“Miles’ experience in all aspects of financial reporting and accounting, strategic financial leadership and his acute understanding of today’s financial markets will prove extremely valuable as Exopack continues on a path of sustainable growth”, says Chris Ragot, Exopack’s Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to having Miles on our leadership team and leveraging his expertise.”

“This is an exciting time for me,” says McHugh. “Exopack is an established and admired company within the flexible packaging and coated films industries. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead this company’s financial functions and help Exopack maintain a course of continuing success.”
