Atlanta-based NAUE America announced the appointment of Paul O’Malley as president of NAUE America in a Dec. 13 press release. The former Propex sales manager officially moves into the post Jan. 1, 2012, according to the release.
O’Malley is a well-known veteran in the geosynthetics community. He was most-recently with Landmark Earth Solutions. Previously, he was the national sales manager at Propex Geosynthetics, where he helped build a cooperative business arrangement for the sale of NAUE’s geogrid products in the U.S.
