Coveris appoints head of Films division

L-R: Dennis Patterson, president Labels & Board; Martin Davis, president Films; Jakob A. Mosser, CEO; and Christian Kolarik, president Flexibles

Coveris has appointed Martin Davis as president of its Films division, completing the formation of its new leadership team.

Following the divestiture of its Rigids and Americas divisions in 2018, Coveris has refocused its business on the EMEA region. As part of this transformation, it has now realigned its activities into three core business units – Films, Flexibles and Labels & Board. 

The Coveris leadership team is now complete with the immediate appointment of Martin Davis as president of its Films business, joining Christian Kolarik and Dennis Patterson as leaders of the Flexibles and Labels & Board divisions respectively. 

Martin Davis joined Coveris in 2015 as chief operating officer. A graduate in business administration and management, he has spent more than 25 years in the packaging industry performing a range of leadership roles, both in the United Kingdom and overseas. 

‘Our recent success to execute the corporate strategy is, to a large degree, derived from our new focused business unit structure,’ said Jakob A. Mosser, CEO of Coveris. ‘Facing a new dynamic of sustainable developments, our Films business is playing an essential role in realizing the best possible solutions for our customers. Therefore, I am especially proud to announce the appointment of Martin Davis who will play a fundamental role in strengthening our executive leadership team and proven industry expertise.’
