Packaging leader Tetra Pak has named a new president and CEO of the company. Seth Teply has been named to the position after spending 20 years with Tetra Pak, most recently holding the position of vice president of services in the U.S. and Canada.

Tetra Pak produces packaging for both branded and private label products. The company recently announced its Tetra Pak Leap Accelerator Program, designed to connect brands of all sizes with Tetra Pak contract manufacturers to “fast-track and fine-tune” product development and commercial production. Tetra Pak employs 25,000 employees, and serves over 160 countries with its products.

“I am thrilled to lead our U.S. and Canada business as we continue to drive innovative solutions in food processing and packaging and deliver transformative change on our journey to create the world’s most sustainable food package,” said Teply. “At a time of increased economic and environmental volatility, the food value chain is more important than ever. Our continued success in an increasingly competitive landscape is due in large part to the relentless dedication of our team to meet the needs of our customers. It is my privilege to take the helm of our organization as we continue to build for the future.”

Teply first joined Tetra Pak in 2001 as a process automation engineering intern and has held a variety of roles within the company over the years. In his most recent position as VP of services in the U.S. and Canada, he worked with customers across all food and beverage categories to help drive efficiency and sustainability in their operations. Teply holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical and computer engineering from Valparaiso University.
