CIP4 announces new Board of Directors
Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Washington, DC - The International Cooperation for the Integration of the Processes in Prepress, Press and Postpress (CIP4) organization announced the results of its election for Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is comprised of the CEO and officers of the organization who are responsible for day-to-day oversight and management of the organization. All members of CIP4 are eligible to run for CIP4 officer positions and the CIP4 Advisory Board selects the officers from the pool of candidates who serve a two-year term. Officers may serve two terms (more if unopposed in subsequent terms).
This year's BOD elections mark some significant changes in CIP4 leadership. Margaret Motamed of EFI, served two terms as CEO, and with competition for the top slot, was not eligible for a third term. Long-time CIP4 member and active working group chair and Technical Steering Committee member, Henny van Esch, Director of Optimus Group, will take over today as CIP4's CEO.
"I look forward to, along with the rest of the board, leading CIP4 into the coming years, and bringing my years of experience in working in CIP4 work groups and the Technical Steering Committee to the organization," said van Esch. "Following in the footsteps of my illustrious predecessors Martin Bailey and Margaret Motamed, my aim will be to take CIP4 into the next phase of development and adoption of JDF, and to help improve the efficiency and profitability in our industry, still challenged by the current economy."
The other new CIP4 officers include:
- Education and Marketing Officer - Tim Daisy, QTMS Sales and Marketing Executive at Prism Group Holdings Ltd
- Financial Officer and Treasurer - Jay Farr, General Manager - EFI Pace at EFI
- Membership Officer - Mark Wilton, President of Wilton & Partners Consulting Inc.
