Francis McMahon of Océ and Vic Stalam of Kodak announce information for the upcoming Prism awards at NYU

Published on May 6, 2011

Franics McMahon, Vice President of Marketing for Océ and Vic Stalam, Vice President of Commercial Sales at Kodak about the upcoming Prisim awards June 21 at Gotham Hall in New York. For more information and registration information visit tinyurl.com/4ob6o8.

Cary Sherburne: Hi. I’m Cary Sherburne, Senior Editor with WhatTheyThink.com, and I’m very happy to be here with two very good friends of mine, Francis McMahon, Vice President of Marketing at Oce.

Francis McMahon: Good to see you, Cari.

Cary: And Vic Stalam, Vice President at Kodak.

Vic Stalam: Hi, Cari.

Cary: And we’re here to talk about NYU Prism Awards and all the great work you guys are doing.

Francis: Thanks, Cari. We’re very proud to stand together here. We’re both board members at NYU for their Management Program, and Graphics Communications Management and Technology at NYU. And as board members every year we help sponsor scholarships for the students to have students come into our industry. And the Prism event that we have every year—this is the 25th Anniversary of the Prism event—is a chance for all of us to raise money in support of the Scholarship Program at NYU and Vic and I are very proud board members of that committee.

Cary: And that event is going to be on the 21st of June?

Francis: That’s correct, at Gotham Hall in New York.

Cary: In New York. And do we get to know ahead of time who’s going to get the award?

Francis: Well, I’ll tell you who—Vic, would you like to share with us who’s going to get the award this year?

Vic: This time one of the industry icons in the graphic arts industry, Tom Quinlan, who’s the CEO of R. Donnelly, is going to be receiving the award from NYU.

Francis: Terry McGraw is going to be the person that’s going to be our luncheon Chair. He’s going to be the one that’s going to welcome us into the 25th Prism Event and welcome Thomas Quinlan into the 25th Prism Award nominee.

Cary: And Terry is the CEO, Chairman and President of McGraw-Hill.

Francis: You got it.

Cary: So a couple of industry icons.

Vic: Absolutely.

Cary: Great. So if people want to—can just anybody attend, buy a table; you know, how does this work?

Francis: What we’re really hoping to do, like Vic has done at Eastman Kodak Company and like I’ve done at Oce North America, is to really open our arms to the other vendors in the community, friends of R. Donnelly, friends of people that would like to grow the community in graphic arts. And please join us in sponsoring this very important event; and we’d love to see you on the 21st, and we’d love for you to get involved and buy seats and tables and join us for the luncheon. And to do that you can simply go to the NYU website and register for a table or a seat. It’ll be a great event and all of us would really appreciate your support to bring these young people into the great world of graphics communications and management and technology.

Vic: See that’s the nice thing about this, Cari, is that everything we raise at this event is going to be spent in terms of scholarships for the Masters Program at NYU, so that’s the exciting part for us.

Cary: Yeah, because we need to be bringing more of these students into indoor industry, more of these bright young minds into our industry, and this is great that we’re able to help them along.

Vic: Absolutely, absolutely. That’s why Francis and I are really glad we’re part of this and that our companies are helping us sponsor some of this.

Cary: That’s terrific.

Francis: And thanks to WhatTheyThink for allowing us to share the message with the rest of the world.

Cary: Good. So we’ll be running this on WhatTheyThink. We’ll have a link that people can click on to go directly to the registration, and we hope that they’ll respond.

Francis: We can’t ask for more. Thank you very much for that.

Vic: Thank you very much.

Cary: Thank you both.
