“I am pleased to announce that these highly-qualified board candidates have volunteered to run for the PPAI Board of Directors,” says PPAI President and CEO Paul Bellantone, CAE. “Each is an accomplished leader with invaluable experience and shares PPAI’s commitment to advancing the Association and the promotional products industry.”

PPAI’s board is comprised of exceptional volunteer leaders who contribute their time and talents to guide the success of the Association and the industry. I encourage each member company’s voting designee to get to know the candidates and cast their ballot.”
