Kimberly Bolton - CEO
Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Kimberly developed a deep respect and appreciation for the environment early on. Having so much exposure to South African wildlife all of her life allowed her to see how beautiful our world can be and how the environmental troubles we are facing can impact that beauty in an instant. She was interested in Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability early on leading her to study Economics and Environmental Sciences at the University of Cape Town and further a Master in Business Sustainability at The University of Sydney. Everything fell into place when her group won the University’s ‘Inventing the Future Program’, allowing her to create a practical solution for the plastic problem and turn this into a company. Now Co-Founder and CEO at Carapac, Kimberly aims to tackle the plastic problem head on and change the world of packaging with this wonderful product. She hopes generations after her will be able to enjoy the coastal walks and swims she loves so much!
