Arjen was ‘very happy and doing well’ and had just had his first child when, between 2009 – 2011 his father died from pancreatic cancer, his mother from lung cancer and his brother from suicide. But, his decision to join the company was still far from clear-cut.
Arjen says: “Of course, I knew it was a successful (£18 million) well-run business with good, hard-working people. But it was a typical, traditional ‘inward-looking’ family firm, in a less-than-dynamic sector.”
Arjen officially joined Invopak in January 2011.
Under Arjen Cooper-Rolfe, Invopak has been transformed into the dynamic leader of its sector and a beacon of best practise in employee involvement and customer care.
And, fittingly for the company that started a plastic packaging revolution, Invopak is also leading the way towards a sustainable future for the industry.
Arjen Cooper-Rolfe is now nurturing his teams into a new era under the banner of Involvement, with a series of exciting new Invo brands on the launchpad – all infused with the original ‘we-can-do-it’ Invopak spirit.
