Fernando Arriaga Promoted to Senior VP

The most recent addition to MFG’s senior operational management team is Fernando Arriaga, who was promoted to SVP in January. Fernando joined MFG de Mexico in July of 2017 as plant manager for Plant 1, and shortly thereafter was named general manager for all MFG de Mexico facilities. He was promoted to vice president and general manager of Molded Fiber Glass de Mexico in December of 2018.

“Fernando joined MFG in the most challenging of times and led the performance turnaround of MFG Mexico,” stated SVP Dan Plona. “His promotion is well deserved, and I expect his leadership as an SVP will continue to make the MFG team even better.”
