Macaran Printed Products, a third-generation supplier of high-quality label and packaging products, appoints Tom Sargent as president. Nick VanAlstine will remain the CEO.

VanAlstine joined the family business in 1974 and was named president and CEO, succeeding his father Bill VanAlstine, in 1992. Under his leadership, Macaran has grown to become an industry-leader, providing label and packaging products to some of the world’s best known, mid-market brands.

Sargent joined Macaran in 2020 bringing more than 30 years of experience and leadership success in the flexible packaging and label-printing industry. He has been promoted from executive vice president to president.

During his time with Macaran, Sargent worked closely with Mr. VanAlstine gaining valuable insight into the financial, business and operations of the company. More recently, Sargent has led the development of an overarching growth strategy currently being implemented across the enterprise.

‘Long-term leadership succession has been an important area of focus since my father took over for my grandfather in 1952,’ said Nick VanAlstine.  ‘Facilitating a smooth and thoughtful transition will ensure our employee-owned company continues to grow and prosper.’

In his new role as president, Sargent will oversee the executive management team including finance, sales and operations. He will be responsible for setting the vision and mission of the company, ensuring financial stability and continued growth. He will also be appointed to the board of directors.

‘This change in leadership marks the first time in our history a VanAlstine has not been president of Macaran. I can attest to the vision and passion Tom brings to the company, and have full confidence he is uniquely qualified to lead Macaran moving forward,’ VanAlstine commented.

As CEO, VanAlstine will retain his corporate leadership role and remain chairman of the board of directors.
