ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Procter and Gamble's new Albany plant manager was introduced to the community Monday.  Bella Lewis met members of the Payroll Development Authority at their noon meeting.      

Lewis has been with P&G for 20 years working at several plants and the corporate headquarters in Cincinnatti.  She says she's excited to be in the community and will work first on learning how the Albany plant operates. 

"For the first quarter I'm really interested to join up with the site and learn what I can about the culture that's there and the people that are there and the great place that Trey's already built on so far and then trying to understand what our next opportunities are cost is going to be one of them but there are others we're also looking at," said Lewis.       

Lewis replaces Trey Bloodworth who is being reassigned after three years in Albany.  He will remain at the plant during the transition period over the next month.
