Mondi recently announced that Thomas Ott was appointed CEO of its Flexible Packaging and Engineered Materials business units earlier this year. He began his career at Mondi in 1995 as a financial controller and took on leading positions in various business sectors in the following years. His most recent role was with the packaging manufacturer Amcor in Switzerland.

As CEO of Mondi Flexible Packaging and Engineered Materials, Ott is responsible for around €4 billion (approximately $4.3 billion) in turnover with a team of more than 12,000 employees in 29 countries. He succeeds Peter Orisich, who has retired.

“Mondi’s entire business activity is driven by our commitment to sustainability,” Ott said. “As part of our Mondi Action Plan 2030 (MAP2030), we aim to make all Mondi products reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025. We are also taking action on climate with MAP2030 Climate Action Roadmaps and committed to a science-based greenhouse gas emissions Net-Zero target by 2050.”

To achieve this, Ott is counting on a diverse, motivated, and inclusive team. “Safeguarding all forms of diversity throughout the organisation is—and will remain—one of our primary tasks,” he said.
