BJ Ball NZ appoints new CEO

Sustainable paper and packaging solutions business BJ Ball has announced the appointment of its new CEO, former Caspack general manager, Daniel Telfer.

With the recent departure of outgoing CEO, Richard Hislop, Telfer has commenced his new position heading up BJ Ball.

A former customer of BJ Ball for more than 10 years as managing director of Interpac Packaging, Telfer is no stranger to the industry.

During his time at Interpac, prior to its sale to Huhtamaki Foodservice, Telfer was immersed in the print and packaging industry and knows it well.

His latest role was general manager with specialists in sustainable shelf-life extension for food packaging, Caspak Products.

Telfer says he is excited to be involved in the industry again and looks forward to playing a role in diversifying and securing BJ Ball’s future, “allowing it to continue to be a both supplier and employer of choice for customers and people.”

The BJ Ball Group supplies paper and packaging substrates plus roll and encompasses a diverse range of business units within the paper and communication media sector. Its operational reach extends from New Zealand to Australia, the Pacific Islands and South East Asia.

Established in Sydney in 1918, BJ Ball has more than 100 years of experience servicing a wide range of customers across many market sectors and is well-positioned for growth through product and market development.

The team at BJ Ball says it is looking forward to having Telfer on board to lead the business into a successful 2024.
