New York, NY; May 15, 2007 - Adstream America, the U.S. subsidiary of the world's leading provider of end-to-end solutions designed to improve the workflow of print, broadcast and cross-media, today announced the appointment of Kirk Brauch to the position of Business & Technical Services Manager, based in the Chicago, IL area.
Brauch's extensive experience in the graphic arts includes positions at Apple Computer, RR Donnelley, FujiFilm and most recently CertiFyle. He has been involved in LAN/WAN communications, systems engineering, work flow analysis, process engineering, and directing the development of Internet based production tools. The majority of his 15 years in the industry have been spent in premedia, prepress and printing. In every engagement, his focus has been on customer service and delivering value through products and services designed for that market.
Commenting on his new role at Adstream, Brauch says, "Throughout my career my focus has been on customer service and delivering value through products and services tailored for the marketplace. My charter with Adstream is simple: to help drive the adoption of Adstream's all digital Quickcut print production workflow through education, training and technical consultation. Our goal is not to be just a vendor or supplier - but a business partner whose ultimate success is directly tied to the success of its customers and partners. Partnerships are born out of respect and trust. I intend to show our potential customers they can trust Adstream to deliver on its promise."
Brauch continues, "I made the choice to join Adstream based on the company's products and their usefulness in helping customers reduce time in the production cycle, increase quality and lower total production costs. Adstream's Quickcut print product line gives brand owners agencies, publishers and printers advantages in the creation and delivery of printed materials that translates into direct benefits for their customer, the advertiser.
Adds Mike Parmenter, SVP of Adstream America, "We are very pleased to have Kirk join our expanding presence in North America. He brings us significant experience in the area of digital ad delivery as well as substantial industry knowledge. His contacts in the marketplace and enthusiasm for Adstream's products and services will be of immediate benefit to both our company and our customers."
