Mexico City — Mexico's plastics industry association Anipac hopes to appoint a new director general by the end of July, after its previous director stepped down after six months on the job.
José María Rebollo Lang left Anipac in the spring. He was the third director general in less than six years.
Juan Antonio Hernández León, who was elected president of Mexico City-based Anipac (Asociación Nacional de Industrias del Plástico AC) in April, said he did not know why Rebollo Lang had left. It could have been because of a family bereavement shortly before his separation from the association, Hernández said.
“We have interviewed several candidates,” he said. “I hope to have a new director in place by the end of July.”
He said Anipac thought it had persuaded the director of another industrial association to take the position, but she retracted her acceptance.
Rebollo Lang has been unavailable for comment.
Alfredo López Machorro served as director general from 2004 to 2010 before stepping down at age 76. Since then the association has had three directors: Luis Gerardo Álvarez Espinosa, Martha Griselda Alva de la Selva and Rebollo.
Hernández won a contested election for the presidency on a platform to “improve the competence” of the Anipac staff.
