McAllen, Texas-based Fox Packaging has promoted Lucas Fox to director of operations. In his new role, Fox will oversee production activity across all operation departments including production, shipping and receiving, engineering, printing, maintenance and more.
Since joining Fox Packaging in 2014, Fox has proven his ability to develop and improve efficiencies within the company through various roles, the company says. As superintendent of maintenance, he managed the production of equipment and oversaw facility maintenance until his promotion to production manager in 2018. Within that role, Fox built a new department reflective of the needs and goals of the executive board. As director of operations, Fox will work alongside the board to continue operational growth and productivity.
“Lucas has been a phenomenal member of our management team and has brought considerable value to our decision-making,” said Keith Fox, president of Fox Packaging. “This promotion recognizes his exceptional leadership ability and dedication to driving key strategies that will be reflected in the company’s growth.”
During his tenure, Fox spent significant time engaging and training in different departments. He gained a holistic understanding of the company while working closely with his father, Keith Fox, and grandfather, Kenneth Fox, who founded the company more than 50 years ago.
“I am honored to further contribute to Fox Packaging by providing strategic, operational and long-term changes that will be utilized to serve our customers,” said Fox. “I aim to serve our family business through operational integrity to drive our company toward greater excellence. As leaders in the flexible packaging industry, and as part of the third generation of Fox Packaging, we are invested in being a continued solution for many years to come.”
Fox Packaging is family-owned and operated, developing and distributing flexible packaging solutions for fresh produce packers and shippers throughout North America and Latin America.
