Libbey Inc. has announced strategic changes to the management roles of a number of its senior executives. The changes, which are effective immediately, reflect the company's strategy to enhance its agility, responsiveness and productivity by acting as "one company" globally, in both commercial and operational arenas.

Richard I. Reynolds has been named executive vice president and chief financial officer (CFO). A 40-year veteran of the company, Reynolds has held positions such as chief operating officer (COO) and CFO. In addition, he has been a member of Libbey's board of directors since 1993.

Gregory T. Geswein will serve as vice president of Strategic Planning and Business Development. He has been the company’s CFO since joining Libbey in May 2007, playing a lead role in the successful debt exchange in October 2009 and refinancing in early 2010.

Daniel P. Ibele has been named to the new position of vice president, Global Sales and Marketing. He joined Libbey in 1983 and has served in a variety of sales and marketing positions, most recently as vice president, General Sales manager, North America.

Roberto B. Rubio will fill the new position of vice president, Global Manufacturing and Engineering. After a 29-year career with Vitro S.A., including several senior management positions, Rubio joined Libbey as managing director of Libbey Mexico in July 2009; he was named vice president, general manager, International Operations, in November 2009.  

Jonathan S. Freeman, who joined Libbey in May 2007, will continue in his role of vice president, Global Supply Chain.

"This global alignment of our senior management team is a key step to more closely align with our growing global customer base,” said John F. Meier, chairman and CEO of Libbey. “We expect that it will enhance our ability to more quickly and efficiently service their needs."
