Company Chairman Anthony Pratt

Company chairman and founder Anthony Pratt has just been named “North American Packaging CEO of the Year” by a leading industry association.

Anthony was selected by RISI, one of the most respected names in the global paper and packaging industry, and will be presented with the award at RISI’s International Containerboard Conference (ICC) Nov. 3-4 in Chicago.

“Our packaging economists and editors selected him among industry leaders for the award for his ‘vision and leadership’ in growing Pratt Industries into one of the largest, lowest cost, and most innovative companies in the North American industry over the past two decades from a virtual startup in this region of the world,” said RISI editor Wil Mies. “This has been achieved by a highly focused strategy emphasizing sustainability in a market already dominated by some of the world’s largest and most efficient virgin containerboard producers. It has been an amazing achievement!”

Anthony’s 5800 co-workers agree.
