AzPPA Welcomes Laura Munari As Its New Executive Director
The Arizona Promotional Products Association (AzPPA) has named Laura Munari to be its new executive director, effective immediately. She replaces Betsy Andrade, MAS, who is retiring.
Munari has been in the promotional products industry since 2010, working as a distributor sales representative before becoming the executive director of the Rocky Mountain Region Promotional Products Association (RMRPPA) in 2019.
The AzPPA Board of Directors extends its gratitude and well-wishes Andrade. She served in the executive director role for more than four years and had been a volunteer board member and past president of the association for several years prior to that. Andrade will stay on for the next few months to help facilitate a smooth transition.
Damon Subasa, MAS, of Peerless Umbrella and 2020 president of AzPPA, says, “We are proud to have Laura taking on the executive director role with AzPPA. She brings a wide variety of experience to the position, and we are looking forward to benefitting from her expertise.”
Munari adds, “It is an honor to affiliate with AzPPA in this new capacity. I am a strong believer in the benefits that the regional associations have to offer to their members, and hope to help the Arizona region become even stronger than it is today.”
