Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) appointed Belinda Wise to secretary/treasurer of the PMI Board of Directors and Lowell Lampen as a new board member.

The director of business development, North America, for Kerox, Ltd., Wise succeeds Cambria McLeod, a long-time employee of a PMI manufacturing member who is stepping down as part of a planned career transition. According to the PMI bylaws, only individuals who are employed by PMI manufacturing members can serve on the board. New board member Lampen is a strategic technical partnership manager at Kohler Co. who has served as the co-chair of the PMI Advocacy/Government Affairs Committee for the past four years.

Other members include board president Sal Gattone, LIXIL; immediate past board president Martin Knieps, Viega LLC; board vice president Chip Way, Lavelle Industries; and at-large directors Kevin Campbell, Moen, Inc.; Daniel Gleiberman, Sloan Valve Co.; and Bob Neff, Delta Faucet Co. 

“We welcome Belinda and Lowell to their new responsibilities and thank Cambria for her dedicated service to the board and as an active PMI member these past many years,” Gattone stated. “We encourage all PMI members to follow their example as volunteer leaders. Your participation will make our association stronger and more effective.”
