WESTLAKE, OhioNordson Corporation (NASDAQ: NDSN) announced that Anand Patel will succeed Ray Cushing as vice president, treasury and finance following Ray's upcoming retirement.
Anand joins Nordson on September 26 from O-I Glass, Inc. (Nasdaq: OI), a global manufacturing company, where he served as vice president and treasurer. He has held roles of increasing responsibility at O-I since 2013, and prior to that he was a senior manager at Deloitte Tax LLP for nine years.
Joe Kelley, executive vice president, chief financial officer, said, "We are looking forward to welcoming Anand to Nordson's finance team. His expertise and experience gained throughout his professional career with large, global manufacturing organizations will serve him well in supporting Nordson's next chapter of profitable growth."
Mr. Patel most recently was responsible for O-I's global treasury function, which included planning and execution of capital market transactions, managing liquidity for O-I's global operations, developing and maintaining global banking and bondholder relationships, managing foreign currency and interest rate risk, establishing capital allocation priorities, and more. At O-I, he managed a global team across several countries.
Anand succeeds Ray Cushing, who plans to retire at the end of the calendar year after 42 successful years with the company.
