"Mary Jane's specialized background in playground surfacing adds an important dimension of market expertise to the LTR Products sales team," said Brad Pittam, general manager of LTR Products. "We look forward to her support as we introduce the benefits of rubber mulch to more and more markets."

Ms. Skocipick previously worked as the premier accounts manager for Advanced Ground Care Products, where she was involved in sales marketing initiatives to maximize revenue.  She also served as director of sales for Holiday Inn, contributing to a consistent annual growth in corporate business.  Ms. Skocipick holds a CNA Certification from Richard J. Daley College in Chicago.

Introduced by LTR Products in December 2009, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch is an innovative alternative to traditional wood mulch for landscaping and playground surfacing.  Whereas wood mulch requires yearly applications because of its rapid rate of decomposition, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch saves money by remaining bright and plush for years with minimal maintenance.  Pinnacle Rubber Mulch is resistant to wind and water erosion, bug and rodent infestation, fading caused by sunlight, and decomposition.  It will not compress like wood mulch, thereby providing a thick and luxurious base material for landscape beds.  As safety surfacing, a 6-inch layer of Pinnacle Rubber Mulch will cushion a child's fall from as high as 16 feet.
