WPC2011

I’m excited to present because I have found the Principia conference to be one of the most important annual meetings for this business to discuss market trends, supply chain dynamics and future demand.

Principia Partners announces that Jim Daniels, VP of Product Development for Parksite, will give the keynote speech at its eighth annual executive conference WPC 2011 – Decking and Outdoor Living Products. The Conference will be held at the Charlotte Marriott City Center in Charlotte, North Carolina on October 3-4, 2011. This Principia conference has become the premier industry event for WPCs and other decking and railing materials.

Mr. Daniels will set the stage for the conference theme of growing the decking and railing business. He anticipates a productive gathering. “I’m excited to present because I have found the Principia conference to be one of the most important annual meetings for this business to discuss market trends, supply chain dynamics and future demand," he said. "It’s also a great networking opportunity.”

Steve Van Kouteren, Conference Chair, is equally optimistic. "The entire decking and railing value chain is represented at a Principia Conference. This allows executives in all parts of the chain to gain understanding and insights from the others. This interaction helps build the overall industry by improving communications, debating important issues and forging alliances; all in an effort to advance the growth in demand.” Mr. Van Kouteren says "program has a litany of “Who’s Who” of the decking and railing business including the top manufacturers, wholesalers, dealers and contractors.” The full agenda and conference details are posted at PrincipiaConferences.com.

Jim Daniels brings over 40 years of experience in the building industry to his speaking role at the event. A graduate of Rutgers in 1967, Jim began a selling career with Keebler Cookies and in 1970 began selling with a Lumber Distributor, Plunkett Webster. In 1989 Jim was Senior Partner in a management buyout of Plunkett Webster and continued to operate as President and Co-Owner. Over the course of his career Jim was instrumental in bringing products such as Dupont Tyvek, Trex Decking, Deckorator Balusters, and Azek Trim to the marketplace. In 2000 Jim and his Partners sold Plunkett Webster to Parksite out of Batavia, IL, and has stayed on to continue developing business opportunities.
