While the hiring won’t mean any immediate change in the company’s

relationship with present PR firm Ludgate Communications, Esterman’s

arrival has longer-term implications for the company, which launched an

IPO last summer.



’We’re going to evaluate services needed based on our strategy going

forward,’ he said.



Esterman, who once worked on IR for Nalco Chemical, has already begun

contacting packaging industry analysts and portfolio managers. He will

report to an EVP who oversees legal affairs, human resources and

communications, and said he has no present plans to hire additional

internal IR staff.
