At Skymark Packaging International Ltd, we pride ourselves on our passionate team members who go above and beyond in driving our mission to provide innovative, forward-thinking flexible packaging solutions. Today, we are exceptionally proud to announce that our Compliance & Accreditations Manager, Shaine Gill-Ohrt, is a finalist in the Unsung Hero Category for the Plastics Industry Awards 2023.

What Makes Shaine an ‘Unsung Hero’?

Shaine Gill-Ohrt has been an integral part of Skymark Packaging International Ltd for over 11 years, serving as our Compliance and Accreditations Manager. In a role that demands unparalleled diligence and attention to detail, Shaine never fails to deliver. He oversees a multi-faceted range of responsibilities, from managing ISO 9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 accreditations to leading initiatives in waste management and energy reduction. As the designated Hygiene Manager, he also shoulders the responsibility for all customer site audits.

Beyond the checklist of duties, Shaine has mastered the art of meticulous questionnaire and audit management, and managing and ensuring compliance to Extended Producer Responsibility, PRN, Climate Change Levy and Plastic Packaging Tax – tasks that many might find overwhelming but are critical to our operations.

Although his work often goes on behind the scenes, the entire team deeply values his contributions. His effort serves as the backbone of our compliance and quality assurance, recently culminating in Skymark achieving its BRC AA+ rating and being awarded a Silver Medal by Ecovadis. Shaine is the unsung hero who turns the cogs that keep our compliance machine running smoothly.
