CHICAGO — Gary Masse has been named CEO of global packaging company Coveris, effective April 14, the company announced on March 17.

Masse succeeds Jack Knott, who will remain with the company as a non-executive director.

Chicago-based Coveris claims to be the sixth-largest global plastics packaging company. The company, formerly named Exopack Holdings SA, formed in May when five plastics packaging companies owned by private equity firm Sun Capital Partners Inc. united under a single banner.

Masse most recently was CEO of Precision Partners Inc., a $500 million engineering and manufacturing company. Immediately prior to that, he was group president for Cooper Industries, where he managed the $800 million Cooper Tools global business.

Masse has also held executive and senior management positions at Danaher Corp. and General Electric.

Coveris has annual sales of more than $2.8 billion and more than 8,600 employees.
