FESPA Extends Hall of Fame Voting
Monday, March 04, 2013
Press release from the issuing company
The FESPA Hall of Fame highlights worthy printers from all over the world who their peers hold up as inspirational role models in the print community. We are calling on the FESPA Community to nominate and vote for members of the imaging community who deserve to be recognised and rewarded for their excellence!
Here is what the winners from last year had to say;
No 1: Rich Thompson, AdGraphics
"I am very honoured to receive this distinction. For the last two decades, my passion has been to advance our industry. I've never expected a "pat on the back", it is just who I am and what I do. To be recognized by the industry, especially by our peers, is even more rewarding. There were some great people nominated, many of whom were very deserving, and I'm proud to be in this esteemed group. The sense of accomplishment is one of my greatest moments ever."
No 2: Kishore Musale, Classic Stripes
"I feel elated that people recognize a Company from India. This is a very proud moment and a great recognition for India where Screen printing is still not as advanced as abroad. We are proud to see that the head of an Indian company which is today the leader in its field, has been nominated and recognized. We appreciate this honour very much."
No 3: Birol Fedai, Sistem Printing
"Ever since we got started in the printing business we overcame numerous obstacles. I finally felt the happiness of sorting out difficulties and being successful with the help of technology, when I became a finalist."
No 4: Keith Ferrell, Cactus Imaging
"I was totally surprised by my nomination to the FESPA Hall of Fame. It was submitted by a valued client who we've worked with for a very long time, so it was a great honour for me that they took the time to put me forward. I think the key to the reputation Cactus Imaging has with clients is our close attention to detail and the longstanding relationships our clients have with us. We're honest and upfront with people, we employ and retain good people who go the extra mile, we deliver jobs on time and with great quality, and we dare to try different things. Clients are happy to pay a slight premium for that value."
"I'm overwhelmed to be in the top five in FESPA's global Hall of Fame. Australia is such a small market, that to be held up as a role model for other print service providers is one hell of an honour."
No 5: Simon Pless, Erler + Pless
"It's a great acknowledgement of the work we've done in the ten years since we made the transition from photo lab to wide format print specialist. Since then, we've made substantial investments to make our production environmentally responsible and that's a focus for the future. We're active networkers in the industry and within the Giga Group, a worldwide affiliation of 18 service providers that share information and best practice. It's fantastic to find myself in the top 5 of the first Hall of Fame, to have that effort and success recognised by the FESPA community. It's a proud moment for me personally and for the business."
