Sealed Air (SEE) has announced that Alessandra Faccin is being promoted to president of the company’s Asia-Pacific (APAC) region and Shuxian (Susan) Yang is being appointed to corporate treasurer and finance leader of SEE Automation, both effective January 1, 2022.
Alessandra Faccin is succeeding current APAC President Kevin Piccione, who will retire at the end of the year.
“We appreciate Kevin’s contributions and leadership to SEE throughout his 23 years of service and wish him the best in his retirement,” said Ted Doheny, president and chief executive officer of SEE.
Alessandra will join the SEE Executive Leadership Team and be based in Singapore. The company’s APAC region includes 25 manufacturing facilities and approximately 3,000 employees.
She joined SEE in 2013 and has more than 20 years of experience working in global industrial and manufacturing businesses in the Americas and Europe. She has held several leadership roles within the company including vice-president and general manager of the North America Protective Business and led the company’s successful integration of Automated Packaging Systems (APS). Most recently, she served as corporate treasurer. Prior to SEE, Faccin held leadership roles at The Dow Chemical Company and at Rohm and Haas Chemical.
“It’s an exciting time to be a part of SEE. APAC is a diverse, dynamic and rapidly growing region. I look forward to working with our talented team and bringing a fresh perspective to help our customers solve their critical packaging challenges. With our strong market position, scale and inimitable solutions in automation, digital and sustainability, we will focus on APAC markets to accelerate growth and performance,” said Faccin.
Shuxian (Susan) Yang will lead the Corporate Treasury function in addition to being the finance leader of SEE Automation. Since joining the company in 2014, Yang has held multiple finance leadership roles including financial planning for the company’s food and protective businesses. In this capacity, she has also been integral in the company’s automation and equipment strategy.
“We are proud to promote Alessandra and Susan, two talented leaders enabling SEE to become a world-class, digitally driven company automating sustainable packaging solutions,” said Doheny.
