Division Leadership

The International Flexible Packaging & Extrusion Division is made up of hundreds of professionals from consumer products companies, as well as flexible packaging converters and suppliers, film extruders and extrusion coaters. New members are always welcome.

Division Chair: Jim Lush, Celplast Metalized Products
1st Vice Chair: Kelly Frey, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company
2nd Vice Chair: Jim Macnamara, FTD Companies, Inc.

 The Division conferences are held annually and alternate between Europe and North America. In the odd years, the event is held in Europe and in the even years it is held in North America.  In addition to the conference, the division supports an annual Extrusion Coating Course and partners with BNP Media each year to conduct a Stand-up Pouch Workshop prior to the Global Pouch Forum in the summer.

The Technical Teams of the International Flexible Packaging and Extrusion Division work together throughout the year to solve problems, develop technical papers, plan conference sessions, and more.
