DES PLAINES, Ill., Dec. 3 Schawk has appointed Linda Ciprella to a newly created post: Vice President and General Manager of Enterprise Products and Consulting Services.
The new post was created in response to the Company's recent reorganization into four distinct competency groups: prepress, consulting services, enterprise products and specialty services. Effective immediately, Ciprella assumes responsibility for managing the enterprise products group and the consulting services group. Ciprella reports directly to Schawk president and CEO, David A. Schawk, and will serve as a member of the Company's executive management team. She will be based at Schawk's global headquarters in Des Plaines, Illinois.
Most recently, Ciprella served in executive capacities at Noosh, Inc. and Packtion, Inc., internet start-ups serving the e-business needs of Fortune 1000 companies in the areas of print, packaging and procurement. In addition, she served as vice president and general manager of the outsourcing business units at RR Donnelley and Bowne, providing technology, content management and media replication services to their client bases. Ciprella commented on her appointment: "Prior to joining Schawk, I had a chance to review their products and was very impressed with the capabilities and design relative to client needs. Listening to unsolicited remarks praising Schawk's ideas and products by consumer product company decision-makers really crystallized my decision to come here. I look forward to working with the many bright, creative people of Schawk to build business in the enterprise products group and consulting services group by enhancing the solutions we provide to our clients.''
