Office Manager

PPEC (Paper & Paperboard Packaging Environmental Council)

As the office manager for PPEC I keep the office running on behalf of two Executive Directors for two Associations such as keeping costs in line with the budget and taking advantage of changing technology to find cost savings in equipment and supplies.

I create and maintain an image library to go with the five websites I am responsible for. I also update and edit four other websites soon to be brought down to only two as we are collapsing three grade (bags, corrugated and paper boxes) into one.
