On May 24, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of AptarGroup, Inc. (the “Company”) appointed Candace Matthews as a director, effective May 28, 2021. Ms. Matthews will serve as a director for a term expiring at the Company’s 2022 annual meeting of stockholders and will also serve on the Company’s Corporate Governance Committee. The Board has determined that Ms. Matthews is an “independent director” under New York Stock Exchange rules.
Ms. Matthews, 62, currently serves as the Chief Reputation Officer for Amway Corp., overseeing the company’s global reputation strategy and brand, along with its corporate social responsibility and enterprise sustainability program. She currently serves on the board of directors for Herman Miller, Inc. and Société BIC S.A. and was previously a director for Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen Inc.
Ms. Matthews’s compensation for service on the Board and its committees will be consistent with that of other non-employee directors of the Company, as described in the Company’s definitive proxy statement with respect to its 2021 annual meeting of stockholders filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 26, 2021, except that beginning May 5, 2021, the annual equity award for non-employee directors was increased from $140,000 in grant date fair value to $150,000 in grant date fair value. There are no other arrangements or understandings between Ms. Matthews and any other person pursuant to which she was appointed as director, and Ms. Matthews is not a party to any transaction with the Company that would require disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
