David Ekberg has held the role of acting head of packaging solutions since 6 December 2019. Previously he was SVP, head of Business Unit Corrugated Nordics in the division. Before joining Stora Enso in 2017, he held several leadership positions at Climeon and Ericsson.

Stora Enso’s president and CEO Annica Bresky said, "David Ekberg is a respected business leader with a proven track record of accelerating innovation and growth. David’s experience stretches from executive positions in large organisations to start-ups. At Stora Enso, David has demonstrated speed, agility and great leadership skills.”

Commenting on the new role, Ekberg said, “I am truly excited to take on this role to accelerate our packaging solutions business. Together with our customers and partners we will bring even more efficient and innovative renewable packaging solutions to the market. By replacing plastics and reducing CO2 emissions we can do good for the planet and create superior shareholder value,”

As of 1 January 2020, Stora Enso merged its containerboard business with the Consumer Board division, creating a new Packaging Materials division. The remaining business in Packaging Solutions, together with the recently created Formed Fiber unit, constitute a more focused Packaging Solutions division.
