Olivia Pietersen Named Co-Chair of Packaging Distributors of America's Member Council

Crownhill Packaging is proud to announce Olivia Pietersen as Co-Chair of the newly created Member Council for Packaging Distributors of America, alongside Amy Packer of Hughes Enterprises.

The Member Council is responsible for identifying and developing programs that bring value to members of the Packaging Distributors of America. It implements programs that help PDA members expand their knowledge and expertise within the packaging industry. In addition, the Member Council works alongside the Supplier Council to establish new business relationships while enhancing existing ones.

Now with Crownhill for eight years, Olivia serves as the head of marketing and e-commerce. Her contributions to PDA have spanned several years, having been part of the PDA Branding Committee and receiving the PDA Presidents Award in 2017.

“I am thrilled and honored to Co-Chair the Inaugural PDA Member Council. I have long admired the goals and intentions of PDA, and I am excited to help craft ways for our members to take advantage of the unique knowledge and insight everyone brings to the organization.”

Olivia’s passion for marketing started early in her career. As a former strategic buyer for Hudson Bay, Olivia sold prestige brands such as Clinique, Estee Lauder, Christian Dior, and Armani. She’s been leading and expanding the digital marketing department at Crownhill Packaging for eight years and counting.

Olivia will be leading the Member Council alongside Amy Packer of Hughes Enterprises. Amy serves as the Director of Sales at Hughes, with over 25 years of experience with the company.

Amy’s contribution to PDA also spans many years. She is a current member of the Champion Group and a three-time recipient of the Champion of the Year Award. Before joining Hughes, Amy gained professional experience in sales, marketing, IT, and project management.

“I am beyond honored to be a part of the New Member Council and excited to bring value to the membership. PDA has always been a passion of mine; I am grateful to continue to learn and grow from this amazing group of professionals.”
