The Ohio Art Company has a new executive leadership team, with Elena West named as CEO and Martin Killgallon promoted to president. Current CEO Bill Killgallon and president Larry Killgallon will continue to be involved in various aspects of the business, including helping with the transition to the new executive leadership team, while also continuing to be active members of the board of directors.
