(NYSE: ATR), a global leader in drug delivery, consumer product dispensing and active material science solutions and services, today announced that Candace Matthews has been elected independent chairperson of the company’s Board of Directors, effective immediately following the company’s 2023 annual meeting of stockholders on May 3, 2023.
