This is the first of two special “Live from TAPPICon” podcast episodes, each including four of our live mini-interviews from the 2021 event. Designed and run by working professionals in the industry, TAPPICon features multiple program tracks, an exhibit floor, networking events and more. Our guests for this episode are:
· Mike Grey, senior vice president at Valmet Inc., discussing technology, Resilience, and how both shape our industry;
· Earn Sakornpan, product manager at Cosasco, who tells us how corrosion monitoring helps his customers protect their valuable assets;
· Eric Blazej, national industrial sales manager at Proco, who tells us how their products help customers avoid catastrophic failure; and
· Jennifer Piercy, executive director, Pulp & Paper Advisory Board at NCSU, who shares her passion for helping talented students find their place in our industry.
These interviews capture only a fraction of the energy of TAPPICon. To experience it in person, mark your calendars for the TAPPICon 2022, which will be held May 1-5 in Charlotte, NC. Learn more at www.tappicon.org.
