Luciana Pellegrino is the new President of WPO

The General Manager of ABRE (Brazilian Packaging Association), Luciana Pellegrino, has now taken on the role as President of WPO (World Packaging Organisation), during the recent Board Meeting in Cape Town, South Africa.

Pellegrino (pictured left) is the first woman to assume this position in the Organisation; she was elected in May in a meeting during interpack. She will replace Pierre Pienaar that has been President of WPO for two consecutive terms, the first began in 2018.

“It is a great honour to be elected by WPO Board as President,” said Pellegrino. “In the last 20 years, I have worked to support and strengthen WPO, because I believe this organisation has an important role and a positive impact in the global packaging community. We will continue all the well succeeded projects and actions conducted by Pienaar in the last years and go beyond.”
