When Queens Group was acquired by Shorewood Packaging in 1998, he was named senior vice president. In that role, he became intimately involved in the acquisition and integration of numerous specialty packaging businesses. Following the acquisition of Shorewood by International Paper, Kaltman served as senior vice president of the home entertainment packaging division until he joined MPS, as executive vice president and COO. He was named president in August 2007 and was given responsibility for the global branded consumer market in February 2014.
