Bennish Joins Oliver
GRAND RAPIDS — Oliver Products Co. has added Jerry Bennish to its management staff as president and chief executive officer.
Bennish has been in the packaging business for 27 years, including roles in engineering, manufacturing, sales, marketing and general management. Most recently he was with Amcor Flexibles. Prior to Amcor’s acquisition of REXAM Medical Packaging, Bennish was president of REXAM Medical Packaging Americas.
