On September 7, Aptar hosted its 10th annual Analyst Day at the Marriott Marquis in New York City’s Times Square.
Aptar’s senior management team, including: Stephan Tanda, President and CEO; Bob Kuhn, Executive Vice President and CFO; Eldon Schaffer; President of Aptar Beauty + Home; Salim Haffar, President of Aptar Pharma; and Gael Touya, President of Aptar Food + Beverage, provided Wall Street analysts, and investors, with a comprehensive look at key elements of Aptar’s strategy.
They also discussed Aptar’s near-term priorities, financial targets and key initiatives along with macro growth opportunities for the future.
During the meeting, Stephan Tanda explained, “Aptar has a tremendous history with more than 75 years of entrepreneurship. Innovation is at the core of our DNA, driving differentiation and driving solutions for our customers. We are partners with some of the most trusted brands in the world, reaching millions of consumers. We have an expansive portfolio of global products which we tailor into winning local solutions and we are generating strong cash flows and strong returns, along with a pristine balance sheet.”
Mr. Tanda also explained Aptar’s focus on ‘thinking local, leveraging global’ by saying, “In most areas of our business, the decision as to whether we win business or not, is made locally. We have very strong local presence. We understand where the consumer shops, where they live, what, and how, they consume. We understand the local value chain ecosystem and use our local production facilities to develop winning local solutions. Going forward, we’re bringing stronger resources to the regions, including high-growth economies, and increasing the empowerment and accountability of our regional units to drive business growth.”
Mr. Tanda continued by saying, “We have a very robust business model, full of committed people, and a core strategy that is sound yet adaptable to change. I’m excited about driving the future of Aptar with our team.”
