MRP Solutions, a provider of closures and other rigid packaging components to the health & wellness, food, and other specialty markets, announced the appointment of Mark Shafer as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and member of the Board of Directors. MRP Solutions is backed by Clearlake Capital Group, L.P.

Shafer has nearly 20 years of experience leading specialized industrial organizations, with the last nine years spent in the packaging sector, and has demonstrated a history of growth, operational achievement, strategy development and execution. Most recently, he served as Chief Customer Officer at Altium Packaging where he was responsible for leading the sales, customer service, quality, and select aspects of the supply chain functions.

“I am honored and grateful for the opportunity to lead MRP as we position the Company for the next phase of its evolution,” said Shafer. “MRP’s broad and customizable product offering, reputation for innovation, track record of quality and customer service, and focus on post-consumer recyclable solutions provide an appealing value proposition to customers. I am excited to join the Company and partner with MRP’s leadership team and employees, valued customers, and Clearlake to drive future growth in the business.” 

“Mark’s background and vision complement MRP’s customer-centric and innovation-oriented strategy, and his operating experience aligns well with Clearlake’s O.P.S.® approach, making him an ideal choice to lead the Company in the next stage of its development,” said José E. Feliciano, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, and Arta Tabaee, Partner and Managing Director, at Clearlake. 

Shafer succeeds outgoing CEO Jim Fitzgerald, who will transition to senior advisor. “I am thankful for the opportunity to have led MRP and believe the company is on the right track as we return to a normalized operating environment,” said Mr. Fitzgerald.  

“On behalf of Clearlake and MRP, we would like to thank Jim for his leadership,” said Dilshat Erkin, Principal at Clearlake. “Jim’s dedication, particularly during the market challenges presented over the past several years, has helped position MRP well for future growth.”
