In it to win it
It has been a productive few days at Bell towers with regards to the upcoming Euro CanTech 2016 event.
It is a pleasure to confirm that Colin Gillis, president of Ball Packaging Europe, will be a keynote speaker at the event and will also be one of our roundtable panellists at our newly devised ‘Candid Forum’.
Colin became president of Ball Packaging Europe in January 2013 and has previously led Ball’s beverage packaging businesses in South America and Asia as president of Latapack-Ball Embalagens, Ltda., and prior to that, as president of Ball Asia Pacific, Ltd. During his 39 year career with the company, Colin has also managed Ball beverage and food packaging manufacturing plants in the United States and Canada. It’s a real coup for us to confirm Colin’s attendance and we look forward to drawing upon his expertise at the show.
