ICPF has announced that BW Papersystems has become its most recent Corporate Partner by making a financial pledge to support the foundation’s educational and student outreach initiatives.

“BW Papersystems has been well aware of ICPF’s successful work with universities and students across the country for a long time,” said Neal McConnellogue, president of BW Papersystems. “Through ICPF, hundreds of students annually learn about corrugated packaging careers. We plan to immediately begin using ICPF’s Career Portal and other resources to acquire entry-level engineers and programmers. Already, we have seen several potential matches in the portal’s Résumé Bank.”

ICPF’s Chair, Jeff Chalovich of WestRock, welcomed BW Papersystems as an ICPF Corporate Partner and thanked Neal for the corporation’s pledge. “For six or seven years, BW Papersystems has supported ICPF through serving as a sponsor and participant in the annual Holiday Weekend in New York. During a dinner meeting recently with Neal and his team in Indianapolis, I was pleased to learn that BW Papersystems wished to take the next step of making a financial pledge commitment to become a formal ICPF Corporate Partner.”

ICPF Vice Chair Andy Pierson added that “BW Papersystems has been a longtime player in the corrugated packaging industry and will be a great addition to ICPF’s corporate partnership. I initially approached Miles Fletcher and Neal knowing that an ICPF corporate partnership would be a great fit for them and for our education foundation.”
