Adelaide-headquartered packaging company Detmold Group has announced Sascha Detmold Cox as its new CEO, effective immediately, after what it said was an “extensive recruitment process”.

Detmold Cox has worked at Detmold for over three decades, including in her current role as CEO of Detmold Medical. Executive Chair Rodney Detmold will assume the role of Acting CEO, Detmold Medical, to ensure business continuity.

Over Detmold Cox’s time at the company, she has worked across its business units globally, including several years based in Singapore.

The 75-year-old, family-owned Detmold business sells in 17 countries and manufactures in seven, with five Australian sites.

Besides its focus on supplying food and retail brands, the company contributed respirator and surgical masks to the South Australian and National Medical Stockpile during the height of the Covid pandemic.

“I’m passionate about the Detmold Group and our 3,000 people employed globally,” Detmold Cox said.

“The Detmold Group is proudly South Australian and we are growing our reach every day. As part of that, and in my role as CEO, I am committed to continuing the Detmold Group on its growth trajectory and making a positive impact for our people, our partners and our planet.”
