Gittleman joined Micro Powders after graduating from Lehigh University with a bio chemistry degree and recently celebrated his 25th year with the company. He made vital contributions to Micro Powders’ growth over that period.
He started his career at MPI as a quality assurance chemist for the Industrial Coatings division. He was promoted to U.S. sales for the Industrial Division for the East Coast and his territory was expanded to South America and Mexico. He successfully grew this area, building strong customer and supplier relationships and developing successful products for MPI.
Following this, he was instrumental in the launching of Micro Powders’ Personal Care division and became Micro Powders’ global sales director for that division. Much to the credit of Gittleman’s unrelenting passion to grow this new division, he created many effective products while building valuable relationships with suppliers and customers in the personal care industry.
Gittleman leaves an enduring imprint on Micro Powders’ success and growth and his colleagues all miss him dearly.
