Glenn Wright becomes business vice president, performance packaging.
announced that Glenn Wright,
commercial vice president for North America Plastics, has been named business
vice president, Performance Packaging, an $8 billion global business unit in
the Company’s Performance Plastics Division.
Dow’s newly-created Performance
Packaging business represents a shift away from an asset-based approach to a
market/value chain orientation and is aligned with Dow’s strategy to transform
the Performance Plastics franchise to focus on downstream,
technology-differentiated solutions. Performance Packaging largely addresses
the flexible food packaging market.
In his new role, Wright will
drive increased market orientation and value chain focus around Dow’s
participation in the global packaging market.
Prior to his last role as
Commercial Vice President for NAA Plastics, Wright served as global business
director for High Density and Low Density Polyethylene, North American Supply
Chain director for Plastics, and has held numerous positions in sales and
marketing in the plastics business. With more than 25 years of industry
experience, Wright came to Dow in 2001 via the merger transaction with Union
Carbide Corp. in 2001.
