Charpak adds Jonathan Pearson to team

Jonathan Pearson joins Charpak as new business development manager adding his 16 years of packaging experience to the Charpak team.

His understanding of all things packaging extends to almost every format and material – from HD/LD poly bags, SRPs, corrugate, tin, to paper.  

Based in Central Scotland, Jonathan’s focus will be to strengthen the existing relationships with Charpak clients in Scotland and develop new business opportunities in the region.

For the last six years Jonathan has been a direct supplier sourcing packaging for the Scotch whisky industry. Jonathan adds: “I am one of those sad people who is frequently more interested in the packaging than the contents of the bottle. I am, shamefully for a Scotsman, someone whose whisky palate has yet to mature; so I aim to practice this over the coming years so I can become a true whisky connoisseur.”

Jonathan advised he joined the company because: “Charpak has an esteemed and distinguished reputation for design and innovation, and I believe that innovation is key to bring to the attention of the Scottish drinks industry.  

“With packaging being fundamental in the battle of the brands and competing for shelf space, Charpak has over 30 years of expertise to help maximise shelf space and display, and to package world-renowned brands to their fullest potential. The company’s rich heritage means we are well placed to become the Drinks Industries’ sustainable packaging supplier of choice.” 

Paul Smith, managing director states: “We are delighted to welcome Jonathan and his incredible talents to Charpak. When we discovered he was instrumental in bringing one of the early pioneering Bag for Life initiatives to UK retail it showcased perfectly his insight and intelligence led approach to finding answers to complex challenges.”

Paul adds: “We are looking forward to achieving further success in Scotland with Jonathan very much at the helm, supporting our existing clients and introducing new clients; where we can best service their packaging needs.”  

Both Charpak and Jonathan advise: “We are excited for the journey ahead.”
