Ali Hite named society liaison for the Cleveland Coatings Society.

Palmer Holland is excited to announce that Ali Hite, Central Region Account Manager, has been elected to the board of the Cleveland Coatings Society (CCS) as the society liaison.  


As the society liaison, Hite will get valuable exposure to the society’s efforts. She is excited to provide innovative ideas and support to many areas of the organization, while learning from the veterans who have been involved in the industry and CCS roles extensively.  “I look forward to helping the society grow its presence locally and bringing value through creativity, marketing and networking, while also staying at the forefront of the industry changes,” said Hite.


Palmer Holland entered into a partnership with the Schey Sales Center at Ohio University six years ago. Since that time, Palmer Holland has hired seven graduates for its sales certificate program. “It is important that a company such as ours, which has been in business for 90 years as an independently owned chemical distribution company, continually adapts to our marketplace. This includes staying relevant with our sales team,” said Mark Riemann, Vice President of Sales at Palmer Holland.


The CCS has seen an increase in attendance and participation over the past few years. “As I continue to immerse myself in the local coatings industry, I decided getting more involved with the local industry efforts could facilitate deeper connections within the industry network to build stronger relationships,” said Hite.


“Not only are we are developing first class account managers through a multi-year training program, but we are also cultivating young industry leaders. These young executives are all about ‘giving back’ and contributing to our industry. Ali has shown great ability to immerse herself within the industry and effectively support the Cleveland Coatings Society,” said Riemann.


Hite was elected to the position for a three-year term beginning in the summer of 2015. Some of the duties of the society liaison include representing the CCS at local and national meetings and supporting the initiatives of the annual goals set forth by the board members of the CCS.
