AMB Spa, a leading international supplier of rigid and flexible films, today announced that the Board of Directors has appointed Giles Peacock, the company’s Chief Operating Officer, as its new Chief Executive Officer, starting on 12th November 2021. AMB’s current CEO Bruno Marin is stepping down after over 33 years in the role for personal reasons.
The AMB Board would like to thank Bruno for his leadership and dedication to AMB over the years. Under his stewardship, AMB has achieved tremendous growth and set the foundations for ongoing success, with expanded production facilities and new product innovations, particularly in sustainable packaging. Thanks to Bruno’s leadership, AMB has seen significant growth and is well positioned for the next chapter of our story.
Mr. Marin said: “It has been a privilege to lead to AMB, a company that was co-founded by my mother and that has grown to become a leading force in the food packaging industry. However, for personal reasons, now is the right time for me to step back from the business and focus on other areas. I would like to thank the Board and all my colleagues for their support over the years. I am very proud of the business we have grown together and look forward to seeing the company move from strength to strength under Giles’ leadership.”
Mr. Peacock said: “I’m honoured to be taking over the role of CEO and appreciate the opportunity to have worked with Bruno over the last several years. AMB is a leading company in the food packaging sector that has been delivering double-digit growth as result of its focus on sustainability, service, safety and design. I look forward to working with the entire AMB team to continue to innovate and deliver excellent service, quality and value for our customers.”
