The beauty packaging supplier has announced the appointment of ex-DS Smith and Aptar executive, Alexandra Chauvigné as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective 1st of September 2022. Chauvigné succeeds co-founder Tim Eaves, who remains as Chairman of Quadpack’s Board of Directors.

According to Quadpack, the move subscribes to good governance practice, separating the roles of CEO and Chairman for improved transparency and accountability. The shift also allows Tim Eaves to devote more time to social and environmental sustainability initiatives in the newly-created position of Chief Impact Officer.

Alexandra Chauvigné brings over 25 years of leadership experience and strong track record in the packaging industry. She was previously General Manager for Consumer Packaging, a business unit of DS Smith, a global supplier of packaging cardboard solutions. Prior to that, she has held various executive positions within Aptar, a global leader in dispensing packaging solutions. She served from 2018 to 2020 as VP & General Manager for its skincare and colour cosmetics business and from 2011 to 2017 as President, Global Market Development for its beauty business.

Tim Eaves founded the company in 2003, when his company Belcos merged with Lenglart Packaging and Gadbrook Packaging.

Starting as a trading business, Quadpack has grown into a multinational manufacturer, servicing the world’s leading beauty brands. Under Eaves’ direction, it has become a Top 5 European packaging provider, with over 800 staff, 35,000m2 of manufacturing facilities and two regional distribution hubs.

Eaves’ focus on sustainable transformation helped the company obtain B Corp status earlier this year.
