A new milestone for MCC Verstraete
Since Verstraete IML was founded in 1974, it has always been led by Verstraete family members. In 2017, the company became part of Multi-Color Corporation. Along with this changeover, a lot of new market opportunities, challenges and partnerships came up. Now that the company is put on rails within MCC and it is ready for a bright future under the MCC flag, Managing Directors Koen and Griet Verstraete feel the time is right to pass on the torch.
From September 1st 2020, Peter Grugeon will be in charge of the daily operations, supported by a committed management team.
The right person at the right time
"It's with great pride that we hand over the general management of the company to Peter Grugeon," says Koen Verstraete. "As with many of the decisions we made over the past few years, we not only chose Peter based on reason, but also from a gut feeling. Next to his broad experience and credentials, he has this certain energy and drive that truly fit our company. We're convinced he is the right person, at the right time."
Who is Peter Grugeon?
Peter (°1975) has a master’s degree in bio-engineering. He’s a people oriented industry executive with broad international experience. Throughout his career, he gained a strong operational background and commercial experience as managing director both in Belgium and the US. Peter is convinced that motivated people make all the difference!
As the new Managing Director at MCC Verstraete, he will lead the IML business unit within Multi-Color Corporation and represent the company in MCC's Global Executive Management.
