Innovia CEO retires; new CEO announced
Innovia Group has announced several changes to its executive team, including the retirement of its Group CEO David Beeby.
Having spent 10 years in the position, Beeby announced his retirement after the company changed hands in April 2014. Having learnt of the new owners’ time frame to invest in and build on the company, Beeby said he did not wish to commit to such a long period of future employment. Beeby will be retained as an advisor to the company after his retirement.
Mark Robertshaw has been selected as Beeby’s replacement and will start in the role in late January 2015. He will transition into the role in the coming months prior to Beeby’s retirement.
Robertshaw has spent the last eight years as CEO of Morgan Advanced Materials, an international manufacturing business.
“Today’s announcement marks a significant event in the evolution of Innovia. As we transition the leadership of the group, we will lose, following David Beeby’s forthcoming retirement, a first-class CEO who has been instrumental in building our business into what it is today. The business now has a truly global footprint, a proven ability to innovate and has market-leading positions in all of its major market segments,” said Malcolm Fallen, chairman of Innovia.
“At the same time, we are delighted to have attracted Mark Robertshaw to join as our new CEO. With a demonstrable track record in driving growth and performance, he also has experience of helping global businesses to enhance technology and differentiate themselves in their markets.”
