The Foodservice Packaging Institute is looking for a new president after Lynn Dyer announced she would be leaving the association this fall.
Dyer has been with the Falls Church, Virginia-based FPI for more than 20 years. She helped to quadruple its membership, amplified FPI as the voice of the foodservice packaging industry and guided the industry’s environmental stewardship efforts.
“Lynn has been a remarkable leader during her two decades of service to FPI,” says FPI Chairman John Ulowetz, SVP-foodservice at Berry Global. “Her strategic thinking and deep understanding of the foodservice packaging industry has brought awareness to our industry and advanced the association toward new initiatives, like increased recovery efforts and development of valuable resources for our members.”
Prior to joining FPI in 1998, Dyer worked with the European Food Service & Packaging Association (now Pack2Go Europe) in Brussels, Belgium.
“Throughout my career, I have always been—and will continue to be—very passionate about foodservice packaging,” she said. “While I am sad to leave FPI, I am extremely proud of all that I have accomplished at FPI and the position in which I am leaving the association.”
In November, Dyer will be joining FPI member company Pactiv as VP of sustainability.
The search for FPI’s next president has started, with resumes being accepted until Friday, Sept. 6.
