The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies (PMMI) has announced the promotions of Jim Pittas and Katie Bergmann, both to the role of senior vice president. Bergmann, who first came to PMMI in 2007, most recently served as the organization’s vice president of Administration. Pittas joined PMMI as director of Expositions in 2000; he was promoted to vice president of Trade Shows in 2006.
Charles D. Yuska, president and CEO of PMMI, credits Bergmann and Pittas with the expansion of the group’s PACK EXPO portfolio of trade shows. The PACK EXPO International and Pharma EXPO 2014 event is currently underway in Chicago. “Our growth and successes are, in large part, due to both Katie and Jim’s efforts,” says Yuska. “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.”
