Plastics News has three new staffers, one each in the sales, data products and editorial departments.
On the sales side, Mark Malloy is joining the newspaper as a regional sales manager, covering the western Great Lakes, northern Plains and West Coast.
Malloy comes to PN from Wauconda, Ill.-based tooling components supplier Progressive Components International Corp., where he worked in a variety of roles including sales coordinator, sales and marketing manager and most recently general manager of Progressive's ToolingDocs division.
“Mark brings a wealth of industry sales and marketing experience to our group,” said PN advertising director J.A. Lewellen. “As a former buyer of media he has a unique perspective on how our products can best help PN advertisers to reach their customers and drive sales growth. 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.
Malloy works from his home in Grayslake, Ill. He can be reached at 847-752-8338 or [email protected] crain.com.
