PPMA names Andrew Stark as its new chief operating officer

06 May, 2014

The PPMA Group, which represents the UK’s processing and packaging industry, has appointed Andrew Stark as its new chief operating officer. Stark has a sales and marketing background and has spent the past nine years in the processing and packaging industry working for Multivac in several different roles. Earlier, he worked in IT and outsourced professional services in London’s Docklands.

“We are very pleased that Andrew Stark has accepted the PPMA Group board’s offer to become chief operating officer,” says PPMA chairman, Richard Little. “Andrew has many years experience of the packaging machinery market, including in-depth knowledge of end-users and the supply chain.

“Andrew will add value to the already excellent PPMA team and allow us to build on our rapid progress in developing our PPMA Show and related events,” he adds, “and also facilitate the introduction of new strategic initiatives such as the PPMA Best (business, education, skills and training) programme.”

Stark: a milestone year

Stark says he is “delighted” to be joining the PPMA Group. “This is a milestone year for the Association as we bring the PPMA Show back in-house again and take on the challenge of setting up our new educational charity, Best,” he continues. “I am very much looking forward to working with all the PPMA team and the board of directors, and to meeting many of our members throughout the rest of the year.”
