New Effort Taps Talent
to Lead Industry's future
BY THOMAS A. BARSTOW

B

efore the pandemic, just about every
industry faced problems f inding qualif ied
workers and people to lead them because of
low jobless rates and high competition for
talent. Companies in the f lexible packaging industry
were no exception. And because their products
made them part of the critical infrastructure during
COVID-19, the need to f ind good workers has
only accelerated.
Amid the evolving dynamic, the Flexible Packaging
Association created the Emerging Leadership Council
(ELC) to tap leaders to guide the industry into the

future. Jonathan Quinn, e-commerce packaging market
manager for NOVA Chemicals Inc. and the chair of
the ELC, became interested in flexible packaging as a
child and is now the third generation of his family to be
involved in the industry. He says he has been suggesting
something like the council for years.
" One of the top ways to prepare for a career in the
industry is to complete an internship, " Quinn says.
" Doing real work at an organization will help students determine whether they want a more technical,
operational, or commercial career, help them develop
industry contacts, and may lead to a job offer. "
