DS Smith Recycling appoints new Managing Director for UK

We are delighted to welcome Andy Berrisford as Managing Director of DS Smith Recycling in the UK. Andy will be responsible for developing our recycling operations, helping customers to reduce waste and increase recycling rates.

Andy joins our team after 13 successful years with global packaging company Amcor. Initially joining Amcor in 2007 as Finance Director for the Amcor Flexibles site in Winterbourne (UK), he then moved into General Management roles from 2010 before becoming Commercial Excellence Director Snacks and Confectionery for the EMEA region.

Prior to Amcor, Andy worked for bottling company Gerber EMIG, now part of Refresco, and multi-national professional services network EY.

I am excited to have Andy onboard at such a crucial time. Andy will really help us focus on improving collection infrastructure so that we can recycle more by collecting the best quality materials.
