NEW YORK (News release) -- Packaging industry veteran Robert Egan, in partnership with Atlas Holdings, a $16 billion diversified holding company with substantial interests in the global paper and packaging industry, today announced the launch of Packaging Exchange -- a packaging solutions company founded with the mission to re-imagine the packaging supply chain by bringing together our market expertise, proprietary Exchange iO software, and extensive network of industry partnerships.
"Across our leadership team, we have a collective 100-year heritage of packaging industry expertise," said Egan. "We understand this industry and the volatility of today's market, which is why Packaging Exchange is positioned to bring neutrality, efficiency, clarity, and confidence to every aspect of our customers' packaging supply chain. Our diverse network and capabilities truly stand testament to the experience of our incredible team."
Egan added, "We are thrilled to have Atlas Holdings as our partner. Atlas brings a wealth of experience in the packaging and industrial business sectors, having been founded with the purchase of a single corrugated medium mill in Indiana more than two decades ago. Today, packaging, paper, and allied industries remain an important and growing sector for Atlas and this partnership will enable Packaging Exchange to bring unique value to our customers."
In addition to Egan, the Packaging Exchange leadership team comprises Chief Financial Officer Leah Borrello, Chief Operating Officer Brandon Egan, and Chief Analytics Officer Umar Abbas--all of whom hold extensive leadership tenures within the packaging industry. Industry titans Matthew Kaplan (former KapStone Founder & CEO), Dennis Mehiel (former U.S. Corrugated Founder & CEO), and Benjamin Samuels (former Victory Packaging Owner & CEO) have joined Packaging Exchange as Advisory Board members.
Egan founded Packaging Exchange after 22 years of leadership at privately held Victory Packaging. During Egan's tenure as President, COO and Owner, Victory grew organically to over $1 billion in revenues annually. Egan attributes a company's success to a relentless commitment and drive for excellence, while integrating genuine care for team members, clients, vendors, and all stakeholders.
