In his new role, Robert (Bob) Beckler will assume global commercial responsibilities, including leadership of the company’s three packaging segments: Food & Beverage; Home, Health & Beauty; and Industrial Packaging. In addition, he will be responsible for MWV’s Specialty Chemicals business, and will continue his oversight of the company’s strategy and business initiatives across Latin America.

“Bob Beckler has been a key leader in MWV’s most successful businesses over the past decade,” stated John A.

Bob’s strategic vision and energetic leadership in this new role will be a critical factor in the success of our packaging business, including the recently-announced margin improvement actions he will lead over the coming months and beyond.”

Robert (Bob) A. Feeser will assume global operations responsibilities, including leadership of the company’s paperboard, primary plastics and folding carton operations around the world, as well as business support services, supply chain, engineering, and safety, health and environmental functions.

“Bob Feeser is a leader with keen judgment and extensive operational experience,” said Luke. “His work at MWV over the past many years has helped position our packaging business for success – especially shaping our participation in global paperboard end markets and improving the productivity of our large mills.
