In its press release, the association said, “We have lost an incredible leader, colleague and friend. Our hearts are broken to learn that PLASTICS’ President & CEO Bill Carteaux passed away early in the morning on December 10, due to complications from acute myeloid leukemia (AML), the disease he had been fighting with determination and courage. Bill was more than just an inspiring, larger-than-life leader for our industry; Bill was a dear friend to each of us who were lucky enough to know him.”
The association will share information about plans for a memorial service as soon as it becomes available. Condolences and remembrances to Bill’s family can be shared at firstname.lastname@example.org.
