The R&E Council’s Nonpareil Society, a members honors group, established the award in 1990 to recognize an individual who exemplifies strong leadership and support of both the Council and the printing industry at large. Warter will receive the award from A. John Geis, president of A. J.

I’m delighted he is this year’s Kronenberg Award recipient.”
With a graphic communications career spanning more than 30 years, Warter has held various sales, marketing, technical, and research positions with DuPont, Coulter, and Fuji (now Enovation). He has served as an officer or board member of 20 graphic arts industry organizations, playing a major role in industry standards activities. A former vice president of the R&E Council, he is a member of the group’s Steering Committee and Nonpareil Society.
Warter is a member of NAPL’s Soderstrom Society and the recipient of the 2002 NAPL Technical Achievement Award. He recently received the first annual Harold W. Gegenheimer Annual Achievement Award from the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation for his leadership as chairman of PGSF.
