Provider of plastic consumer packaging, nonwoven specialty materials, and engineering materials Berry Plastics appointed Jean-Marc Galvez as president of the consumer packaging division, the Evansville, IN company announced Monday.

Currently serving as president for Europe, Middle East, India and Africa for the company’s Health, Hygiene, and Specialties division, Galvez will succeed Tom Salmon on Jan. 1, 2017. Salmon was recently named as the company’s president and chief operating officer, a role he assumed on Oct. 3.

“I look forward to working closely with Jean-Marc as Berry continues to build upon its strong North American Consumer Packaging business and implements strategic initiatives to increase the business’ global presence,” said Salmon in a statement.

The incoming consumer packaging division president joined Berry-acquired AVINTIV in 2011 as vice president of sales, marketing, and product development for Europe. He also was global commercial general manager at Merquinsa from 2002 to 2011 and held several global general manager and commercial roles at Monsanto in Belgium and Dow Chemical in Switzerland.

Galvez holds a master’s and bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Ecole Nationale Superieure de Chimie in Montpellier, France.
