This week, we caught up with The BoxMaker’s Structural Design Manager – and Certified Packaging Professional – Peter Stalham.
What exactly is a Certified Packaging Professional, you ask? Here’s Peter, to shed some light on this inspiring accomplishment:
What does it mean, to be a Certified Packaging Professional?
Candidates achieve the Certified Packaging Professional (CPP) designation when they demonstrate significant industry expertise and experience, which is measured through a flexible applicant testing process.
What does having a CPP on The BoxMaker team mean for our clients?
The packaging industry recognizes the CPP designation as a commitment to excellence in the packaging profession. Our clients can have peace of mind knowing that The BoxMaker is dedicated to industry expertise on their behalf.
How did the CPP application process challenge and benefit you as a BoxMaker coworker?
The BoxMaker really wants every coworker to take advantage of opportunities to grow personally and professionally. My designation also helps and encourages me to keep up with the latest packaging trends and technology, which can then instill confidence in the people you work with on a daily basis.
What are some important lessons you’ve learned since you’ve begun your career in packaging design?
It was a unique career choice. In my role as Packaging Design Manager, I have to be as knowledgeable in all aspects of packaging as I am in design, from marketing to technical skill to business. Just like society, packaging is always in a state of change. Being well-informed helps me adapt to these changes.
Thank you, Peter, for your commitment to packaging expertise, and to The BoxMaker’s client experience! We want to see The BoxMaker coworkers succeed, because we believe that by creating meaningful client experiences through innovation, entrepreneurship, and integrated products and services, we can add value and become an integral part of each client’s own team. Today, four BoxMaker coworkers have achieved their Packaging Professional Certifications!
