Amcor chair Graeme Liebelt said: “On behalf of the board, we thank Ron for his outstanding leadership and dedication to the company and our people during his more than 18 years of service.  

“Under Ron’s leadership, Amcor has added billions of dollars in annual revenues, successfully completed the transformational Bemis acquisition, strengthened its global leadership positions in key markets and consistently led the industry by embedding sustainability into its operating and strategic agenda.”   

In addition to this announcement, Amcor reaffirmed its financial year 2024 guidance, forecasting adjusted earnings per share of A$0.67 ($0.43¢) to A$0.71 for the 12 months ending 30 June 2024.
