Also networking within the packaging industry, the firm is a Benefactor of the Institute of Packaging Professionals, and Dennis serves as a senior consultant for the IoPP annual salary survey.


I’m a jazz fan, in a big way. As a hobby, I play cocktail and jazz piano.  As Duke Ellington said, “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing.” The abundance of musical talent in Nashville makes it easy for me to keep my ego in check. I console myself that I’m an excellent amateur!
