With this promotion, McAllister will lead the entire sales organization and develop strategies to achieve Micro Powders’ fiscal targets along with expansion into new markets.
The Tarrytown, New York outfit said in his 26-year career at Micro Powders, McAllister has bolstered sales and demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the company.
His accomplishments allowed him to climb the ranks from regional sales manager (1998), to domestic sales manager (2006), and most recently director of global sales – industrial division (2016).

He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from Slippery Rock University.
“I am excited and honoured to transition into this new leadership role. I look forward to continuing to contribute to the growth and success of Micro Powders,” he said.
