Meet the Team
Get to know our global team members. This month we feature Kent Furst, a manager of industry studies at Freedonia.

Kent Furst

I’ve been working at Freedonia for 12 years. After authoring 50 industry studies on a diverse range of topics, I took over management of the Polymers & Packaging group at Freedonia. My job is to make sure our studies continue to meet the high standards of top-notch research that Freedonia is known for.

Recently, I’ve been focusing on expanding the range of topics covered by Freedonia in our key areas of expertise. In the past year we’ve published a number of detailed studies on Paint & Coatings, Food Packaging, and Plastic Films which provide better coverage of fast-growing niches in these industries. I’m also looking forward to speaking at the Global Caps & Closures conference in Chicago in September and meeting people in the industry.
