Jeannine Gibson, PMMI’s new Trade Show Marketing Director, is ready, willing and very able to take PACK EXPO success to new heights.
 
Reston, Va.; Feb. 19, 2013 — PMMI, the owner and producer of the PACK EXPO trade shows, is pleased to welcome Jeannine Gibson as director of trade show marketing. 
 
An accomplished marketing communications professional, Gibson’s career has been marked by high energy and innovation. Her experience includes over seven years with the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) and its Supermarket Industry Convention; as well as for-profit entities such as SmartBrief and Infocus Marketing.
 
“It was clear from the first glance at her résumé that Jeannine had the background and understanding to keep PACK EXPO on a strong path forward. When we met her, we quickly realized her abilities went even deeper,” says Jim Pittas, vice president, Trade Shows, PMMI. 
 
Gibson and AJ Janosko, PMMI director of expositions, are the show department’s newest team members and together guide both sides of the PACK EXPO equation: customers and exhibitors. Pittas says Gibson’s attitutde made her the right fit.
 
“Jeannine’s extraordinary energy sealed the deal. PACK EXPO team members have to have proven track records, and they also have to go above and beyond what’s expected. That’s Jeannine in a nutshell — and her enthusiasm is contagious. She’s a real asset to PACK EXPO and PMMI,” Pittas says.
 
“PACK EXPO enjoys some serious name recognition! It’s a premier trade show,” Gibson says, noting that she’s known of the show and its reputation since her time with the FMI. “And when you get a chance to be part of the best in a category, you take it. I’m excited to be part of this team, and using the skills I’ve developed throughout my career to take PACK EXPO to a new level of excellence.”
 
Gibson has a Bachelor of Arts degree (with honors) in English and Political Science from the University of Rochester (Rochester, NY). She lives Warrenton, Va., with her husband and family.
