The Plastics Pipe Institute Inc. is looking for a new president to succeed its leader of 13 years, Tony Radoszewski, who will begin work to head up the Plastics Industry Association in mid-September.
Irving, Texas-based PPI is seeking candidates with knowledge about plastics, pipe and key markets as well as how an association operates and is governed, according to Peter Zut, the chairman of PPI who is also a sales manager for KraussMaffei Corp. Ten years of experience in business management, strategic planning, execution, financial oversight -and personnel management is preferred.
"Our goal is to continue the work that Tony, his staff and our members have done during the past 13 years," Zut said in a news release. "During that time, PPI went through significant growth, building its reputation as a strong voice of our industry known for technical expertise, marketing programs and international advocacy."
PPI represents all segments of the plastic pipe industry and includes members associated with the production of mostly polyethylene and PVC pipe but also polypropylene and other materials.
About 10 people report to the PPI president, such as technical and engineering directors for a variety of divisions and end markets, like power and communication, energy, municipal and industrial, drainage, and building and construction.
The president's position is full time and requires significant business travel in the U.S. and abroad.
Radoszewski takes over as president and CEO of the Washington-based Plastics Industry Association on Sept. 16. He was selected on July 31 to succeed the late CEO Bill Carteaux, who headed the group from 2005 until his death in late 2018 following a three-year fight with leukemia.
