Tetra Pak has appointed Boris Munster as Managing Director of its Oceania business.
In his new role, Mr Munster will be responsible for Tetra Pak’s business operations in Australia and New Zealand, succeeding Andrew Pooch who stepped down to retire after nearly 35 years of service to the company.
Mr Munster brings extensive global commercial experience in the food and beverage and retail industry, having worked across multiple regions in Europe and North America.
Inspired by Tetra Pak’s purpose of driving sustainability and commitment to making food safe and available everywhere, Mr Munster joined Tetra Pak 15 years ago as a Retail Account Manager in Belgium. Since then, he has held various roles within the company, including mostly recently as Key Account Director for Contract Manufacturing in the US and Canada.
Mr Pooch says Mr Munster brings a strong commercial acumen and a broad set of knowledge from his experience working in Europe and North America, making him an outstanding candidate for the role.
“I’m confident that his hunger for success – combined with his years of industry expertise – will be invaluable in bringing the next chapter of growth at Tetra Pak in Oceania,” he says.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Munster says he’s incredibly honoured to be given the opportunity to build on the great foundation set up by Mr Pooch.
“I’m thrilled to take on this role and lead our amazing team at Tetra Pak Oceania to deliver innovative packaging and processing solutions for our customers and help them advance their sustainability goals by delivering solutions that can decarbonise the food industry,” he says.
“Oceania is well poised for its next chapter of growth, and I look forward to working with the team to take the business to new heights.”
In his new role, Mr Munster will be based in Melbourne.
