Paul Coulson to step down as AMP chairman

Leading metal-packaging supplier Ardagh has announced chairman, Paul Coulson, will step down from the role in November 2023. 

The move will see current director of metal packaging, Herman Troskie, succeed Mr Coulson as chairman of Ardagh Group S.A and its ultimate parent company ARD Holdings S.A. 

Mr Coulson has been Chairman of Ardagh Group since 1998, leading its development from a single-plant glass operation in Dublin with annual revenue of approximately $50 million, to a global player in sustainable glass and metal packaging with annualised revenues of more than $9 billion. 

Mr Coulson will remain a Director of Ardagh Metal Packaging, Ardagh Group and ARD Holdings, and will remain the controlling shareholder of ARD Holdings.

Ardagh’s incoming chairman, Herman Troskie, is currently a director of Ardagh Metal Packaging, Ardagh Group and ARD Holdings. He will succeed Paul Coulson as chairman of all three companies and will join Ardagh on a full-time basis in November. 

Based in Luxembourg, Mr Troskie will step down from his current role as CEO of Corporate, Legal and Tax Advisory at Stonehage Fleming, an international family office. He has been a director of Ardagh Group since 2009 and has been closely involved with the growth and development of the Group since then.

Mr Troskie is also a director of companies within the Yeoman group of companies, and other private and public companies. He qualified as a South African Attorney in 1997, and as a Solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales in 2001.
