Officials for Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) announced today the passing of Bill Carteaux. Carteaux, who was the association’s president and chief executive officer, passed in the early morning hours of complications associated with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a disease that PLASTICS officials say he fought, “with determination and courage.”

“We have lost an incredible leader,” reads an association statement. “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.”

Information regarding a memorial service will be shared as details are made available. In the meantime, association officials invite condolences for Carteaux’s family, which can be shared at: rememberingbill@plasticsindustry.org.
