“PLNA is fortunate to have two talented executives that will allow for a smooth transition in staff leadership,” said Jim MacKenzie, chairman of the PLNA board of directors and president of Octoraro Native Plant Nursery. “Given the uncertain economy, changing technology and emerging member needs, the board is pleased to have someone of Cathy’s talents ready to take over leadership of the organization.”

Corrigan joined PLNA as the director of finance and administration in July 2004. An accountant with a Bachelor of Science from Shippensburg University and an MBA from Kutztown University, Corrigan was an auditor for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for six years. She also has held management positions with the Reading Area Community College, the Berks Area Regional Transit Authority and Easter Seals before joining PLNA.

“I’m pleased to have the opportunity to lead PLNA,” Corrigan said. “This is a time of transition as PLNA implements improved technology to better meet industry and member needs. I am excited about the potential we have to serve the green industry and increase our membership.”

Robertson will continue to handle government relations under contract for PLNA.

“Gregg has provided outstanding leadership for this organization for more than a decade and we are fortunate to be able to maintain this relationship with him as we move forward,” MacKenzie said. “We have great plans for PLNA and Cathy will be leading PLNA into the future.”
