Tiberio has extensive expertise in strategic planning, brand management and design, and she is a seasoned events and marketing leader with vast experience in strategic content development, program analysis and innovative campaign execution.
In her new role, Tiberio will oversee the development and execution of marketing and communications plans for APPA and its value-generating initiatives. She will evaluate and set strategies to effectively promote APPA’s programs and will be responsible for creating messaging and marketing strategies for Global Pet Expo, the association’s annual trade show presented in conjunction with the Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA).
“We are thrilled to have Diane on board with the APPA team. Her previous experience, coupled with her enthusiasm and deep background in traditional and digital marketing will be a true asset to the Association as we move into a new decade,” said King. “On behalf of the APPA board and staff, we welcome Diane and look forward to working together to further advance the Association and our marketing efforts.”
