Belal, R&D Global Head of Packaging

I joined pladis as R&D Global Head of Packaging. Previously I had spent time with a global food manufacturing organisation and other FMCG organisations in Germany and the Netherlands.

My recent experience has been to define and deliver a packaging strategy in collaboration with key internal partners whilst developing teams to deliver successful packaging solutions.

The reason I joined pladis was the vibrant energy and passion I felt during the interview process.  I was at a point in my career where I needed a change and when I met the Chief R&D Officer I could sense a buzz. It felt energising and drew me to pladis.

Since joining pladis I’ve met some amazing people who are teaching me a lot. I’m involved in some very exciting products which I believe will be game-changing for our industry and which have backing from the very top of our leadership.
