AKRON, OHIO (Aug. 2, 1:15 p.m. ET) — Plastics News has three new staffers, one each in the sales, data products and editorial departments.

“Mark brings a wealth of industry sales and marketing experience to our group,” said PN advertising director J.A.

Mark’s perspective and industry knowledge will be a great asset to his customers and the PN team.”

Malloy is assuming a sales territory formerly covered by Lewellen, who now assumes responsibility for the eastern Midwest territory including western New York and Pennsylvania, Ohio and Ontario.
