Paper Pak Industries Inc., the La Verne, Calif.-based manufacturer of absorbent pads for the food and medical industries, has named Bob Bova to head a new business initiatives staff.

Formerly the company’s Midwest region sales manager, Bova now is vice president of business development, according to a news release.

“Bob has a keen understanding of food safety issues and a strong track record of successfully developing new products and systems in the food industry,” Ron Jensen, president and chief executive officer, said in the release.

The creation of the business initiatives staff within the sales and marketing department follows completion of expansions and technological upgrades at the company’s two U.S. plants in La Verne and in Washington, Ga.
