Tri-Seal, a Tekni-Plex business, has announced that Brian Jacobi has joined as VP and General Manager of its North America operations.
Jacobi will be responsible for the North America closure liners business, which includes a broad portfolio of closure liners and seals used on glass, metal and plastic containers for a range of products including pharmaceutical, household/industrial and agrichemical products.
He will report to David Andrulonis, Senior VP and General Manager for Tri-Seal’s global operations.
“With Tekni-Plex’s recent acquisition of Oracle Packaging, which included a closure liner portfolio, it was necessary to create a new position to manage a significantly larger business. Brian brings a wealth of cross-functional packaging experience which will be an asset to providing solutions to the marketplace,” said Andrulonis.
Prior to joining Tri-Seal, Jacobi was VP of sales and marketing for distribution, food and beverage, household and spirits at Berry Global. He has also held a variety of sales, production and finance roles at other well-known packaging companies, including Rexam, Graham Packaging and O-I.
