Press release from the issuing company
HANOVER PARK, Ill. (July 2003) – The Technical Association of the Graphic Arts (TAGA) has appointed Enovation’s Eric Neumann as a member of the organization’s 2003 board of directors.
Organized in 1948, TAGA is the only global professional technical association for the graphic arts industry. TAGA, which has over 900 individual members worldwide, also maintains the industry's best permanent set of technical papers and abstracts. TAGA focuses on graphic arts systems, software, and computer technology developments, as well as the more traditional areas of press, ink, and paper engineering applications.
Neumann is the assistant product development manager for color products at Enovation Graphic Systems, Inc., and has been a member of TAGA since 1989. First joining TAGA as a student member while at California Polytechnic University, then serving as a faculty advisor to the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) student chapter, Neumann assisted with the early design and implementation of the official TAGA website. In addition, he has remained an active participant on the student education committee.
“As a student, I saw the enormous advantages of being a TAGA member and now, as a professional member, I can see that students are an invaluable resource to TAGA and that they will be the future leaders and innovators in this industry,” Neumann says. “I’m honored to be named to the board of directors and I look forward to working with the other members to increase the organization’s membership and visibility.”
In his current position with Enovation, Neumann provides product development support for a number of Fujifilm products, including scanners, digital proofers and color management applications. Before joining Fujifilm’s Graphic Systems Division in 1998, which was recently integrated into Enovation Graphic Systems, Inc., Neumann worked as the electronic prepress facilities manager at RIT where he was responsible for lab instruction and management of the electronic prepress laboratories in RIT’s School of Printing Management and Sciences.
Neumann has earned degrees in printing from Fullerton College, Cal Poly and RIT.
