Precision Global, a leading global manufacturer of aerosol valves, actuators and other dispensing solutions across a variety of end markets, today announced that Mario Barbero has been appointed Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Mr. Barbero succeeds Doug Hind, who will retire from day-to-day leadership after successfully managing Precision Global for the past several years and through its acquisition by an affiliate of Peak Rock Capital in May 2015.
Mr. Barbero joins Precision Global with nearly 20 years of experience in the value-added packaging industry, most recently as Chief Executive Officer of ALLTUB Group, a leading manufacturer and supplier of collapsible aluminum tubes and aerosol cans.

Mario is a highly-talented international packaging executive with extensive experience serving many of the same end markets and multinational customers that Precision Global serves today. His demonstrated track record of driving significant value creation across both sales and operations is a great fit for Precision as it continues to pursue numerous compelling growth opportunities.”
Mr. Strauss continued, “We would like to thank Doug for his leadership in helping to build Precision Global into a leading global dispensing solutions company. His hard work and dedication have provided a great foundation for long-term success.”
Mr. Barbero said, “I’m both honored and excited to join Precision Global. The company enjoys a strong reputation for providing the highest levels of quality, broadest product assortment and outstanding customer service. With a leading global footprint and differentiated technical expertise, Precision is well-positioned for continued industry leadership and rapid growth. I look forward to working with my new colleagues to pursue exciting and transformational growth initiatives.”
