TC Transcontinental appoints new president of packaging sector
Transcontinental Inc has appointed Thomas Morin as president of TC Transcontinental Packaging effective July 1, 2019. Based in Chicago, in the United States, Mr. Morin will report to François Olivier, president and CEO of the corporation, and he will be part of the executive management committee.
Morin will take over from Brian Reid, who has been with the corporation for over 25 years. Moving forward, Mr. Reid will dedicate his time exclusively to his role of president of TC Transcontinental Printing, Canada’s largest printer, a position he has held for more than 10 years.
As president of TC Transcontinental Packaging, Mr. Morin will have full profit and loss (P&L) responsibility and provide strategic and thought leadership to the sector’s operations and plants around the world. He will be in charge of establishing long-term goals and strategies as well as executing business plans, aiming for further efficiency and profit maximisation. In support of the corporation’s vision, Mr. Morin will be responsible for overseeing the expansion of the packaging business in all its markets through organic sales growth and acquisitions, as well as managing investments by ensuring that proposed capital expenditures are in line with the strategy.
“We are very pleased to welcome Thomas Morin as president of TC Transcontinental Packaging at a time where our company has already established itself as a North American leader in flexible packaging after only five years in this space,” said François Olivier.
“Mr. Morin has a solid track record developing, implementing, harmonising and managing merging businesses, overseeing complex manufacturing operations with multiple sites in different geographic locations. As we are poised to continue expanding our packaging business, Mr. Morin’s extensive knowledge of the packaging industry and leadership will be key assets for our organisation.”
Mr. Morin brings more than 23 years of global packaging experience, the past 13 years spent managing $1B+ businesses for which he had full P&L responsibility, and overseeing a workforce comprised of thousands of employees located in dozens of factories around the world. Most recently, he served as vice president of south east Asia for Amcor Flexible Packaging Asia Pacific in Singapore, a position he has held for the past two years.
