Rusken Packaging Appoints David Ortiz as Vice President of Operations
Rusken Packaging is excited to announce the addition of David Ortiz to its leadership team. David joins as the Vice President of Operations, a new role for the organization, in which he will be responsible for ensuring Rusken’s daily business practices meet operational goals with maximum efficiency.
David has been in the corrugated industry for 27 years. Originally from Texas, he graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1990. After 5 years in the Air Force, David entered the corrugated world working for Gaylord Container, and later for Orange County Container Group (OCCG) where he served as a Senior Executive. In 2012, after the acquisition of OCCG by Smurfit Kappa Group, David was appointed VP of Operations for SKNA, where he led 10 operations.
In October of 2014 David founded Corrugated and Packaging LLC (C&P). As President, he created a $39mm sales success story by building a sheet plant and 2 foam operations in Tijuana and San Diego. In late 2018, C&P was sold to U.S. Corrugated, Inc. After a brief stint with Pratt Industries, David spent his last year with Hewlett Packard helping transform the industry via digital printing technology.
During David’s 27 years in the corrugated industry he also managed to earn an MBA/MSEL from University of San Diego.
Similar to Rusken’s own, David’s personal core values are honor, commitment, integrity, and family. David’s strong belief in Servant Leadership ensures that he will always prioritize serving the greater good and focus on putting the needs of his employees and customers first. When David is not peddling or making boxes, he enjoys spending time with his wife in the outdoors hiking, biking, and running.
