Jim Porter Inducted into ICPF's Circle of Distinguished Leaders
During the recent 2018 spring meetings of FBA and the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) in Palm Beach, Florida, Jim Porter (WestRock President of Business Development and Latin America) was inducted as the 24th member of the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation's Circle of Distinguished Leaders. Through the assistance provided to ICPF by WestRock, the corrugated packaging industry and Jim's family, the lifetime recognition was received as a total surprise to Jim.
