In 1984 Ron founded Profitmaster Displays, Inc., and has built the company into the
leading supplier of merchandising and point-of-purchase display products for the soft
drink industry. The company serves soft drink bottlers throughout the U.S. and Canada,
and its products are used in retail outlets of all types, including supermarkets,
convenience stores, drug stores, and mass merchandisers. The company counts among its
largest customers such industry leaders as The Coca-Cola Company, Dr Pepper Snapple Group,
Pepsi Beverages Company, and Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated. Profitmaster Displays
has been recognized repeatedly by Coca-Cola Enterprises and Coca-Cola North America (now Coca-Cola
Refreshments) as their #1 supplier in this category.
Prior to establishing Profitmaster Displays, Ron co-founded Marketing Impressions, Inc.,
a design and marketing firm which supplied a line of ceiling fan accessories to home improvement
retailers, counting The Home Depot and Lowe’s among its largest clients. Earlier in his professional
career, Ron was employed by Anheuser-Busch, The Coca-Cola Company, and Mead Corporation, in a variety
of engineering, marketing, and planning positions.
An Atlanta native, Ron attended public schools in the City of Atlanta, received a Bachelor of
