"Karen has a strong track record of growing revenue, while maintaining high team engagement and motivation, and has been incredibly successful in the management of our Americas business," said Donald E.

"As West enters a very exciting period of anticipated growth, the Board and I are confident in Karen's ability to serve as one of our company's key business leaders."

Karen Flynn brings more than 28 years of experience to this role. Most recently, she held the position of President, Americas Region, Pharmaceutical Packaging Systems, where she was responsible for the Americas regional business segment, including both the manufacturing and commercial aspects of the business.

From 2000 to 2008, Flynn was a part of Catalent (formerly known as a division of Cardinal Health), where she worked in Sales Management, finishing her career there as Vice President, Global Accounts. Prior to Catalent, Flynn spent 15 years at West, in roles spanning Quality, R&D, Technical Services and Sales. In 2008, she rejoined West as Vice President, Sales, Americas.
