Novus Holdings has announced the appointment of Tim Stewart, previously managing director of ITB Plastics since 1993, to the position of group executive: packaging; as well as the promotion of Trevor Davies from operations director to managing director of ITB Plastics.
‘Stewart has a wealth of knowledge in the packaging industry and is well connected with all major industry role players, with particularly strong relationships with customer and suppliers. In his new position, he will lead the team that looks after all packaging aspects within the Novus Holdings Group, encompassing both Paarl Labels and ITB Plastics,’ said Keith Vroon, Novus Holdings Group CEO. He added that Stewart’s focus will be on expanding the group’s packaging and label interests organically and by acquisition.
Davies held the position of operations director at ITB Plastics since 2007, which saw him overseeing many different functions including production, procurement, planning, maintenance and despatch.
‘With more than 10 years’ experience at ITB Plastics, Davies was the worthy successor to take over from Stewart. We look forward to their continued contribution to the group’s success and its diversification strategy,’ concluded Vroon.
