The Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI) announced that Mark Tibbetts is stepping down as president in October. In announcing this transition, TLMI chairman Craig Moreland cited differences in the long-term vision for the organization.
Moreland continued: 'Mark and I both recognize that finding a new president is best for TLMI. Mark will continue on for the next six months to assist in the transition. We deeply appreciate Mark’s leadership during this time and his contributions to TLMI. Mark has developed a strong operational foundation and a new strategic plan on which to grow. We wish him the best in his next endeavor.'
Tibbetts started his role in January 2016. One of his duties had been implementing the association's three-year strategic plan, which was released late last year and outlines the future of the organization. The change also comes more than a year after TLMI moved its headquarters to Alexandria, Virginia, and hired a new three-person staff.
