Noah Lapine Elected To PPAI Board; Election To Reopen October 5

The recent PPAI Board of Directors election resulted in the approval of the distributor nominee, Noah Lapine, president and owner of distributor Lapine Associates, Inc., who will begin his four-year term in January 2021. However, the supplier nominee did not garner the requisite number of votes for approval. As a result, PPAI governance requires the presentation of a second nominee in the same membership category for the membership’s consideration.

Andrew Spellman, senior vice president and general manager at supplier The Magnet Group, has been recommended by the Elected Directors Nominating Committee and approved by the PPAI Board of Directors, as the alternate supplier director for the 2021-2025 term, based on the skillset he will bring to the board.

The voting member of each PPAI member company will have an opportunity to approve this recommendation. The board election will reopen October 5 and run through October 20, and the results of the vote will be announced in late October.

PPAI is hosting a town hall-style webinar on October 1 to give members an opportunity to get to know Spellman. It will run from 10 am – 11 am CT and will be available afterward for on-demand viewing. Click here for more information and to register for the webinar.
