Graham Trickey has taken over as operations director at American-owned packaging giant WestRock Company after a four-and-a-half-year stint at Visy.

According to his LinkedIn profile, while at Visy, Trickey created "an environment of trust and stability that built leaders at all levels and fostered a culture of teamwork, with the results being predictable, reliable and dependable operations that exceeded customer expectations."

Prior to his move into packaging in 2014, Trickey worked for printers such as Dominion Print, Lilyfield Print and Hannanprint.

WestRock, based in Georgia, USA, purchased Australian packaging printer Hannapak from the Hanna family for $75m in 2017 following an 18-year partnership.
