Lopez Named President of O-I Americas

Owens-Illinois (O-I) recently announced that Andres Lopez has been named president of O-I Americas, effective immediately. Lopez will lead the North America and South America regions of the company, and will be based in Perrysburg, Ohio. North America and South America share common goals around commercial and operational excellence, profitability and cash generation.
 
Lopez joined O-I in 1986 and has held various leadership positions, including country general manager; vice president of manufacturing, North America; and global vice president, manufacturing and engineering. Most recently, he served as president of O-I South America since April 2009, where he led a significant improvement in the performance of the region in the areas of safety, cost competitiveness and commercial results. Under Lopez's leadership, the region achieved significant organic growth, complemented by the integration of several acquisitions in Brazil and Argentina.
 
“Andres' knowledge and deep experience with O-I gives us the opportunity to leverage best practices across both regions and enhance our overall competitiveness,” said Chairman and CEO Al Stroucken. “I am confident in his ability to provide strong leadership to these regional organizations and accelerate delivery of results for shareholders and employees.”
