Robeson joins the Coveris team serving as VP of customer care, where he will work closely with customers to ensure that Coveris is continuously improving the service and quality metrics that matter most to its customers. Robeson brings nearly 30 years of global experience in operational and supply chain management, including the improvement of quality, service, and delivery. He most recently was VP of Operations EMEIA for Ingersoll Rand plc, a global diversified industrials company. In this role, he was responsible for the strategic functions and lean practices of seven manufacturing locations and 1,200 employees. He was previously VP of operations at Cooper Industries Ltd., group director of quality and lean manufacturing at Associated Spring, a division of Barnes Group, Inc., and held a number of leadership positions at Textron Inc., early in his career.
