Change of CEO at BA Glass

BA Glass has announced that Sandra Santos, Chief Executive Officer and Board Member, will step down as CEO on February 22 and in the meantime, starts the transition of leadership to the next CEO, Tiago Moreira da Silva.

Tiago joined BA in 2008 as food key account manager, and since then went through a remarkable career, becoming the CMO in 2016, just before the expansion to South-east Europe in 2017. As member of the Executive Board, Tiago also led Iberian Operations, and recently, Central Europe Operations. Tiago will now lead the Executive Board, driving the company into a new and innovative stage of growth and transformation.

The Executive Board team will welcome new members, Marco Marques and Sylwia Mistrzak, two young and energetic leaders, owners also of a remarkable career in BA.

Sandra has been in the CEO role for the last 10 years, where she successfully steered BA Glass through a strong transformation and growth. Her leadership, inspiration, perseverance and passion for new challenges marked the 10 years of her mandate, moving BA from a EUR 500 million to EUR 1,6 billion turnover company. The board has been extremely impressed with Sandra’s ability to lead the company at all times but, in particular, through the Covid Crisis and the following energy crisis. Sandra will continue to serve on BA’s Board as non-executive Director.

Sandra and Tiago will work closely on the transition of roles, in a strong partnership. Today, with more than 5,000 global employees in Europe and Mexico, BA’s Board continues to reaffirm the company’s mission of building a future with glass packaging.
