Managing Director

Chad Schirmer


Some would characterize me as passionate, persistent and creative with a dash of OCD. I expect excellence from myself and those around me.

As Managing Director, I’m the integrator at PCA. I help craft the strategy and oversee execution.
I’m fortunate to have a strong support team, and together we are continuously improving the quality of our content, training, events and industry resources.

Over the past several years, PCA has reinvented what it means to be a trade association. Our members are sophisticated business people who take pride in their craft, and I feel a responsibility to make sure our resources match their enthusiasm and desire to grow.
