New appointments at Ball Packaging Europe
Ball Packaging Europe has appointed Dennis Schuilenburg as its new marketing director and Joerg Deppmeyer as general manager. Both have previously worked in the fast-moving consumer goods world (FMCG).
Dennis Schuilenburg joins Ball from Samsung Electronics Benelux, where he served as the director of marketing. He has also previously held leading positions for consumer brand giants Procter & Gamble and Philips. Schuilenburg holds a degree in engineering and management from the University of Twente (Netherlands).
Schuilenburg says, “I am keen to enhance the conversations we are having with our customers around Ball’s strategic approach in the area of sustainability and to look towards opportunities to collaborate in realizing shared, environmental objectives. Sustainability recognitions from organizations such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and Newsweek are welcomed achievements for Ball and stand as a testament to the actionable solutions we look to consistently create for our customers.”
Joerg Deppmeyer is taking over responsibilities from former general manager Wolfgang Hinkel. In his new role Deppmeyer, based in Weißenthurm, Germany, will be in charge of sales, supply/demand, customer service and graphics. Hinkel will serve as managing director responsible for the strategic development of the German beverage can market. Deppmeyer holds a graduate degree in business administration and has previously worked at Kraft Foods and at Coca-Cola.
Deppmeyer says, “Ball beverage cans create a unique drinking experience that is especially appreciated by young consumers. Their value-added proposition effectively targets the needs of different consumer groups and I look forward to further tapping into those opportunities.”
