About E. Antonio Hernández
He was later commissioned to coordinate the activities of the newspaper with the newspaper's printer, La Nación de Costa Rica, where he was instrumental in establishing -- for the first time there -- the link between Mac and PC platforms. He was also credited for moving the company from analog to digital prepress. He went on to direct the newspaper's commercial division.
From 1996 to 1999, he moved to Panama to establish the first office of the newspaper La Nacion, outside of Costa Rica, naming it Servigraficos Panama. He participated in the installation of the equipment, earning him much prestige in the market and helping positioning the company as a leader in prepress in the country.
From the 1999 to 2001, he worked at Graphic World, a commercial printing operation, leading the company to be one the first Panamanian printers offering multicolor services. From 2001 to present, he serves as the Commercial Director in Servigraficos Panama, which was sold by the newspaper La Nacion, in which he is a stakeholder.
He returned to Panama to participate in the re-engineering of Servigraficos, when it changed owners, to become a commercial printer. In 2003, Servigraficos Panama expanded from prepress services to include printing, achieving an important role in the Panamanian graphic arts market.
E. Antonio Hernández is an active member of ADIGRAP, the Panamanian printing industry association, since 2003, and has been president from 2009 to date. His core focus has been on training to align with suppliers. Don Antonio has been a member of Conlatingraf since 2005, and currently serves as Conlatingraf's Vice President of Industry Training.
