PPC Welcomes Laura Brodie of Burt Rigid Box as Board Chair, Introduces 2023 Strategic Initiatives

The Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) recently welcomed the new Chair of its Board of Directors, Laura Brodie, President of Burt Rigid Box. With 14 years of experience in the paperboard packaging industry, she’s served on PPC’s Board of Directors since 2011 and is an owner and senior manager at Burt, a recognized industry leader in luxury rigid box packaging. Brodie brings deep industry experience to help her lead the North American association for paperboard packaging manufacturers over the next two years. 

During the induction ceremony at PPC’s recent Fall Meeting, Brodie laid out her strategic direction for the association for 2023 and beyond. 

“Providing growth and development opportunities for new and upcoming leaders in our member organizations via PPC is a top priority,” Brodie said.  

Second, Brodie seeks to capitalize on PPC’s dynamic communities of interest and committees by connecting them more explicitly with the Executive Committee and Board to drive the association’s vision and value.

In recent years, PPC has proven successful in offering vibrant communities of interest that include Women in Leadership, New Generation Leaders, Rigid Box Manufacturers, Design & Innovation, and University Students & Teachers. For Brodie, it’s time to leverage these communities in a more expansive way to not only engage all PPC members, but to also impact the industry at large.  

Ultimately, Brodie aims to sustain and develop a more robust member base that feels appreciated and valued. 

A longtime resident of New York City, Laura has held leadership positions within her Manhattan and upstate New York communities. Originally from Buffalo, NY, she serves as the Board Chair of Starring Buffalo, Inc., a non-profit theater production company she co-founded in 2017. A graduate of Princeton University, she is also a past member of the Graduate Board of Directors for the Princeton Tower Club.
