Plastics News Global Group is announcing two staff additions. Plastics News has expanded its classified ad staff with the addition of a new sales representative, while sister publication European Plastics News has hired an assistant editor.
Victoria Zgorzelski is the new classified sales representative. She was previously an account executive on the national sales team with The Plain Dealer daily newspaper in Cleveland.
Her five years of newspaper industry experience also includes a stint at Adam's Street Publishing Co. in Toledo, Ohio, where she advanced to distribution manager.
Classified advertising continues to play an important role for PN, not only financially, but also in terms of readership and our role in the marketplace. We are very happy to add a high-energy person like Victoria, said Tony Eagan, vice president and group publisher of Plastics News Global Group.
Zgorzelski (pronounced Gore-zell-ski) has a bachelor's degree in communication from the University of Toledo. She replaces Jason Mitchell, who left PN in December to join Garrison Securities SA.
She is based at Plastics News' Akron headquarters, and will work for classified sales manager Ed Rich.
Zgorzelski's telephone number is 800-770-2801, ext. 6136, and her e-mail address is [email protected] crain.com.
The new assistant editor at European Plastics News is Charlotte Eyre. She joined the monthly magazine, which is based in Croydon, England, in April.
In the newly created position, Eyre will help develop the recently launched European Plastics News Web site as well as the established print product.
The addition of another full-time journalist to EPN's staff is further testament to our plan to maintain global leadership in plastics coverage both in print and online, Eagan said. Eyre's appointment brings the PNGG editorial total to 21 full-time staffers worldwide, not including several regular news correspondents.
Eyre previously worked at London-based StrategyEye, a digital-media-industry intelligence group, and before that wrote for Decision News Media, an online publisher of business news for the food-processing and -packaging industries, based in Montpelier, France.
She was graduated in French and linguistics from Oxford University, and she is fluent in French. She joins the existing European Plastics News editorial team of editor and conference manager Chris Smith, also based in Croydon, and senior editor David Vink, who is based near Dusseldorf, Germany.
Eyre's telephone number is 44-20-8253-9615 and her e-mail address is [email protected]
