CPA, The Association for Contract Packagers and Manufacturers, is pleased to announce the CPA officers for the period of July 2019 through June 2021.

Mark O’Malley, president at Paket Corporation, will assume the position of CPA president and Tim Koers will become the immediate past president. The position of vice president will be held by Patty Dodson, director of Southwestern Fundraising Corp, Southwestern Corporation; and serving as the treasurer will be Jon Hayward, vice president, Bonded Pac LLC.

“Over the last few years, CPA has truly morphed,” says O’Malley. “We are not the same association of just a few years ago. The industry is changing and to avoid being left behind, take advantage of all the CPA has to offer. We have seen our membership grow and the retention rate improve dramatically. Our new association with PMMI this past year brings ever more resources to our members. I am looking forward to watching CPA continue this upward momentum.”

“To further resonate Mark’s earlier comments, CPA has and continues to evolve within its industry,” says Koers. “To compete in a real time world, we need a real time Association that supports its members. I am not only confident in Mark’s ability to continue modernizing our group but more importantly excited to see the outcome! I am looking forward to supporting him and the entire BOD and association membership as the immediate past president.”

Other CPA directors who were recently elected to the board include Jerry Thompson, president, Combined Technologies Inc.; Nikki Johnson, executive vice president, Kala and Tom Landry, president, Allegiance Staffing. Each will serve a two-year term as director.
