Valpak, the UK’s largest compliance scheme, has announced former commercial director of CBRE Group, Kieran Roche, as its director of new business.

Valpak, which is part of the Reconomy group, says Roche brings a track record in growing business in a customer friendly way that will build upon the strengths of the existing team.

Roche said: “Valpak is well-known for reliability and quality of service when it comes to compliance, but in recent years the team has developed a range of services that help customers address challenges across the whole packaging supply chain. We anticipate demand for these value-added services to escalate in light of the changes to producer responsibility legislation, and it is our ambition to support our customers in a manner that leaves them healthier.”

Roche concluded: “It’s already clear that the Valpak team are an incredibly passionate, knowledgeable group of people. With the Reconomy acquisition and our growing suite of services, we’re providing a more end-to-end service, and we’ll be able to share the benefits with our clients over the coming months.”

Valpak is the largest environmental compliance scheme in the UK and works with Sainsbury’s, ASOS, and Miele, and manages compliance for more than 4,000 businesses.
