Roelof joins Amcor from Royal DSM where he has held a number of leadership positions over a 27 year career. Since 2008 Roelof has been President DSM Engineering Plastics, a global business generating sales of ?1.3 billion supplying innovative solutions and materials to the automotive, electronics and food packaging industries. Prior to this role Roelof was Business Unit President DSM Engineering Plastics Asia Pacific. During his career at DSM, Roelof has worked and lived in Asia for 15 years.
Ralf Wunderlich, President Amcor Flexibles Asia Pacific for the last six years has decided to leave Amcor to pursue other career interests.
Managing Director and CEO, Mr Delia said: "I am delighted to appoint Roelof as President Amcor Flexibles Asia Pacific. Roelof has extensive experience managing and growing a large scale business in the Asia Pacific region. He has overseen the development of greenfield projects and has a successful track record of delivering organic growth through innovation. Roelof's depth of experience will be a valuable asset to Amcor as he steps into his new role.
"Ralf Wunderlich has made an outstanding contribution to Amcor since joining the company in 2010. Under his leadership sales in the Flexibles Asia Pacific business have grown from US$450 million to US$1.2 billion, and the regional footprint has expanded to 40 plants across eight countries. His contribution to Amcor's Global Management Team during a very successful period in the company's history has been considerable and will be missed. I would like to thank Ralf for his dedication and leadership and wish him well for the future."
