Atlas-backed Iconex appoints CEO

Atlas Holdings portfolio company Iconex has appointed Craig Gunckel as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Georgia-based business solutions provider.

Gunckel, who most recently served as President of Enterprise Solutions and Merchandising Displays at WestRock, brings over two decades of experience in the paper and packaging sectors.
 
Iconex invented the paper receipt over a century ago and continues to be an industry leader in receipts today. Operating five manufacturing facilities around the world, Iconex also connects people and goods through its rapidly growing “best in class” labelling and tracking technology.
 
Michael Sher, Principal of Atlas Holdings, says: “We are extremely excited that Craig Gunckel has agreed to join our team and serve as Iconex’ next Chief Executive Officer. For over twenty years, Craig held a number of senior leadership positions at RockTenn, which ultimately merged with MeadWestvaco to form West Rock. He has demonstrated expertise in developing and executing growth strategies and played a significant role in WestRock’s success. He’s a proven leader, and someone who is passionate about innovation and focused on delivering bottom-line results.
 
“Craig is widely respected for his commitment to excellence and to good community stewardship. He’s an ideal person to lead Iconex as we write the next great chapter in the storied history of the company.”
 
Gunckel says: “Few businesses can say they invented a product used by millions of people each day; even fewer can say they have sustained that level of market leadership for over a century. Iconex is one of those businesses. I am very excited to join my new colleagues in building an even brighter future for the company.
 
“We will continue to innovate, to deliver superior service to our customers and ensure that our employees are safe in their workplace.”
