“Today, I can look back on six years of successful work at Greiner Packaging, characterized by openness and a strong creative drive, for which I want to thank all colleagues at Greiner Packaging. In this sense, I did not take the decision to take up a new position lightly. At the same time, I am looking forward to actively shaping Greiner Packaging for another six months and to continuing to be part of the Greiner family, starting in 2023 in the new position of Chief Operating Officer," Manfred Stanek sums up the new developments.

It has not yet been decided who will take over from Manfred Stanek as head of the Greiner Packaging division. What is certain, however, is that Greiner Packaging will continue on its successful path and actively promote the transformation to a circular economy.
