FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PMMI and PACK EXPO — Two New Sr. Vice Presidents

Reston, Va.; Nov. 1, 2014 — PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, owner and producer of the PACK EXPO portfolio of trade shows, is pleased to announce the promotion of two staff members, Katie Bergmann and Jim Pittas, to senior vice president.

These promotions occured just days before the opening of PACK EXPO International and the debut of Pharma EXPO (McCormick Place, Chicago: Nov. 2–5, 2014).

The recent acquisition of Summit Media Group’s digital platform, a complement to PMMI’s strategic plan, and the expansion of the PACK EXPO portfolio of trade shows, can both be attributed to Bergmann and Pittas.

“Katie has excelled in the management of the Summit Media Group acquisition and under Jim’s leadership, PMMI has been able to further expand the PACK EXPO portfolio of trade shows — EXPO PACK Guadalajara, Pharma EXPO and PACK EXPO East,” says Charles D. Yuska, president and CEO, PMMI. “Our growth and successes are, in large part, due to both Katie and Jim’s efforts.”

Bergmann came to PMMI in 2007, and most recently served as PMMI’s vice president of Administration, while Pittas came to PMMI as Director of Expositions in 2000, and was promoted to vice president of Trade Shows in 2006. 

“Jim is dedicated to giving our exhibitors and attendees a first-class trade show experience at every event we produce. We look forward to PACK EXPO’s continued growth and success under Jim’s guidance and we know Katie will continue to lead the administrative side of the organization to new heights,” adds Yuska.
