Director of Business Development
Amcor Flexibles North America Healthcare
Ed has 38 years in flexible packaging. With a degree in chemistry, his career began in R&D with the development of new packaging materials to provide the needed shelf life for perishable food products while also meeting the needs of retailers and consumers. Many of these early packaging material developments were driven by customer’s who had goals to move away from materials that had a poor reputation for sustainability. The second half of Ed’s career has been in the healthcare packaging industry (pharma, medical device, and consumer health) where he has been more focused on commercial aspects of the business with various leadership assignments in marketing, product management, pricing, strategy development, M&A, and business development. Throughout his career, he has always had a passion towards finding new solutions that have substantially better sustainability versus incumbent options.
