MWV’s board of directors chose James Nevels as a new member, the packaging company announced Thursday.
Nevels, the 62-year-old chairman of the Philadelphia-based investment advisory firm The Swarthmore Group and president of the Hershey Company’s board of directors, will work on MWV’s development and auditing committees. He joins the board as the company works to increase its margin goals and expand its packaging endeavors.
Before founding the Swarthmore Group in 1991, Nevels worked in investment and securities firms like Smith Barney and Prudential Bach Securities. He also serves as the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s board chairman.
