IPI Announces Leadership Changes
Henderson, NV (March 28, 2014) -- The IPI Board of Directors has named Ron Mohney as IPI's Executive Director. Ron Mohney has a proven track record serving as Director of Supplying Partner operations at IPI since 2010 and adds the Executive duties effective immediately. Brent Bowyer, IPI's previous Executive Director, has resigned to pursue other opportunities.
Speaking for the Board of Directors of IPI, Chairman Larry Steiner said, "The Board wishes to thank Brent for his many years of dedicated service and we wish him well in his new pursuits. We are very confident that IPI's exceptional staff has the vision, passion and determination to execute at the high level our members expect as IPI builds on and extends our past successes."
In addition, IPI is pleased to announce the continued assistance of current Board member Neil Hoversten beyond the expiration of his board term at the end of May 2014 as IPI's Key Supply Partner Advocate. While Hoversten cannot serve as a voting board member after reaching the mandatory six year Board term limit, he has agreed to continue to assist and advise the IPI Board and staff in this role. Hoversten remains the Chairman of the Key Supplying Partner Committee, and will serve on other future committees. IPI is very fortunate to retain Hoversten and benefit from his years of experience in the industry, as well as his insights with IPI as an organization.
Steiner continued, "Having had a sneak peek at revolutionary program additions that will be announced at our upcoming annual conference, IPIC, I am excited about the coming innovations that the entire IPI team is developing for the membership. Keeping experience on board while extending member services refreshes and expands our enthusiasm for the IPI mission."
