ATLANTA, Jan. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WestRock Company (NYSE:WRK) announced today that it has been named to FORTUNE magazine’s annual list of World’s Most Admired Companies for the third consecutive year.

WestRock ranked second among companies in the packaging and container industry, up two spots from 2017.

The World’s Most Admired Companies survey measures nine attributes considered critical to a company’s global success, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed. The list, widely considered to be the definitive report card on corporate reputation, is based on company surveys and peer ratings from senior executives, directors and analysts. 

“WestRock is honored to be recognized by FORTUNE as one of the world’s most admired companies for the third consecutive year,” said Steve Voorhees, WestRock chief executive officer.  “This ranking is a testament to the dedication and commitment of our 45,000 team members to partnering with our customers and delivering value for our customers and stockholders.”

The full list appears in the February 1, 2018 issue of FORTUNE, available now at www.fortune.com/worlds-most-admired-companies and on newsstands January 22, 2018.
