AKRON—Marc Pignataro has been hired to replace Dan Davis as vice president of sales and marketing at Harwick Standard Distribution Corp.
For the last 14 years, Pignataro worked first for Preferred Compounding Corp. and then Hexpol Compounding after it purchased Preferred in 2019. He most recently served as director of sales for the northern region.
"We are pleased to have Marc join Harwick," said Ernie Pouttu, president and CEO of Harwick Standard. "We are confident that Marc's background and experience will benefit our customers, principals and suppliers."
Prior to his most recent role with Hexpol, Pignataro worked in China for three years as president and general manager of Hexpol's joint venture there. Pignataro also has worked for SRC Worldwide Inc., Ferro Corp. and B.F. Goodrich Performance Materials.
Davis, who retired earlier this year, worked for Harwick for more than three decades, handling the duties now handed over to Pignataro.
Harwick Standard, a distributor of rubber, plastic and adhesive products, announced Pignataro's hire April 12.
