Chicago, IL – January 25, 2017 – Gary Masse, Coveris Chief Executive Officer, has stepped down as CEO of the company effective January 24, 2017.

During Gary’s tenure, Coveris demonstrated strong productivity growth, integrated eight acquisitions and invested aggressively to position the company for growth. Gary has decided the time is right to hand over Coveris to a new leader who can drive the next phase of growth.

The Board of Directors has initiated a search that will consider both external and internal candidates. In the interim, Dave Mezzanotte who knows Coveris well, having served as the Coveris Chairman since 2014, will act as CEO.

The Coveris Board thanks Gary for his many contributions to helping Coveris better serve the needs of our valued customers.
