The World Packaging Organization (WPO) recently announced that its board has unanimously elected Thomas L. Schneider, CPP, to a second term as president for 2015-2017. Schneider is currently president of Houston-based Industrial & Shippers Supply, a 60-year old value-added distributor of packaging and labeling systems and supplies.

“The opportunity to develop relationships with packaging leaders from around the world has been a unique experience,” said Schneider. “These relationships—with WPO and the Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) support—have provided exceptional opportunities to experience the latest technologies, materials, and package designs from every corner of the globe, not to mention the ability to work alongside many of those professionals responsible for such incredible packaging innovation that occurs worldwide.”
