As Director Market Intelligence at Iggesund Paperboard, Jens Rehr is responsible for keeping abreast of current developments and likely trends in the global packaging market, with a focus on paperboard. He is especially interested in exploring the untapped potential of this renewable resource by means of uncommon or innovative uses.
He joined Iggesund Paperboard and the paperboard industry in 2009. During the same year, he became a member of CEPI Cartonboard’s statistical committee and two years later, Jens became a board member of Pro Carton Nederland until it was reincorporated as Vouwkarton Platform Nederland.
Jens was motivated to join Iggesund Paperboard by the opportunity to work for a sustainability leader, who produces high quality products in Europe for an international market. Moreover, given that his team is spread over two countries, he gets to enjoy both Swedish nature and Amsterdam city life.
Before joining the paper industry, Jens worked in the IT, aviation and credit insurance industry across various European countries. He holds a MBA with honours from EDHEC/Theseus in Nice and a degree in Business Informatics from the Nordakademie in Elmshorn.
