The global manufacturer of aerosol dispensers has announced Dave Murphy as its new Sales Director in North America.

Dave Murphy has taken up the position based at the company’s Indiana facility following 15 years in senior sales, business development and customer relationship leadership roles in the packaging sector. Previously holding posts at Amcor, Essentra, DS Smith and Huhtamaki, he has led teams within a broad spectrum of market sectors from food and pharmaceutical, to medical, consumer and household. Possessing a B.Sc. degree in Economics, Mr. Murphy more recently secured a Master of Business Administration from the esteemed Purdue University.

The new appointment marks the replacement of Alex Piagnarelli, who, instead of opting for full time retirement following a successful 8 years in the role, will assume a part-time position as Lindal North America’s Business Development Director, commencing in February 2022. Over the coming months, Alex Piagnarelli and Dave Murphy will be working together to ensure a seamless transition.

We are looking forward to Dave bringing his experience as a results-driven leader and implementor of innovative sales strategies to the LNA team. His experience and capabilities in customer relationship development, sales process management and new business acquisition will be a real asset to the group,” said Lindal Group Sales Director, Phil Lever.
