Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers;
Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On August 6, 2014, Henry J. Theisen announced his plans to retire as President and Chief Executive Officer of Bemis Company, Inc. (the "Company") effective August 7, 2014. On August 7, 2014, the Board of Directors of the Company elected William F. Austen as President and Chief Executive Officer, and a member of the Board of Directors for a term expiring at the 2015 annual meeting of shareholders of the Company (the "2015 Annual Meeting"), effective immediately. Mr. Theisen will continue serving as Executive Chairman of the Board of the Company until the 2015 Annual Meeting.

Mr. Austen, 55, has been the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company since November 7, 2013. Prior to that, he was Group President from 2012 to 2013, Vice President - Operations from 2004 to 2012, and President and Chief Executive Officer - Morgan Adhesives Company from 2000 to 2004.

In connection with Mr. Austen's appointment as President and Chief Executive Officer, the Compensation Committee increased Mr. Austen's base salary to $900,000, increased his target annual cash incentive opportunity to 110% of base salary and granted him 20,145 additional time-based share units and 20,145 additional performance-based share units, each having the same terms as the awards granted to executive officers on January 2, 2014.

In Mr. Theisen's continuing role as Executive Chairman of the Board, his compensation will remain the same as currently in effect through the end of fiscal 2014. In 2015, Mr. Theisen's compensation will be changed to reflect his modified role in the Company.

A copy of the press release announcing this management change is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
