Van Duyne to Head Northwest Operations for Enovation Graphic Systems, Inc.
Press release from the issuing company
VALHALLA, N.Y., December 16, 2002 – Enovation Graphic Systems, Inc. is proud to announce that Phil Van Duyne is the company’s new regional director for the Northwest region. Van Duyne was the general manager for Image Control Systems, Inc. (ICS) until Enovation acquired that company earlier this year.
"Responsibilities in my position with Enovation will be very similar to what I was responsible for with ICS," explains Van Duyne. "Generally, I will continue to work with the four branch offices that made up ICS and help to identify sales opportunities and work with the resources we have available to meet customers’ needs."
Enovation purchased ICS, which is headquartered in Seattle and has branch offices in Portland, Ore., Spokane, Wash., and Anchorage, Alaska, in July 2002. Van Duyne will report to John Solwold, Enovation’s regional vice president in the West. "Phil has a proven performance record as a manager and is a good leader," says Solwold. "I’m proud to have him run our business in the Northwest."
"The disadvantage when we were a much smaller organization was that our resources were limited," continues VanDuyne. "Now that we’re part of a larger organization like Enovation, we have additional resources and we’re able to offer specialization in areas where we don’t always need it, but it’s very nice to be able to offer it to our customers when they need it."
Van Duyne says he’s always had an attitude of "Who, if not you?" and "When, if not now?", putting the customers needs first and foremost.
All of the employees in the Northwest region are dedicated and trained to take care of their customers’ needs and, Van Duyne continues, do what it takes to solve their problems. "I really think that is why Enovation invited us to become part of their organization," he adds. "The keys to success are staying tuned to customers’ needs and continually improving ourselves, and we intend to maintain that."
