Sue Rothwell has been appointed to the newly created position of business development director to head up the European sales operation for Crain Communications Inc.'s Plastics News Global Group.
Rothwell began her career in 1986 selling classified advertising for Autocar & Motor magazine at Haymarket Media Group of London. After stints at the Printing Group, Institute of International Research, Newstec and Emap plc, she joins Crain from F&E, a family-run fairs and exhibitions firm working extensively throughout the Middle East.
Sue brings with her a wealth of experience across print, online and events, both in the [United Kingdom] and from an international perspective, said Steve Crowhurst, publishing and events director for PN Global Group in Europe. This is a perfect fit with our existing business and for our future growth plans. Having worked with Sue before I am excited about the undoubted talent, vision and skills she brings to our business.
