Vice President, Product Line Management, Innovation and Sustainability, Avery Dennison Apparel Solutions
Part seasoned global executive, part “ideas guy,” Mike Colarossi, Vice President of Product Line Management, Innovation and Sustainability for the Apparel Division of Avery Dennison's $1.2B Retail Branding and Information Solutions (RBIS), leads a global technical innovation team whose products deliver double-digit revenue and enhance performance.
A driving force behind RBIS innovation, Mike advances the premise that innovation is the key to achieving lasting impact across an apparel landscape where garment labeling solutions must shape the industry’s future while meeting the current needs of businesses, consumers and the environment (without sacrificing relevancy). He ensures the company’s solutions for the apparel and footwear industry rise to that challenge. Mike was instrumental in developing both Avery Dennison’s 2025 sustainability goals and the RBIS ADX Labs, global innovation experience centers, located in Norway, Italy, and soon, China.
Mike joined Avery Dennison in 2013 and during his tenure has held leadership positions in innovation, operations and global supply chain management. Before joining the company, Mike held various manufacturing and engineering positions in the U.S. and China.
