Alex Noake has been named the new managing director of Tri-Star after the founders announced they were stepping down.

Kevin Curran and Kevin Prosser founded Tri-Star Packaging in 1991. Both founders are stepping down to persue other interests enabling Noake to move from his previous role of commercial director and general manager to the new managing director.

Noake will officially take over the new role on 1 August. He had worked in a number of commercial and financial roles before joining Tri-Star in May 2017. Tri-Star offers packaging and products for the food-to-go, catering and bakery sectors.

Noake said: “It is a very challenging time across the industry, not least due to problems on the high street and the pressures facing the casual dining and grab-and-go sectors in particular.

“However, within every challenge lies opportunity and for Tri-Star we are always looking to the next big innovation to develop our business and help our customers reduce their environmental footprint and improve profitability.”

The previous managing director was Curran who will remain in the industry as a ‘thought-leader’ and he will continue to work closely with Tri-Star.

Noake added: “Both Kevins have been devoted business leaders and tremendous mentors from sales, commercial and operational perspectives. I am looking forward to applying all the learnings from these two pioneers and to continue to project their energies and drive into the future of the business.”
