Knox brings paper and cardboard specialists to the team

0

The Hamburg-based management and HR consultancy Knox has brought Rüdiger Nölleke, a real paper and packaging specialist, into its partner network. Since July, the industry expert, who was most recently plant manager of a cardboard box factory and who has previously worked for industry giants such as Sappi or Stora Enso, has been sharing his know-how gained from more than 40 years in the paper, cardboard and folding carton sectors.

“Soaking up 40 years of experience in the paper, cardboard and folding carton segments in one step is a big step forward, even for experts in the printing and packaging industry,” says Knox Managing Director Michael Dosch regarding his new partner in the Knox network.

This is because Rüdiger Nölleke has been active in the industry for an impressive 40 years: from his apprenticeship at Rhein Papier, through various sales and marketing activities, to tasks and responsibilities as plant manager or managing director, including in internationally active companies. His professional background includes Sappi, Stora Enso, Print-Pack GmbH & Co. KG, and Bergische Kartonagenfabrik Fritz Nießen, where Nölleke was plant manager until the end of June 2022.

“Printing and packaging has been our field of expertise for well over 10 years now, and we are very familiar with this sector when it comes to recruiting, supporting company acquisitions and sales, and also providing strategic advice to our customers,” explains Jens Freyler, Managing Director of M&A at Knox. This in-depth understanding of the industry in particular pays off – and is also incorporated into the online platform print-exchange, which specifically aims to bring together sellers of companies in the printing industry and suitable potential buyers (as reported on beyond-print.net).

Knox’s industry know-how is based not only on its own expertise, but also on the experience of the network of experts that has established itself around the consulting company with a range of focal points. In the future, Rüdiger Nölleke will expand Knox’s network not only with his specialist knowledge, but also with his contacts and experience in strategic consulting.

In the future, he will, for example, deal with issues relating to management tasks from sales control to plant management in the paper, cardboard, corrugated board and folding carton sectors, or he will also support branded companies in optimizing packaging purchasing or in switching to more sustainable solutions.

“We have already worked in all of these areas,” adds Andreas Frey, Senior Partner M&A, “and we consider the folding carton segment to be particularly exciting and want to become even more involved there in corporate transactions. In addition, we are noticing more and more that sustainability is also becoming increasingly important in the valuation by investors.”
