Telrol Group has named Jun Park as its new CEO, following Hoessein Hadaoui’s decision to step down from the position after 20-plus years at the company.
Park started working for Hansol Paper, former Jeonju Paper Company that was spun off of Samsung Group, in 1991. He has wide experience of overseas business including a 10-year working career as general manager of CK Fibres, a recycling company in Vancouver, Canada. He has also served as president of Hansol America, and as vice president for overseas sales at Hansol Paper in Korea. In 2014, he was appointed as CEO of Hansol Europe and moved to the CEO position of Schades and R&S in 2015. Now, he has additional responsibilities as the CEO of Telrol Group.
South Korea’s Hansol Paper acquired Dutch self-adhesive label producer Telrol Group in 2014 as part of a move into the European label market, as reported here.
Hadaoui confirmed his decision in a post on Telrol’s website, and explained: ‘After 20 years with full satisfaction, I have decided to leave the company as CEO of Telrol Group. As Europe’s number one in both self-adhesive labels and POS paper rolls, the group has the most solid and strongest portfolio to offer the market.
‘The next steps for the future will be more and deeper integration between Telrol, Schades and R&S, a strategy I have initiated, but where I do not see myself as being the right man. I have had many exiting and meaningful years since I joined in 1995. Twenty years of constant growth and profitability talks its own language and Telrol-Schades-R&S is the number one in its business. It has been a fantastic journey, having met many interesting people, having learned a lot all those years, all for which I am truly thankful.
‘To the most, I strongly believe I have set a pace for a European footprint. Telrol-Schades-R&S became an important part of the market and this combination will set its marks within the industry for the benefit of customers, employees and partners. No doubt this is the right combination, and more and deeper integration between the companies is a necessity, therefore I strongly recommended a new CEO for the group.’
Until November this year, Hadaoui will consult with Telrol Group and support a smooth transition.
