PMA Relocates World Headquarters


Jackson, MI—PMA relocated its world headquarters to 2282 Springport Road, Suite F, Jackson, MI, 49202. The association’s phone numbers and website address remain unchanged.

“This new, more efficient headquarters will allow PMA to serve our members more effectively,” explained Jim Esp, executive director, PMA. “PMA is hitting the ground running with exciting upcoming events and programs, including this week’s Digital Conference at the Digital Show in Melbourne, NSW, Australia.”

“The PMA team is just about to the size it needs to be and with better space our ability to operate more efficiently improves,” added Allen Showalter, international president, PMA. “The new space is outstanding and more suitable to the size of our team.”

PMA had occupied its former 42,000-square-foot headquarters at 3000 Picture Place in Blackman Township since its construction in 1980. In January, the Jackson Community College Foundation announced it would purchase the 25-acre PMA headquarters site to establish a new North Campus for Jackson Community College.

In other PMA news, PMA International's CFO and COO, George Olsen, is taking an early retirement from the association to pursue interests outside the industry. Olsen will work as a consultant to PMA to ensure a smooth transition in leadership.

Olsen joined the association in 1986 as its director of Administrative Services. He was promoted to group executive in 1988, adding responsibilities in the Membership and Division Activities areas. In 2003, he was promoted to chief financial officer and in 2010 to chief operating officer.

Jim Esp, executive director, and the PMA board wish Olsen the very best in his new challenges and look forward to working with him in his role as consultant to PMA.
