Vinocur To Offer Insights And Analysis In NAPL Column

Press release from the issuing company

PARAMUS, N.J., JANUARY 27, 2004 -- Dick Vinocur’s unique brand of no-holds-barred commentary and insightful analysis will soon have a new forum on www.napl.org, the website of the National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL). Beginning in February, Vinocur will pen a twice-weekly column exclusively for www.napl.org. Called Dick Vinocur’s Viewpoint, the column will present an informed review of each week’s key industry developments and their impact on printers. "When Dick decided to cease publication of his Footprints newsletter, the response from subscribers ranged from sadness to disbelief. Some sent their renewal checks anyway, hoping to convince Dick to continue publishing," said Joseph P. Truncale, NAPL president and CEO. "Never at a loss for words and decidedly opinionated, it would be a challenge to try to find anyone who is more passionate than Dick about the positive potential of the graphic communications industry. We’re thrilled that his unique perspective and valuable insights will now be featured regularly on napl.org." Vinocur, who currently serves as a senior consultant for NAPL, is one of the foremost authorities in the global printing industry and its self-described "leading curmudgeon." The direct style for which he is so well known will be very much in evidence in his exclusive columns for the NAPL website. Dick Vinocur’s views are his own and not necessarily those of NAPL. Guided by his motto--"Make some money, have some fun, and leave some footprints"--Vinocur has published nearly a dozen business-to-business magazines during his career. He launched his own company, Footprint Communications, in 1986, which published a twice-monthly newsletter on printing and went on to establish one of the printing industry’s largest conferences, as well as two annual magazines reporting on developments of the conference.
