“I am pleased to announce that the independent directors of our Board have elected Patrick as lead director and I look forward to his continued focus on our culture of integrity and strong governance,” said Mitch Butier, chairman, president and CEO. “I also want to thank David for more than 20 years of Board service. He has been an influential leader throughout his tenure, and we have benefited tremendously from his commitment to the company.”

“It’s been a privilege for me to serve on the Board of Avery Dennison,” said Pyott. “I’m confident that the management team and the company’s talented global workforce will continue to deliver long-term value to all its stakeholders.”
