“Tony Anderson’s deep financial expertise and extensive experience advising multinational businesses will serve Avery Dennison well,” says Dean Scarborough, Avery Dennison chairman, president and CEO. “He is also a highly effective business leader, and we welcome his perspective.”

In addition to leading the Midwest region, Anderson’s Ernst & Young career includes six years in the Los Angeles area as managing partner of the firm’s Pacific Southwest region.

A former director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Anderson currently serves on the boards of directors of AAR Corporation and First American Financial Corporation. An active civic leader, he is also a director of The Chicago Council on Global Affairs, World Business Chicago and the Chicago Urban League, of which he is chairman of the board.
