Before joining PPC, Mackin was managing executive, president and CEO of several private equity-owned firms, where he was responsible for the operating results of several acquisitions and divestitures in the consumer packaged goods sector.
During that time, he was president of MaMa Rosa’s LLC – the largest branded, refrigerated pizza company in the country – where he doubled sales from $40 million to $80 million in four years.
“Bill was an exceptional leader at MaMa Rosa’s, and we are fortunate to have him leading the PPC team,” says John T. Stout, Jr., chairman of Plaza Belmont Management Group, the majority owner of MaMa Rosa’s from 2006 to 2011. Plaza Belmont also is an investor/owner of PPC.
“Bill is decisive, results driven, competitive and disciplined,” Stout says. “He is a fact-based leader who develops practical and innovative solutions, focuses on details and follows through to ensure execution and desired results.”
Mackin will use his extensive experience in sales, operations, manufacturing, safety and team building to strengthen PPC’s position as a high-quality, value-conscious flexographic printer and converter serving leading manufacturers and markets. Under Mackin’s leadership, PPC will focus on product innovation and operational improvements.
