Global aerosol dispensing designer and manufacturer LINDAL Group has announced Dave Murphy as its new Sales Director in North America.
Murphy has taken up the position based at the company’s Indiana facility following 15 years in senior sales, business development and customer relationship leadership roles in the packaging sector. Previously holding posts at Amcor, Essentra, DS Smith and Huhtamaki, he has led teams within a broad spectrum of market sectors from food and pharmaceutical, to medical, consumer and household.
Possessing a B.Sc. degree in Economics, Murphy more recently secured a Master of Business Administration from Purdue University.
“I am excited to be joining LINDAL Group, at an important time in the aerosol industry,” said Murphy.
“Additionally, I look forward to working with Alex [Piagnarelli] and the entire team at LINDAL North America to grow our business and deliver an exceptional service to our customers.”
The new appointment marks the replacement of Alex Piagnarelli, who, instead of opting for full time retirement following a successful eight years in the role, will assume a part–time position as LINDAL North America’s Business Development Director, commencing in February 2022. Over the coming months, Piagnarelli and Murphy will be working together to ensure a seamless transition.
LINDAL Group Sales Director, Phil Lever, noted, “We are looking forward to Dave bringing his experience as a results–driven leader and implementor of innovative sales strategies to the LNA team. His experience and capabilities in customer relationship development, sales process management and new business acquisition will be a real asset to the group.
“Alex has brought great successes to LNA and his desire to continue at
LINDAL is not only testament to his commitment to the company, but presents us
with the prime opportunity to focus his expertise and 30 years+ experience in the
packaging industry on business development–oriented activities. This move adds
greater strength to achieving our sales, profitability and growth targets at LINDAL
North America,” Lever concluded.
