While Ashwani Sharma has been steering Asepto, UFlex Group’s aseptic liquid packaging business, as President and CEO for only six years, his experience in the industry spans decades. Coming from a modest background, Ashwani says his journey to UFlex has been, to put it humbly, interesting.

He started out in the 1990s at India’s largest paper company, BILT, and from there his career just exploded. Ashwani went on to work in a number of senior leadership positions for paper companies around the world, providing him with enriching global exposure, including in Europe as CEO and Chairman of the Board for Horizon Pulp and Paper; in the US as Business Head at Asia Pulp & Paper (APP); and in Asia as CEO and Senior President at Century Pulp & Paper, and Managing Director of APP.
