"This is a critical and exciting time for Oliver in Asia Pacific and we’re proud to welcome Kenneth to the team," said Michael Benevento, President and Chief Executive Officer at Oliver.

Kenneth has spent the last decade working with customers throughout Asia and has a wealth of knowledge and an unwavering commitment to quality and excellence, which our customers need to succeed. He is the right person to grow our capabilities and make Oliver the regional leader in flexible healthcare packaging." 

De Muynck added, “The healthcare industry throughout the world, but specifically in APAC, is witnessing remarkable growth, fueled by rapid technological advancement, increasing investment, and rising demand for quality care. I’m proud to join Oliver at this monumental time, with the construction of a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility underway. This is a time to capitalize on the opportunities the region offers to deliver the superior solutions and unsurpassed quality our customers deserve.”
