CPS Cards Announces the Promotion of Two Key Members of Leadership Team

CPS Cards, a leading provider of integrated card solutions, is pleased to announce the promotion of two key management personnel.

Jim Cooney has been promoted to the position of President and Chief Operating Officer. Jim has been with CPS for more than 13 years and previously served as Vice President and Sr. Vice President.  Upon joining the company, Jim opened CPS’ Chicago-based facility and, since that time, has taken on increasing levels of responsibility within the organization.  Jim’s understanding of the complexities of the card industry has allowed him to contribute significantly to the company’s growth. In his new role, Jim will continue to provide strategic leadership, help identify potential areas of growth and will develop new products in order to better serve CPS’ clients.

With more than 21 years of card production experience, Jim is considered a leading expert in the plastic card industry and serves on the board of the International Card Manufacturers Association.

In tandem with Jim’s promotion, Rob Schasteen will assume the role of Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing. Previously Rob served as Vice President, Sales and was responsible for developing and implementing sales strategies to drive exceptional business results into target markets. Prior to joining CPS in 2012, Rob spent more than two decades in the print and software industries, serving both the financial institution and retail sectors.

In his new leadership role, Rob will be responsible for day-to-day sales and marketing operations for all aspects of direct and indirect sales, identifying opportunities and driving profitable revenue growth.
