Lovins succeeds Anne Bramman, senior vice president and chief financial officer, who will be leaving Avery Dennison after a brief transition period.
Lovins, 44, has been the company's vice president and treasurer since August 2016, and will continue to serve as treasurer. He was previously vice president, global finance, Materials Group (now Label and Graphic Materials) from January 2011 to August 2016 and, prior to that, held positions of increasing responsibility across the company.
"Greg has extensive knowledge of our businesses developed during his more than 20 years with Avery Dennison. He has held leadership positions in a number of our Materials businesses, including leading the finance function of our largest business, Label and Graphic Materials," says Mitch Butier, president and chief executive officer. "I've worked closely with Greg for over a decade. He is a strong business partner and a good steward of our internal control environment."
Lovins earned an MBA from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University and a BS in Finance from Miami University.
