Lynn Bragg has been named president of the Glass Packaging Institute (GPI). She assumed the position of president following the retirement of Joseph Cattaneo.

“Lynn comes to GPI with a great breadth of experience in the government service and association management realms,” said Rich Crawford, chairman of the GPI’s board of trustees. “We look forward to her leading our industry association as we address the challenges and opportunities that present themselves within our ever-changing, ever-evolving field.”

Bragg has extensive government and association experience. In recent years, she served as CEO of Worldwide ERC, a workforce mobility association; and as president of the Chocolate Manufacturers Association. On the government service front, she was appointed to the U.S. International Trade Commission by then-president Bill Clinton, holding the positions of chairman and vice chairman during her tenure. She was also the legislative director for former U.S. Senator Malcolm Wallop (R-Wyo.).

“I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with the nation’s glass container manufacturers as they offer new and innovative packaging solutions,” Bragg said. “I look forward to working with GPI’s members as we move forward in educating customers and consumers about the benefits of using glass packaging, including its environmental friendliness, endless recyclability and unmatched ability to maintain the freshness, purity and taste of products packaged in it.”
