The Contract Packaging Association has a new managing director, and he's a name familiar to the PET packaging industry.
Ron Puvak, formerly of Plastic Technologies Inc. of Holland, Ohio, has been appointed, effective immediately, to his new position at the CPA.
He spent 11 years at PTI as director of marketing and new business development, a position that saw him often as the public face for the company.
"Ron's multidiscipline experience in the packaging sector and previous association experience makes him uniquely qualified to lead CPA's initiatives," said CPA Board Chairman Tim Koers in a statement.
"Having spearheaded projects for brand owners, machinery manufacturers and material suppliers his entire career, he will help take CPA to the next level by continuing to mold it around the needs of its members, associates and the greater packaging community," Koers continued.
The Oakbrook Terrace, Ill.-based association's members include contract packagers and manufacturers as well as companies that provide support services to the industry.
