Rondo-Pak, a leading provider of quality folding cartons, printed components to the pharmaceutical, medical device and consumer industries, has hired packaging industry veteran David Phillipes as Senior VP of Sales & Marketing. In this role, Mr. Phillipes will collaborate with the company’s senior-level executives to develop sales strategies for Rondo-Pak’s two core markets: packaging solutions and printed marketing materials.
Mr. Phillipes joins Rondo-Pak in the wake of the company’s recent strategic merger with Contemporary Graphic Solutions, as well as a move into an expanded facility in Camden, NJ. The relocation included a $30 million investment in new state-of-the-art printing and finishing equipment, added and enhanced services and capabilities, and increased warehousing capacity for a more streamlined order fulfillment process. The facility will be home to several new packaging technologies currently under development.
Mr. Phillipes brings with him a wealth of experience. Most recently, he served as a sales leader for Rohrer Corporation, a specialty packaging manufacturing company in the carded blister and visual packaging sectors. He also has deep experience in the pharmaceutical folding carton, leaflets and labels business, having served as VP of Sales for both Multi Packaging Solutions and Caraustar. Mr. Phillipes also held the position of Director of Sales at Cadmus/Cenveo, where he was responsible for pharma market brand positioning via packaging and printing solutions.
“With his impressive professional background, David is well suited to help Rondo-Pak continue to develop its unique value proposition: the ability to create solutions that provide the precision of packaging with the agility of marketing,” said Victor Dixon, President & COO of Rondo-Pak.
Mr. Phillipes is a member of several industry organizations, including PDE and HCPC. He earned a degree in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech. He has been married for 26 years and is a father of two; he resides in Emmaus, PA.
