Paul Bellantone, president and CEO of PPAI, will step down and conclude his service with the Association at the end of March 2021, marking the end of more than 20 years of employment.
“It has been a pleasure to serve and I am tremendously appreciative of the opportunities I have been given and for the relationships I have built during my time with PPAI,” Bellantone said. “It is no secret that this has been a challenging year for many, both personally and professionally. But with such challenges come opportunities to evolve and thrive. That’s why I believe this is not only the right time for me, but the best time for PPAI.”
Paul Bellantone notified the Board in late October of his intention to conclude his tenure before his next contract extension, which was set to begin on April 1, 2021.
PPAI Board Chair Ira Neaman, MAS, says, “The Board and countless others in the industry are so grateful for Paul’s many years of leadership and dedication to serve and engage the industry.
