LINDAL Group has appointed Frederic Noel as the company’s chief operating officer.
Noel joins LINDAL following a 20-year tenure at global materials science and manufacturing company, Avery Dennison Corporation, where he led various manufacturing sites across Europe. Along with his role as vice president of operations and supply chain for Europe at MENA, and his most recent nomination of vice-president general manager for Graphics Solutions, Noel’s career has seen him drive major transformation in a range of settings.
LINDAL said Noel’s appointment represents the company’s commitment to further optimising and future-proofing its existing supply chain, providing an enhanced and more sustainable process that anticipates the developing needs of customers.
Taking up the role at the company’s headquarters in Hamburg, Germany, Noel will supervise all operational activities at LINDAL, including manufacturing, quality, and supply chain.
“I am honoured to be taking the lead on operational excellence at such a pivotal time within the company,” said Noel. “We will be working hard to build on LINDAL’s already outstanding reputation as leading aerosol packaging experts.”
Katharine Lilienthal, chairwoman of the board at LINDAL, commented: “Frederic’s [Noel] combined engineering, operational and business experience, along with his impressive record of implementing operational excellence globally, brings huge value to LINDAL at a time when we are working towards providing even greater supply chain efficiencies to further benefit our customers. We are delighted to have him on board.”
