Last updated on 08-Mar-2012 at 12:27 GMT

Glass packaging giant Owens-Illinois (O-I) will appoint Sergio Galindo as president of their Asia Pacific region from 1 May.

Galindo, who is currently general manager of O-I Colombia and has held the same role in Peru, will replace Stephen P. Bramlage Jr.

Since being named general manager of O-I Colombia in 2009, Galindo has nearly doubled earnings, expanded the country's glass packaging specialties business and drove significant productivity improvements, said O-I.

O-I's Asia Pacific region has 12 sites which accounts for nearly $1 billion of the company's global sales.

CEO and chairman, Al Stroucken, said: "He helped the Colombian organization adapt to a changing marketplace, adjusting its footprint while growing sales, and he has shown a passion for developing businesses opportunities.

These experiences will be directly applicable to our Asia Pacific operations."
