Michelman Invests in Circular Economy Market Expertise

Ms. Lori Gobris has joined Michelman as Global Marketing Manager for Circular Economy.
 
Gobris will be responsible for Michelman’s global market strategy and programs that enable sustainable packaging solutions for the Circular Economy within its Printing & Packaging business segment. She will lead Michelman’s efforts to continue to expand and broaden solutions in the sustainable packaging market space in both fiber based and film-based solutions. Ms. Gobris brings with her nearly 30 years of paper and flexible packaging experience, most recently as a Senior Marketing Manager at Amcor, leading segments across multiple flexible packaging market applications.
