Our industry is driven by the people committed to making it better. Through positive periods and pandemics alike, we are grateful for the industry veterans who have dedicated years to leadership and mentorship. Paul Aliprando, who leads by example as the current Vice President of Business Development at SUN Automation Group, will begin a well-deserved retirement at the end of this year.
“Paul has been a great mentor and friend since I entered the industry in 2012,” said Greg Jones, Executive Vice President at SUN. “His joining SUN and becoming a member of our leadership team in 2016 is a highlight of my career and the contributions he has made to our organization are immeasurable. There is not an individual in our industry that I have greater admiration and respect for than Paul Aliprando. It has been a blessing to work alongside of him these last six years and to call him a close friend.”
With over 20 years of experience in the corrugated industry, Paul had the knowledge and expertise to empower customers and co-workers alike. He was driven to always find the best solutions in the market, and his character shined through with everyone he worked with. Paul was key in fostering a relationship between SUN and Domino North America, a partnership that showcases the benefits of digital converting solutions.
“I work with many partners in many markets, but SUN is the best partner I’ve ever worked with. I give a lot of that credit to working with Paul,” said Matt Condon, Business Development Manager at Domino. “From a personal point of view, he is a humble and knowledgeable man who brings a lot of trust to anyone he works with. He’s touched the corrugated industry in a really positive manner. I wish him the absolute best of luck in retirement.”
Paul’s positive and lasting impression on the corrugated industry is evident, both in what he’s accomplished and in the respect he receives from everyone he interacts with.
“Paul is a tireless champion when it comes to identifying root causes and developing solutions to improve industry and customer-specific converting challenges. His legacy will be his passion for the industry and for our customers,” said Chris Kyger, President at SUN. “It was never a job for Paul, he loved rolling up his sleeves and climbing over and under converting machinery. We wish Paul and Carol luck chasing the grandchildren.”
