Ball Corporation has announced the appointment of Dan Fisher, the current president of the packaging company, as its next CEO.
Fisher will succeed John Hayes, who will remain chairman of the board. Fisher first joined Ball 12 years ago and held several executive leadership roles, such as senior vice president and COO, before being promoted to president in early 2021.
Stuart Taylor, lead independent director on Ball’s board, said: “This announcement is the successful culmination of a purposeful, multiyear succession plan based on John’s desire to step away from day-to-day management. Dan has worked closely with the board over the past several years, and we look forward to the next phase in our development with Dan as CEO.”
Fisher added: “It is an honour to be named the next CEO of Ball Corporation, and I want to thank both John and the board for the confidence they have placed in me to lead this strong organisation. Ball is well-positioned for the future, and I welcome the opportunity to continue to work with John as chairman and benefit from his experience as we create value for all of our stakeholders, using ‘Drive for 10’ and ‘EVA’ as our guide.”
