Colatriano Will Strategically Lead Vertis' Direct Marketing Business, Leveraging 25 Years of Progressive Industry Experience

BALTIMORE – Vertis Communications, a results-driven marketing communications company that delivers inventive advertising, direct marketing and interactive solutions to prominent brands across North America, today announced the appointment of Dave Colatriano as Senior Vice President of Direct Marketing Operations. In this role, Colatriano will lead the company in delivering the innovative, top-quality print solutions which Vertis is known for, helping the company increase its leadership position in the growing direct marketing industry.

Colatriano is the former Executive Vice President of Operations for Pollard Banknote Limited, an industry-leading lottery ticket provider, where he was responsible for all aspects of the operation – including design and pre-press, engineering, software development, information technology, logistics and manufacturing. He has also served in leadership roles at Fry Communications and Presto Tape, as well as holding prior leadership positions with Vertis.

"We are thrilled to have Dave Colatriano, an experienced industry leader, rejoining our team," said Gerald Sokol Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer for Vertis Communications. "His proven leadership and in-depth understanding of Vertis' innovative print solutions and sophisticated workflow procedures will enable him to have an immediate impact on our direct marketing operations."

Colatriano holds a Bachelor of Science degree from The College of New Jersey, an MBA from LaSalle University and a Masters Degree in Marketing from Temple University.

Today the company also announced that Steve Flood – who was hired in 2008 to advance its innovative digital printing business which is now one of the largest on the East Coast, and formerly held the role of Senior Vice President of Direct Marketing Operations – has been appointed to Senior Vice President of Direct Marketing Sales. Scott Berry, who served as Senior Vice President of Direct Marketing Sales, will be leaving the company sometime in October 2011 to pursue new opportunities.

"Vertis is on a mission of growth," said Sokol. "As marketers continue the adoption of measurable media, we see the integration of direct mail, digital and mobile as an important future strategy in which we will aggressively compete. The evolution of our leadership team will focus on multichannel innovation and delivering exceptional quality."
