Sandy Hook, Conn. - Curtis Packaging, a leading producer of luxury packaging and a recognized industry leader in sustainability, is pleased to congratulate president and CEO, Don Droppo, Jr., for his selection in Connecticut Magazine’s “40 Under 40.” Droppo was chosen from a group of Connecticut’s most promising young leaders compiled through a competitive nomination process.
“It is an honor to have been selected to stand alongside this inspiring group,” said Droppo. “It is truly gratifying to be recognized for making a positive contribution to the state of Connecticut and I look forward to furthering Curtis Packaging’s long-standing commitment to socially responsible corporate citizenship.”
Because of Droppo’s leadership, Curtis Packaging is “a model for other small-to-midsized manufacturers here in Connecticut and nationally,” said John Rathgeber, president and CEO of the Connecticut Business & Industry Association.
