.
