The Board of Directors of the Private Label Manufacturers Association announced that Peggy Davies has been named acting president of the association. Her appointment follows the death of Brian Sharoff, president, who passed away last month after a brief illness. Since 2016, Davies served as PLMA vice president, association relations.

Davies joined PLMA as vice president in 2016. Before that she was elected to the board of directors in the early 1990s where, over the course of two terms, she either served on or chaired the programming, trade relations, and communications committees. She was elected board chairman for two terms from 2003 to 2004 and, among many other accomplishments, dedicated efforts toward expanding PLMA’s commitment to education for industry executives.
