SPI's Carteaux touts heightened collaboration, advocacy for plastics


Anaheim, CA—True to its new mission statement, Bill Carteaux, president and CEO of the Society of the Plastics Industry (SPI; Washington, DC), stressed the trade group's commitment to end-of-life solutions for plastics during a Western Region trade luncheon held the same day SPI appointed a leader to its new recycling initiative.

Speaking on Feb. 13 at the Anaheim Marriott, Carteaux addressed a packed room, with many of those in attendance also participating in UBM Canon's collocated manufacturing shows, including Plastec West, at the adjacent Anaheim Convention Center (Feb. 12-14; UBM Canon is the parent company of PlasticsToday).

A few hours before Carteaux's presentation, SPI announced the appointment of Kim Holmes, most recently principal consultant at 4R Sustainability, where she served clients in the product manufacturing and recycling industries, to head up SPI's new recycling initiative. Prior to work at 4R, Holmes served as material supplier SABIC's advanced marketing manager, promoting its post-consumer recycled plastics portfolio.
