Inaugural CEO appointed at Recorp NZ

Can manufacturer Recorp has appointed Bruce Parton as its inaugural CEO, as the company prepares for its “state-of-the-art” South Auckland facility to open in early September 2024.

The company says Parton joins it from his previous role as CEO, House of Travel, where he guided the business through the challenges of the Covid pandemic.

Prior to that he had a long career with Air New Zealand including 15 years on the executive team, first as GM short haul airlines under Rob Fyfe, and later as chief operating officer under Christopher Luxon.

He also has years of experience in the food processing industry with roles at Coca-Cola in the UK and Tegal Foods.

Recorp chairman Rob Fyfe says in a statement that Parton brings “excellent operational, commercial and leadership experience to compliment the strong industry experience on Recorp’s leadership team”.

Parton says the firm’s team of New Zealand investors, experienced can makers and innovators will be “offering customers of all sizes flexible, innovative new can options, low minimum order quantities and accelerated new product development timelines”.

He says the company is “passionate about the potential of aluminium, its infinite recyclability and its role in reducing our environmental footprint”.

In addition to Parton, Recorp’s leadership team consists of beverage container specialists including general manager Steve Lacey and plant manager Grant Nicholson.
