Berry Global Group, Inc. recently announced a new business structure linked to the company’s recent acquisition of plastics and plastic packaging manufacturer RPC Group Plc. Berry’s business structure will now be comprised of four divisions: Consumer Packaging–International; Consumer Packaging–North America; Engineered Materials; and Health, Hygiene, and Specialties. The company’s previous structure included three divisions: Consumer Packaging; Engineered Materials; and Health, Hygiene, and Specialties.
Berry has appointed Jean-Marc Galvez president of the Consumer Packaging–International Division, and Bill Norman president of the Consumer Packaging–North America Division. Both appointments are effective immediately.
“Our acquisition of RPC and new business structure will allow us to further develop our presence and best serve our customers in key geographic regions,” said Tom Salmon Berry’s chairman and CEO. “Jean-Marc and Bill have been instrumental in developing a growth strategy promoting advantaged products in targeted markets resulting, most recently, in seven consecutive quarters of organic growth for the Consumer Packaging Division.”
Galvez moves to this position after having served as president of Berry’s Consumer Packaging Division since January 2017. From 2012-2016, he served as president for EMEIA of the company’s Health, Hygiene, and Specialties Division. Galvez joined the Berry in 2011 as vice president of Sales, Marketing and Product Development for Europe. Earlier in his career, he served as global commercial general manager at Merquinsa and held various global general manager and commercial roles at Monsanto in Belgium, as well as Dow Chemical in Switzerland. Galvez holds a master’s and bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Ecole Nationale Superieure de Chimie in Monpellier, France.
Norman moves to this position from his role as Berry’s executive vice president for Consumer Packaging Commercial Operations, a role that he recently assumed after having served as executive vice president and general manager for Consumer Packaging Food since 2016. From 2014-2016, he served as president of the Rigid Open Top Division. Norman joined Berry in 1993 and previously held a variety of managerial and vice president positions in areas such as accounting, finance, and commercial and strategic planning. He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Southern Indiana.
