The new leadership for North and South America stems from Mactac’s divestiture from Bemis to Platinum Equity.
Mactac (www.mactc.com) has announced Ed T. LaForge as the company's new president for Mactac North and South America. LaForge has been in the position since November 10, 2014, previously serving as the Americas VP of sales and marketing. He succeeds Jim Peruzzi.
LaForge brings 23 years of pressure-sensitive industry experience and more than 15 years of senior leadership to the role, according to the company. As president, he will report to Guido Alvino, president of Mactac Global.
"We are very pleased that Ed, a seasoned industry veteran, will lead Mactac forward in both North and South America," says Alvino. "His strong leadership, industry expertise, operational and financial experience will be instrumental in driving continued growth for Mactac."
