Franklin Park, Ill.-based Moss, a leading global provider of experiential marketing solutions for events, exhibits, retail and corporate environments, announces that Jason Popp joins the company as president and CEO effective Nov. 2. Moss partners with customers around the world through its locations in the U.S., Germany and China.
A well-known executive in the global events industry, Popp was previously president of international at GES, a leading global face-to-face events and tradeshow services company, where he led teams throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Additionally, he is currently a board director of InGo, a provider of social marketing for both virtual and in-person events and is on the advisory board of the Virtual Events Institute. Prior to GES, Popp held commercial roles with L.E.K. Consulting and Royal Dutch Shell and was based across three European countries.
“I couldn’t be more proud to join the talented, global team at Moss,” says Popp. “I have known Moss for years as a design-focused partner providing powerful visual communication and structural products for events, environments, retail and exhibits, and now medical supplies. We are uniquely positioned with our operations in the U.S., Germany and China to support the global recovery of brand experiences and events with flexible, affordable and sustainable solutions for brand marketers,” Popp adds.
Popp succeeds Dan Patterson, who retires after serving eight years with Moss. Patterson oversaw Moss’s growth into Germany and China, the evolution of the company’s manufacturing capabilities in a new 180,000 sq.ft. Illinois global headquarters, and the launch of Moss Medical in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Patterson notes, “Jason’s past success and his commitment to a strong company culture and sustainability are in solid alignment with Moss. We are thrilled and confident in Jason’s ability to lead Moss to its next level. Our customers can expect a smooth transition.”
Popp holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BBA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he is also on the School of Business alumni board. He resides in Chicago with his wife and three children.
