"Erik joined the company just prior to the announcement of the Rexam acquisition and much has changed since then," said John Hayes, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "He has made significant contributions to our global beverage can operations while the company navigated a complex acquisition and, given the change in circumstances including the location of his role from Zurich to our headquarters in Colorado, we both mutually agreed to this decision. We wish Erik well in his future endeavors."
Fisher joined Ball in 2010 as vice president, finance, North American metal beverage operations. Since 2014, he has served as president, Beverage Packaging North and Central America, where he has led growth initiatives, increased profitability and EVA dollar generation.
"We are very excited for Dan and confident that his management skills, financial acumen and deep knowledge of the beverage can industry will result in a seamless leadership transition both internally and externally," Hayes said.
The company expects to announce a successor for the Beverage Packaging North and Central America leadership position during the first quarter of 2017.
