Veteran packaging journalist Lisa McTigue Pierce is the Executive Editor of Packaging Digest, “The Voice of the Packaging Community.”

Pierce joined UBM as Editor of Packaging Digest magazine in 2010 and was promoted to Executive Editor in 2012. She started her packaging media career in 1982 with Package Engineering magazine, a Cahners publication which subsequently changed its name to Packaging. Eleven years and seven promotions later, she resigned as Senior Editor to lead Food & Drug Packaging as its Editor when the magazine was bought by Independent Publishing in 1993. She was promoted to Editor-in-Chief in 1997 and took on the added role of Editorial Director for sister publication Flexible Packaging in 2008 (the same year that Food & Drug Packagingchanged its name to Food & Beverage Packaging).
