PPC promotes Leonczyk to Executive Director and VP

The Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) has promoted Emily Leonczyk to Executive Director and Vice President.

A leader with a strong business and nonprofit association management career — including five years in the paperboard industry — Leonczyk will oversee PPC’s operations while facilitating stakeholder collaboration and driving strategic initiatives.

Emily Leonczyk addresses the audience at PPC’s recent Fall Meeting and Leadership Conference.

Leonczyk has served PPC since 2018, first as Director of Marketing and Communications followed by a promotion to Director of Operations. Notably, her role in overseeing the 2018 rebrand of PPC underscores her contribution to shaping a modern-day vision for the organization. Leonczyk was also crucial in guiding PPC through the COVID-19 pandemic, including the successful transition to virtual events and the subsequential resurgence of in-person engagement to pre-COVID numbers.

“I am honored to serve as the Executive Director and Vice President of PPC, and grateful to the entire PPC community for their support and trust,” said Leonczyk. “It’s my commitment to listen and respond to the needs of our members and empower our passionate and hardworking team to elevate the industry for the benefit of all.”

She concluded, “As a woman in a leadership role, I feel a deep responsibility to empower and support other women in the industry. Collaborating closely with Laura and other women leaders, we aim to inspire positive change and drive the industry forward.”
