Cindi Marsiglio, Walmart’s VP of U.S. manufacturing, will be the featured speaker at the SPI/IHS Key Market Breakfast Briefing during NPE2015, joining experts on the economy, energy, feedstocks and polymers. As part of her role, Marsiglio is charged with delivering on her company’s commitment to source an additional $250-billion worth of U.S.-made goods over 10 years.
The Key Market Breakfast Briefing will take place from 7:30 to 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 24, and is free to all registrants of NPE2015 (March 23-27, 2015; Orange County Convention Center; Orlando, Florida).
Marsiglio’s presentation will follow opening remarks by SPI President and CEO Bill Carteaux and a speech by Nick Vafiadis, global business director, polyolefins and plastics, for IHS. Subsequent presentations by seven IHS executives will focus on the U.S. economy, energy, ethylene and propylene feedstocks, and a range of high-volume and engineering thermoplastics.
Marsiglio, who joined Walmart in 2007, facilitates opportunities with current and new suppliers to boost purchases of U.S.-made goods. Prior to her current position, she was senior director of public affairs and government relations.
