Mr. Mutz’s appointment also names him as the incoming Secretary, a duty he will assume at the close of PPI Transport Symposium 22. The appointment comes as a result of Scott Menzies’ notice to the Board of his intent to step down from the role as Secretary/Treasurer.
The appointment is the result of a unanimous vote by the IFPTA Board of Directors at the IFPTA Board of Directors Meeting in November 2016. At the close of PPI Transport Symposium 22, current President, Buddy Greene, will become President Emeritus and continue to support the IFPTA.
Paper and packaging companies have been largely driven by output volume. However, this is no longer sufficient, and new business models and processes can illustrate a successful path into the future. Many organizations are aiming to design a system that better balances demand with production, focuses on profitability, and can also yield a more efficient operations and control system. This transformation requires real-time digital information and control in a digital paper and packaging enterprise.
