David Scheible
President and CEO
Graphic Packaging Holding Company

When David Scheible assumed the role of President and CEO of Graphic Packaging Holding Company, the company served a number of customers across the breadth of the consumer products industry. Under his leadership, however, the company strategically realigned itself, tethering its operations to the food and beverage market and strengthening its market share.

Highly fragmented at the time, the food and beverage market proved challenging to any company seeking to increase its footprint. But Graphic Packaging successfully acquired several companies, substantially expanding its presence. It did so in a manner that enabled it to optimize production through its mills, increase profitability and generate strong cash flows to support continued expansion and innovation.

Today, Graphic Packaging is a leading provider of packaging solutions to some of the most widely recognized companies and well-known brands.
