AKRON, OHIO-Plastics News has promoted Linda Whelan to the newly created position of marketing manager. Whelan joined the Akron-based publication as promotions manager in November 1988, prior to its March 1989 launch. Plastics News' popular jungle and fishing themes at the triennial International Plastics Exposition in Chicago also were her brainchild.
``Linda's creative and organizational skills have proved instrumental in developing Plastics News' unique identity, and contributed greatly to the publication's steady growth,''said Publisher Tony Eagan.
In addition to her current promotional responsibilities, Whelan will become more deeply involved in all sales and marketing efforts, both with readers and advertisers.
