- November 19, 2003, PRESS RELEASE
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA —Paperloop CEO Ian Johnston reports management changes within the company's Community Products division, the part of the organization that operates CMM International and Tissue World Events.
According to a Paperloop release, effective immediately, the new management team will be comprised of Johnston; Ronni Potosky, marketing director; Ria Van Den Bogaert, European sales director; and Roger Halligan, industry consultant and CEO of H+A International.
Johnston adds that Halligan—"a well-known industry marketing authority"—will play a key role in assisting the new, recently announced managment team.
"We are delighted to have Roger play such a critical role with our new team," says the Paperloop CEO. "He knows many of the key players in the converting and packaging industry and will be instrumental in helping up make a great group of shows even better."
The previous management team of VP Leo Nadolske, show director Jane McDermott, and sales director Jay Gorga are leaving Paperloop effective November 21. Paperloop says McDermott and Gorga are leaving to join a show-management company to help launch a new trade show in the consumer cosmetics industry, and Nadolske is leaving to pursue other opportunities.
Says Johnston, "Leo, Jane, and Jay have been instrumental in helping CMM Community Products achieve the industry-leading positions they enjoy today. They are very well respected within the converting marketplace, and we wish them much success in their new endeavors. At the same time, we are very excited about some new enhancements and strategic alliances that we will be announcing soon for CMM Community Products."
Paperloop says the new management team will be supported by members of the existing CMM International and Tissue World sales and operational teams. Visit Paperloop at paperloop.com.
