Amcor names Aluisio Ragazzi Fonseca as Vice President, Flexibles, South America

Amcor, a global supplier of packaging for a variety of applications, including pharmaceutical, medical-device, home and personal-care products, has named Aluisio Ragazzi Fonseca as VP, Flexibles, South America.

We expect Aluisio to help us accelerate business growth and enhance our ability to win for our customers and other stakeholders in this strategically important part of the world,” said Amcor Flexibles Americas President Tom Cochran. “He’s a highly successful business leader with extensive packaging industry knowledge from across the Americas.

Mr. Fonseca has held a broad range of responsibilities across his career, including during nearly two decades at Tetra Pak. His most recent role there was as senior vice president, Americas, responsible for profit-and-loss across the hemisphere’s more than $500 million business. Previously, he led the company’s successful integration of North, Central and South America into a single Americas business unit.

Earlier, as managing director of Tetra Pak’s packaging and processing operations in Colombia and Ecuador, Mr. Fonseca led an expansion that created the company’s Andean business unit – spanning Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela – and a 500-percent increase in regional volumes over six years.

Mr. Fonseca served as vice president, Packaging and Processing, for Beverages and Food in Brazil. In that role, he was responsible for start-up of a polyethylene terephthalate plastic operation. He was a director on multiple Tetra Pak boards, including for Packaging and Processing, Global Processing and Cluster Central and South America.

Mr. Fonseca holds degrees in mechanical and industrial engineering from Universidade Paulista, and in sales and marketing administration from Fundação Getulio Vargas, both in Brazil. He has completed the IFL-International Management Program at the Stockholm School of Economics and Duke University.
