Amcor flexible packaging has hired former Tetra Pak director Aluisio Ragazzi Fonseca as VP/GM of its South America Flexibles business unit.

Fonseca spent nearly two decades at Tetra Pak including senior VP, Americas and successfully integrated the company’s North, Central and South America regions into a single Americas business unit.

 He was also MD of Tetra Pak’s packaging and processing operations in Colombia and Ecuador, creating the company’s Andean business unit – spanning Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela – and a 500% increase in regional volumes over six years.

Tom Cochran, president, Amcor Flexibles Americas, said it is an exciting time for the company and it hopes Fonseca will help them to accelerate business growth in this strategically important part of the world. 

He’s a highly successful business leader with extensive packaging industry knowledge from across the Americas​,” he said. 

As well as being a director on multiple Tetra Pak boards, including Packaging and Processing, Global Processing and Cluster Central and South America, Fonseca was VP, Packaging and Processing, Beverages and Food in Brazil and led a start-up of a polyethylene terephthalate plastic operation, growing the overall business at an annual rate of 20%.
