Press release from the issuing company

Awards to be presented at Print CEO Forum October 2nd

Lexington, Kentucky USA - WhatTheyThink.com today reported that Quad/Graphics Chairman & CEO Joel Quadracci has been named a Print CEO of the Year award finalist. A qualifying Print CEO must have been in his or her position for at least two years and have demonstrated inspirational and innovative leadership of a printing company that has shown success during his or her tenure. Success is measured by metrics such as revenue or profit growth, corporate transformation initiatives and/or environmental leadership, or other qualifications the nominator deems important. Awards will be presented at the second annual Print CEO Forum scheduled for October 2nd and 3rd in Chicago.

Quad/Graphics' acquisition of Worldcolor this year made the company the second largest printer in North America and moved it from a privately held family-owned operation to a publicly traded company. Quadracci has followed in the footsteps of his late father, Harry Quadracci, in building a company that is innovative, employee- and customer-oriented and has one of the most modern and efficient production printing platforms in the world.

The four other finalists, in alphabetical order, are:

  • Joe Davis, CEO, Consolidated Graphics, Houston, TX
  • Robert Keane, CEO, Vistaprint, Lexington, MA
  • John Lacagnina, CEO, Color Centric, Rochester, NY
  • Adam Slutsky, Mimeo, New York, NY

Awards will be presented to the four finalists and the CEO of the Year at a dinner on October 2nd during the second annual Print CEO Forum, being held at Chicago's prestigious University Club and sponsored by manroland.

A preliminary agenda and registration page for the Forum as well as the nomination form for Print CEO of the Year are available at PrintCEOForum.com. WhatTheyThink has also arranged a limited number of rooms at the University Club, should attendees wish to take advantage of the convenience of staying at this exclusive venue during the Forum. Rooms are also available at another nearby hotel.

"While the Print CEO Forum is a printer-only event and the CEO of the Year award is being judged by Print CEO peers," said Davidson, "we are pleased that manroland has agreed to be our sponsor this year, allowing us to grow this exclusive event, add the awards, and make it even more valuable to attendees than last year."
