Meet the Board: Jeff Burke

Our newest Blog series we will be focusing on our hard working NJPEC Board Members. Each of these members volunteers their time to help keep this organization going. Our hope in this series is that you’ll learn a little more about who they are!

Jeff Burke, Our Golf Co-Chair and Sponsorship Co-Chair

How long have you been active on the NJPEC Board: Ray Feghhi working for DiMaio Packaging invited me to a Package of the year event in 1999 and I never looked back. I started becoming active soon after becoming a member in 2000.

Where do you work and what is your role there? Commercial Application Development Engineer at Primex Plastics

What is your favorite NJPEC Event & Why? Well it’s no surprise, my favorite is Package of the Year: It allows our industry to come together to share in the successes that we have enjoyed throughout the past year. It gives us the opportunity to recognize the unique supply chains that come together to establish a successful package.

What is your favorite part of being in the packaging industry? It’s the understanding that packaging continues to evolve and it’s the new technologies and package developments that will continue to foster creative growth in the packaging industry.

Tell us something about yourself that no one knows? Before getting involved in the plastics and packaging industry, I studied photography and took thousands of black & white photographs enjoying the infinite shades of gray.
