Scott Kibler to Lead New Solid Fiber & Technical Products Line at Badger Paperboard

Badger Paperboard is pleased to announce that Scott Kibler has joined the company as Vice President of Solid Fiber & Technical Products. 

Scott comes to Badger with 30+ years of packaging experience in markets like food and beverage, industrial, and packaging distribution. He will head up Badger’s new Solid Fiber & Technical Products line, using his extensive knowledge of solid fiber to grow this market and offer chipboard, cornerboard, and specialty crate solutions to customers.

Scott is a graduate of Michigan State University, where he obtained a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Packaging. He joined Badger Paperboard following 22 years with International Paper, where he advanced from Business Development Manager of the Solid Fiber Division to Sales Manager of the Solid Fiber Division to Regional Sales Manager for North American Container. There, he was responsible for three corrugated box manufacturing facilities totaling more than $275 million in sales. He ranked second in the sales organization for revenue growth and profitability.

Jacob Smiley, President of Badger Paperboard, said, “Scott brings a valuable perspective to Badger, having served in roles as a packaging customer, provider, and distributor. He’s one of the best minds in the solid fiber market, and we’re lucky to have him grow our new line of products.”
