Change in Comexi’s management
November 10, 2023
Continuing with the generational transition plan, the property and the Board of Directors have decided that next January 1, 2024 Pau Xifra will assume the position of General Manager of Comexi, taking over from Diego Hervás, who will continue to collaborate as an advisor to the Strategy Committee.
Diego Hervás joined Comexi five years ago as an Independent Board Member and assumed the position of CEO of the group in 2019. In these years he has managed to strengthen Comexi’s position in the flexible packaging sector, achieving very positive results both in terms of sales and financial results.
Pau Xifra, after a long career in strategic consulting, joined the Board of Comexi in 2018, and the management team two years ago, assuming the position of Director of Strategy, from which he has led the progress in the company’s strategy and transformation projects
Manel Xifra, President of Comexi, highlights the good work done by Diego Hervás and the management team: “I would like to thank him for his dedication and leadership capacity to lead Comexi to the good situation it is in today, significantly improving profitability and results in recent years. I would also like to highlight his generosity and collaboration in this handover process. These are exciting times: next year we will be 70 years old, an important milestone in our long history. We are living in times of great change, we have all experienced it first hand in recent years and we believe it is a good thing that a new generation, with new ideas and ways of doing things, is taking over the leadership of the organization to face these challenges and achieve even more ambitious goals”.
“I am very grateful to the Board and the property for the trust they have placed in me. I am also thankful to Diego for the good work he has done and for facilitating this transition. We are starting a new chapter with a lot of strength, a great team and a clear strategy that is committed to innovation, excellence and sustainability, with customers at the centre of all our initiatives. We have all the ingredients to continue the current positive trajectory and achieve new successes”, says Pau Xifra.
This change in the General Management ensures the continuity of Comexi’s strategy, and the relationship with its customers and suppliers all over the world. The company is in a solid situation and with many future projects to continue making its purpose a reality, “Better packaging, Better world”.
