Promotional Products Professionals of Canada restructures
Montreal-based Promotional Products Professionals of Canada has undertaken a restructuring initiative under which the organization will assign management of the association to Strauss Event & Association Management of Winnipeg. As part of the initiative, Jonathan Strauss has been appointed president and CEO of the PPPC. The PPPC will close its office on Nov. 1. Gladys Kasp, currently communications and planning manager of the association, will become general manager of the PPPC at that time.
"As interim president for the past nine months, Jonathan has led the revitalization of our association," said Heidi Reimer-Epp, PPPC board chair. "It has been a difficult decision to close our office but Jonathan's firm has an outstanding track record of success in improving the cost efficiencies and member benefits for many leading Canadian associations. We are excited to be embarking on this next chapter for PPPC under his leadership."
