Transcontinental Inc. has announced the appointment of Thomas Morin as president of TC Transcontinental Packaging. Based in Chicago, Morin will report to François Olivier, president and CEO of the corporation, and he will be part of the executive management committee. Since 2014, this position has been held by Brian Reid, who has been with the corporation for more than 25 years. Moving forward, Reid will dedicate his time exclusively to his role as president of TC Transcontinental Printing, Canada’s largest printer, a position he has held for more than 10 years.

As president of TC Transcontinental Packaging, Morin will have full profit and loss responsibility and provide leadership to the sector’s operations and plants around the world. He will be responsible for overseeing the expansion of the packaging business through organic sales growth and acquisitions, as well as managing investments.

“We are very pleased to welcome Thomas Morin as president of TC Transcontinental Packaging at a time where our company has already established itself as a North American leader in flexible packaging after only five years in this space,” said Olivier.

Morin brings more than 23 years of global packaging experience. Until June, he served as vice president of Southeast Asia for Amcor Flexible Packaging Asia Pacific in Singapore.

Reid played a critical role overseeing the packaging sector throughout its accelerated growth while ensuring that TC Transcontinental Printing remained the leader in an ever-evolving industry. FP
