L.A. Business Journal Gets the Scoop on Mr. Wilson

June 13, 2017


Grab your finest party hat, because we’ve got a lot to celebrate this week!

On June 16, our very own Mr. Wilson is turning 93 years old!  It’s been a long journey since Mr. Wilson founded Ernest Packaging Solutions along with his brother in 1946, and his path has been filled with some amazing moments (but more on that later this week!).

And we’re not the only ones taking notice of all that amazingness. In a matter of excellent timing, L.A. Business Journal recently put the spotlight back on Mr. Wilson in their “8 Over 80” feature!

In the interview, Mr. Wilson discusses how his role has changed since the birth of Ernest, and how he’s still on the forefront of the industry 71 years later. We don’t want to give everything away, but here’s one insight into what drives Mr. Wilson to work so hard after all these years:

“I love to help mentor our up-and-coming talent. The future is so bright.”

We couldn’t agree more.

You might remember Mr. Wilson also making headlines in 2012, discussing how Ernest is all about family and professional growth:

Stay tuned to the Ernest Buzz this week, because we’re celebrating all things Mr. Wilson as we close in on Father’s Day; we couldn’t be more proud to call him the father of Ernest Packaging Solutions.

Happy birthday, Mr. Wilson, and here’s to many more! Stay tuned for more from Mr. Wilson on this Thursday’s blog. You won’t want to miss it!
