The final results are in for PPAI’s Board of Directors
election. The Association welcomes new board members Bruce Perryman, MAS+, CEO
of supplier Embroidery Unlimited, Inc., and Mary Jo Tomasini, CAS, CEO of
distributor CE Competitive Edge, LLC. In addition, David Nicholson, president
of supplier Polyconcept North America, parent company to Leed’s, Bullet and
Journalbooks/Timeplanner Calendars, has been appointed to the PPAI board to
fill the inaugural at-large director seat with full voting rights.
The new board members will begin their terms immediately
following The PPAI Expo 2014. Perryman and Tomasini will serve four-year terms,
while Nicholson’s term is for two years. The at-large director seat is part of
the Board of Directors restructure and bylaws changes announced to members in
April 2012. Nicholson was selected from a field of distributors, suppliers,
multiline reps, business services, international suppliers and international
distributors, and he was nominated by a committee consisting of the PPAI board
chair, chair-elect and immediate past chair.
