Grimley steps up at Rexam

Rich Grimley has been named president and CEO of Rexam Beverage Can North America (BCNA).

Last week the company announced the sale of its personal care business to Sun Capital and Silgan. As a result, Rexam will be restructuring parts of its business to reflect the beverage can sales base and to enable stronger regional focus.

Grimley (pictured) replaces Andre Balbi, former leader of both Rexam’s can businesses in North and South America, who, as a result of the re-organisation, will be returning to South America and leaving the company by the end of the year.

Grimley joined Rexam in 2001 as vice president of manufacturing and gained roles of increasing responsibility culminating in his most recent position as chief operating officer for the company’s North and South American beverage can operations.

Grimley has previously worked for National Can, American National Can, Reynolds Metals and Ball Corporation in various operations leadership roles.  He was also a principal owner of Bev-Pak, a beverage can manufacturer.
