Goss International has appointed Mike D’Angelo, an executive with more than 30 years of experience in the printing and packaging industries, to the newly created position of Managing Director for the Americas.
D’Angelo will lead the Goss sales, service and support organization involved with packaging and newspaper printing operations throughout North America and Latin America. With his industry-specific experience, Goss stated he is to also play an important role as the company expands its portfolio and presence in the packaging and converting sector.
D’Angelo has held sales and executive positions since 1982 with Bobst, one of the world’s largest suppliers of press and auxiliary equipment for packaging and converting. He most recently led the business unit responsible for web-fed products and was a member of the company’s executive committee in North America.
Rick Nichols, Goss president and CEO, states D’Angelo’s appointment fits the transformation of the company’s organizational structure, which is now based on four regional centres responsible for sales, service and support for the Americas, Europe, China and Asia. “Our support network already differentiates Goss in the Americas, and Mike’s background puts him in a unique position to help us further strengthen and coordinate that network,” stated Nichols.
D’Angelo is a graduate of Villanova University in Pennsylvania. He has served on the board of directors of the Flexible Packaging Association and the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation. He is also a member or former member of the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry, the Paperboard Packaging Council, the Flexographic Technical Association and the Gravure Association of America.
