Montreal-based polyethylene film maker Imaflex Inc. has appointed plastics industry veteran Roger Tambay as its new president and CEO.

Tambay replaces outgoing president and CEO Joe Abbandonato, who will remain with the company as executive chairman of Imaflex.

In a May 30 news release, Imaflex officials said that Tambay has over 30 years of global experience in the polymer and plastics industries with multinational, mid-market and early-stage companies. “He is a subject matter expert in biopolymers and materials circularity,” the release said.
