There has never been a more pivotal time in the plastics and chemicals industries when it comes to sustainability. The industry is under immense pressure from consumers and companies alike to innovate at an astonishing rate, providing a new, circular economy in packaging materials.


If you are a proven, independent sales leader and market-development expert with substantial experience in the Packaging sector, you will excel in this position. The role will see you taking responsibility for all sales in South East Asia (focusing on key markets like Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia). This is a critical hire with the goal of supporting the international expansion of a ground-breaking polymer technology business through high-level networking, converter partnerships and Brand Owner influence. The successful candidate will be tasked with delivering exponential growth on a global basis across multiple different consumer accounts in Food & Beverage and Consumer Goods packaging segments.


This London-based polymer technology business are changing the plastic pollution landscape through their proprietary biodegradation system, allowing plastic pollution to completely break down in the natural environment. This is a ground-breaking technology which has the potential to alter the plastic sustainability landscape forever. They are searching for an experienced Regional Sales Leader to take charge of growing sales with some of the most prominent international Brands. The position is a key hire in the company’s plan to accelerate growth towards £100m, and will require a hands-on, entrepreneurial individual who understands the complexity of the packaging and plastics value chain. You should be home-based in Singapore, with regular travel (50-60%). Mandarin language skills are extremely desirable.


This role requires an individual that has a strong commercial presence in front of high-level customers at large Brand Owner companies in the areas of Food, Beverage and general FMCG. You must have a complete understanding of the sales cycle from lead to cash, across the B2B value chain of Packaging, but with knowledge of raw materials/additives also being advantageous. The Head of Sales is a multi-faceted position where you will be tasked not only with closing deals, but managing client relationships, playing an active role in strategic market development, and marketing. In order to be truly successful in this position you must have a solid technical understanding of the plastic packaging market and experience selling to global Brand Owners. You must identify, evaluate and aggressively pursue leads in the company’s most developed region, resulting in multi-million GBP deals.


If you are a capable and proven regional or global salesperson in the packaging or plastics sector, with experience developing and implementing an international commercial strategy, then this opportunity could be a great fit.


The successful applicant will be compensated well for their performance and have the full support of the business. Please get in touch at for a confidential discussion.
