Prime Line CEO Rick Brenner Appointed to International Consumer Product Health & Safety Organization Board
Brenner's appointment to the board of directors marks the first time a member of the promotional products community has had a presence in ICPHSO's governing body. Since the organization has participation from the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), global corporations, and associations that determine voluntary compliance standards, Brenner will be able to introduce the industry's platform to some of strongest influencers in product safety.
"The ICPHSO board is an exciting opportunity for several reasons," he said. "It gives our industry more visibility to showcase the great strides we've made in product safety management, it gives us the opportunity to improve by learning how product safety is managed by experts in other industries and from other countries, and it gives us the opportunity to give back—to make contributions that can help others as ICPHSO and its many programs has helped us. It's the only way that organizations like ICPHSO become great and stay that way—by giving back as much as you get. It's a great honor to be in the company of such accomplished professionals as my colleagues on the ICPSHO board."
Brenner, who also serves on the PPAI board of directors, will serve an initial three-year term on ICPSHO's board effective immediately. His next meeting with the board will be at the ICPHSO 2013 Annual Meeting and Training Symposium in Arlington, Va. later this month.
