As part of the board, Garvin will provide leadership and strategic guidance and serve as an adviser to DPI’s CEO and executive team.
“We welcome James to the board and look forward to his contributions as we grow the company,” says James Dow, Chairman of the Board at Diversified Plastics, Inc. “His well-rounded background in management, operations, business development and quality makes him ideally suited to help guide the company.”
