AVERY DENNISON GLOBALISES GRAPHICS AND REFLECTIVE PRODUCTS DIVISION
Avery Dennison Corporation has created a new worldwide Graphics and Reflective Products Division -- reflecting the increasing globalisation of the market for self-adhesive graphics and signage. Bringing together Avery Dennison Graphics Division and Avery Reflective Products Division entities across the world, the new division is led by Vice President and General Manager Ferdinand R Pranckh, and by Global Commercial Vice President Helen M Saunders.
Most recently Vice President and General Manager of the Reflective Products Division, Mr Pranckh has a distinguished and broad-based career with Avery Dennison Corporation. He is located at the new division's headquarters in Painesville, Ohio, USA, and reports directly to Sandra Beach Lin, Group Vice President, Specialty Materials and Converting.
Helen M Saunders combines her new role with managerial responsibility for the Graphics and Reflective Products Division's operations in Hazerswoude, The Netherlands -- a post to which she was appointed in 2004. She continues to be located at the European divisional headquarters in Hazerswoude, The Netherlands.
The formation of the worldwide Graphics and Reflective Division is a strategic initiative to create a more streamlined customer interface in a marketplace that is increasingly seeing cross-border -- and cross-continent -- trading; and where major end user buyers of graphic and reflective products are seeking to maintain high-quality, consistent brand and corporate images within a global context.
