ROLLING PRAIRIE, Ind.—Otech Corp. and Color Resource L.L.C., a wholly owned subsidiary of Otech, have promoted Greg Gitto as national accounts manager and marketing director and Nick Semenza as general manager.

Gitto will serve in his posts at both Otech and Color Resource, and Semenza will be working strictly with Color Resource.

Otech said Gitto will continue to head sales at Color Resource, but he also will be focusing on developing business opportunities in the PVC compound-related products markets, as well as the color concentrate markets, alongside James Grimley, Otech vice president of sales.

"Strategically, this is a game changer for Otech," CEO Jack O'Donnell said. "Greg brings more than 30 years of sales experience in plastics plus a combined 12 years of ownership of color concentrate companies to our management team. His creativity and expertise will be fully utilized in our continued development and growth as a market leader."

Semenza joins Color Resource with more than 40 years of experience in plastics compounding, including extrusion and injection molding processes, product development and cost reduction.

"This shift in responsibilities will be an enormous benefit to the continued growth of both companies," O'Donnell said.

Gitto said the company's new line of XLPE vibrant colors line—Quasar XL—is "gaining traction in the wire industry, so the timing could not be better for this change."
