The Board of Directors of the Private Label Manufacturers Association is pleased to announce that Peggy Davies has been named Acting President of the Association.

 “For four decades, Brian was the face of PLMA,” said Lisa Manzoline, Director of Sales for Reynolds Consumer Products and Chairman of the Board of Directors of PLMA. “It is now our responsibility to focus on the future. As the Board of Directors, we understand this is a difficult and challenging time for many different reasons. We have full confidence that Peggy Davies will be a capable and dynamic leader of PLMA at this crucial juncture – one who is familiar with our member base and the unique challenges we face for the remainder of 2020 and into 2021. Peggy has the experience and qualifications needed, and is 100% ready to carry forward the important work of the association from day one, as the Executive
Board conducts a search to determine a permanent successor.”

Commenting on her appointment, Davies said: “I’m honored and deeply grateful to the PLMA Executive Committee and Board of Directors for entrusting me with this tremendous responsibility. As we deal with Brian’s loss, we will best honor his decades-long legacy by carrying on his vision, which we have worked together to build on these last four years. I have been inspired by my close relationship with him for more than 25 years, and with our outstanding and dedicated staff, I am eager to carry forward the exceptional programs we created.”
