Lux Global Label Company, one of the world’s most respected printing packaging companies, announced a series of leadership additions including naming Todd Kennedy as Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors. The company also announced that two labeling and printing industry veterans, Robert (Bob) Coleman and John Wurzburger, have been named to the company’s Board of Directors.
Lux Global Label is the newly formed holding company that purchased certain assets from National Label, a 103-year-old global leader in the labeling industry. The establishment of Lux Global Label was announced by Resilience Capital Partners, a leading private equity firm, on April 28, 2017.
Prior to being named CEO of Lux Global Label, Kennedy served as chief operating officer of The Kennedy Group, a leading producer of labeling solutions. The company provides solutions to label, package, brand, promote, identify and track a wide array of products throughout supply chains around the globe. The Kennedy Group serves a variety of industries including consumer products, food, beverage, material handling, manufacturing, automotive and household chemicals as well as media and promotions companies. The Kennedy Group also is a co-investor in Lux Global Label with Resilience Capital Partners and LBC Credit Partners.
“There is tremendous opportunity for Lux Global Label, a recognized innovator in the labeling and printing industry with an unmatched, 103-year history of serving customers around the globe,” said Kennedy.
With the addition of Bob Coleman and John Wurzburger, both former Avery Dennison executives, Lux Global Label now has a six-member Board of Directors.
“These leadership additions demonstrate that we are already ahead of plan and, within 60 days, have completed operational improvement initiatives that will enable Lux Global Label to build upon a century of excellence in the labeling industry,” said Steven H. Rosen, Co-Chief Executive Officer, Resilience Capital Partners and a member of Lux Global Label’s Board.
