Barry Read - PITA CEO

February 2024

CPI is saddened to learn of the unexpected sudden death of Barry Read, CEO of the Paper Industry Technical Association (PITA). Barry had spent over 40 years in the Paper Industry and was a huge advocate in promoting the industry beyond the UK.

Barry worked with many colleagues within CPI, and indeed the Paper Industry, and his charismatic larger-than-life character will be missed by all those that knew him.
Our condolences go out to both his friends and family.
