Silgan announces new CEO

Silgan Holdings has announced that its board of directors has appointed Adam J. Greenlee as chief executive officer, effective 1 September, 2021.

Greenlee will also continue as president of the company. He joined Silgan in 2005 and ran its North American closures operations prior to being appointed executive vice president in October 2007. He was named chief operating officer in 2009 and was appointed president in April 2019.

Greenlee replaces Tony Allott who has served as chief executive officer of Silgan since March 2006, only its second CEO since its founding in 1987. Allott will continue to serve as executive chairman.

“Adam and I have worked closely together on every major activity of Silgan for the past decade and he has been responsible for the oversight of each of our operating businesses in recent years. Just as importantly, Adam understands and personifies the unique culture of our company and has consistently shown his ability to deliver results as Silgan has continued on its path of growth and success. While I am sure his leadership will explore new ideas and opportunities, I am equally confident it will be founded on the ideals and principles that have served us so well in the past,” said Tony Allott, chairman and CEO.
