The Chesapeake Promotional Products Association (CPPA) has announced that Tiffany Kanak will serve as the association’s new executive director. Kanak brings several years of experience to the role, ranging from the membership and financial/accounting industries to promotional products. The association’s former executive director, Dana Geiger, left the position earlier this year to join PPAI as regional relations manager.

CPPA Board President Bob Titleman, Jr., says, “Dana did a wonderful job for CPPA, and while we were sad to see her go, we are grateful for her years of service and wish her all the best in her future endeavors. She will be a valuable asset to PPAI and all of the regional affiliates. At the same time, we are thrilled to welcome Tiffany as our new executive director. Her experience, leadership, and strong background are assets to the organization which makes her a perfect fit for our group.”

As CPPA executive director, Kanak will work with the board of directors and membership to develop a comprehensive strategic plan, which includes fundraising, communications, trade show enterprises, strategic partnerships and support of PPAI initiatives. She owned a distributorship from 1997 until 2008, and she currently serves as the executive director for Promotional Products Association of the Midwest.
