The Washington-based Plastics Industry Association has hired an executive search firm to help it find a new president and CEO to replace Bill Carteaux, its former leader who died of leukemia in December.

In a statement, the Washington, D.C.-based Plastics Industry Association – or PLASTICS for short – has said it has engaged the firm of Heidrick & Struggles International Inc., which is headquartered in Chicago, to lead the search for its next leader, and that Heidrick & Struggles “are working to develop a rigorous and in-depth protocol that will be used in the search and selection” of the right individual.

People wishing to be considered a candidate for this position should contact Julian Ha at, PLASTICS said.


Since Carteaux’s death on Dec. 10, PLASTICS has been led by Interim president and CEO Patty Long, who had been the association’s second-ranking executive.
