API Strengthens its focus on global growth with new appointment

Brand enhancement specialist API is pleased to announce the appointment of Drew Beringer as Senior Consultant, further strengthening its leadership team as the company continues with its aggressive growth, capital, and restructuring plans.

In his new role, Beringer will report to API President and CEO Dino Kiriakopoulos as he focuses on technical, process, and business development projects on a global level.

“After meeting the team at API, it was clear to me that the company’s vision of becoming the global leader for its portfolio of brand enhancement products was precisely the next challenge that I was looking for in my career,” explains Beringer. Joining API provides me with an exciting opportunity to use my varied experience in manufacturing, technical, financial, and sales to help fully realise the global ambitions of the business.”

With over 20 years of experience in hot and cold foil stamping, Beringer brings a wealth of operational and commercial skill to API at a time when the company is forging ahead with its international growth initiatives.

Previously, Beringer served as Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Kurz Transfer Products in North Carolina, where he was responsible for all areas of the business, including both the manufacture and marketing of stamping foils and decorative finishes for packaging.

“API is delighted to be welcoming Drew to our team,” said Kiriakopoulos. “The addition of a leader like Drew will help us serve our customers with the largest, most consistent, and innovative range of foils, holographics, and laminates available.”
