June’s Associate Spotlight Series


Alberto Padilla Associate Spotlight June 2024

Alberto Padilla started his Printpack career journey over 34 years ago, working as a Roll-Changer in Los Angeles, CA. A few months later he became a machine operator, and due to his skills, was invited to move to North Carolina. He was later promoted to supervisor, and today he is the Performance Systems Manager at Printpack Medical in Marshall. He has had several professional growth opportunities at Printpack throughout the years.

Born and raised in Mexico City, Alberto came to the US when he was 18. Passionate about English, he moved to the US to learn the language but went way beyond that. Alberto is also a talented cook. He owned a Mexican restaurant for a few years, but when the business was not going well, he was invited to rejoin Printpack.
