Glenn Fish is CFO and Executive Vice President of Tekni-Plex, a globally-integrated manufacturer of packaging materials, medical compounds and tubing.
During his 3 year tenure with the company, Tekni-Plex has achieved consistent year on year quarterly earnings growth and has completed five strategic acquisitions.
Paul Young, CEO of Tekni-Plex, said: “Glenn’s leadership abilities have been instrumental in helping our company achieve significant profitable growth. In addition to driving growth and synergies through acquisitions, he has helped reduce our borrowing costs and realise improvements in our management information systems.
“We operate six business units and have 30 manufacturing facilities located across the globe. With a business so diverse, it can be challenging to oversee the financial health of our operation if you do not have significant experience and skills to help manage a multinational company.”
