MIDLAND, MICH. (July 13, 12:30 p.m. ET) — Susan Oderwald, the former executive director of the Society of Plastics Engineers, has a new job — in the metal packaging coatings sector.
Midland-based Dow Chemical Co. announced May 7 that Oderwald joined Dow Coatings Materials as global marketing manager for metal packaging. She leads the business's marketing efforts for new can coatings in the food and beverage industry.
Oderwald left SPE in December, after announcing in August that she would leave SPE by the end of the year. She joined the trade group in 2001 as deputy executive director. SPE named Oderwald executive director in 2004, to fill the position after Michael Cappelletti retired.
Newtown, Conn.-based SPE named Willem De Vos as its new CEO, the top position, succeeding Oderwald.
