David Peckinpaugh will take over day-to-day management of Maritz Holdings as President & CEO effective Jan. 1, 2022. He is currently president of Maritz Global Events – one of Maritz Holdings’ core business units. 
David Peckinpaugh is the new President & CEO of Maritz Holdings. A 127-year old professional services firm focusing on motivation and travel, the company also announced that Steve Maritz will move into the Executive Chairman role “following nearly 25 successful years of leading the company as CEO and Chairman.” 
David Peckinpaugh continues to serve as President of Maritz Global Events, while taking on his new role as Maritz’ President & CEO, partnering with Steve Maritz and the management team. 
Peckinpaugh’s familiarity with the overall Maritz business and its portfolio of businesses, from
his nearly 11 years as leader of Maritz Global Events, provides stability and continuity of
leadership and positions the company for continued, long-term success, according to the company statement. 
“David has proven himself to be an incredible leader,” says Steve Maritz. “He delivers results. He builds a great culture. He’s a strong operator and well respected – both internally and externally. In his new role, Peckinpaugh will be “responsible for guiding overall business and go-to-market strategy, evolving the company’s collective vision and fostering Maritz’ unique, people-focused culture. Additionally, David will focus on ensuring performance and operational excellence across the Maritz enterprise.” In his new role, Steve Maritz will oversee high-level functions for the Maritz enterprise including finance, legal and board-related issues.
Rick Ramos remains Maritz’ chief financial officer (CFO) and Co-President of Maritz Motivation. Steve Gallant continues as Maritz’ general counsel and Co-President of Maritz Motivation. Jeff Kellstrom remains President of Maritz Automotive.
“Maritz is an incredible company that has reinvented itself and persevered to weather every
single storm it has faced, and there is nothing but opportunity on the horizon,” Peckinpaugh says in the statement.
“We’ve led the markets we serve for years – automotive, events, employee recognition, loyalty and incentives – and we will continue to outpace our competition with solutions designed and delivered using the latest in behavioral science, design thinking, and data-driven insights.”
