ETA appoints new vice chairman

Fanis Papakostas has been appointed vice chairman of ETS, the European Tissue Association. He will serve until June 2017. With Roberto Berardi due to step down as chairman in June 2017, Papakostas will be a strong candidate to succeed him in the role.

A specialist in tissue, Papakostas has spent 30 years in professional management and consulting, holding senior roles with Unilever, Beiersdorf, and Kimberly-Clark. He also has a deep knowledge of detergents and cosmetics. His career was built via the marketing and sales paths but with a good supply chain and finance cross functional experience, coupled with the right exposure on administration and legal corporate matters.

“I am delighted to welcome Fanis as vice chairman,” said ETS chairman, Roberto Berardi. “He has an unrivalled knowledge of our industry and business and I look forward to working alongside him over the next 12 months in realising further opportunities for our sector.”

Fanis Papakostas said: “ETS undertakes important work in showcasing the benefits of paper and I look forward to continuing to promote these messages. My activities will aim to add value to what ETS delivers to its member companies, to their customers, and, of course, to the tissue paper product users."
