CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA, OCTOBER 31, 2018 — The Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) has just announced the newest members of its Executive Committee, an advisory group elected from the broader membership. Chris Lancette, Packaging Sustainability and Regulatory Compliance Manager, 3M; Cherish Changala, Vice President of Corporate Marketing & Communications, Revolution; and Paul Nowak, Senior Director of Sales Strategy & Business Development, Quad Packaging have each been elected to serve a three-year term on the SPC Executive Committee.

Executive Committee members provide perspective and expertise on industry trends, act as ambassadors for the SPC, and provide strategic guidance on issues related to the SPC including its goals and activities.

Elections are held once a year in the fall and Executive Committee members serve three-year terms.

The three newly-elected members are replacing the departing Executive Committee members Kim Carswell of Target, Chris Davidson of WestRock, and Liza Blackwell, of LEGO Group.  

“We warmly welcome Chris, Cherish, and Paul to the Executive Committee, and we look forward to having their valuable expertise and perspectives,” said Nina Goodrich, Director of the SPC, and Executive Director of GreenBlue. “In the past three years, we have doubled our membership and as we continue to grow, their expertise will be invaluable to guiding our work in the years to come.”
