PLASA has announced the latest changes to its Board, which sees Koy Neminathan join as the manufacturer’s representative and Matt Lloyd appointed as vice-chair. These changes were voted for by PLASA manufacturer members and Board members respectively, and the terms began at the beginning of 2019.
Koy Neminathan, the sales director for Avolites, will represent the best interests of manufacturers from all sectors. His experience of working at all levels within a major brand provides him with the practical skills and in-depth knowledge to ensure that manufacturers are supported and understood on a wide range of issues. “PLASA has the strength and power to assist manufacturers, allowing them to grow in every aspect,” said Neminathan. “I look forward to being a part of that by building new and long lasting relationships with manufacturers and communicating their concerns back to the association.”
Former manufacturer’s representative and well-known industry figure, Matt Lloyd has moved to the role of vice-chair. Lloyd’s expertise come from his vast experience within the industry which includes being the co-founder of GDS. Meanwhile, previous vice-chair, Martin Hawthorn is stepping down after 10 years of serving with the Board but will continue to work closely with PLASA across the association’s activities and events.
Elsewhere on the PLASA Board, Dave Crump, president of Creative Technology has been re-elected as rental and production representative, and all other members remain in their current positions.
