Avery Dennison Corporation announced that it has named John M. Sallay to the position of senior vice president, New Growth Platforms. In this new position, Sallay will be a member of the Company's Corporate Leadership Team and will be located in the Company's Framingham, Massachusetts office.

"John brings a wealth of experience to Avery Dennison as both a business builder and investor," said Dean A. Scarborough, president and chief executive officer. "In his role as head of New Growth Platforms, John will focus exclusively on growth opportunities for the Company, providing the direction and leadership necessary to develop a steady pipeline of new growth platforms for Avery Dennison and its businesses."

Sallay's responsibilities will include designing and building an organization to screen, select, fund and deliver on the Company's enterprise growth agenda, and support Group growth programs. Sallay will lead a team of venture management and business development professionals in defining the growth missions of each organization and in establishing their budget and investment requirements.
