Ludlow, MA — Packaging prepress provider CSW, Inc. announces a strategic re-shaping of company leadership.
Longtime company President Laura Wright has transitioned to a new role as CEO. “My grandfather founded CSW in 1937, and I’m proud to continue moving us forward,” says Wright. “Although I will continue to actively manage all aspects of the company, I decided to share the day-to-day decision-making with someone I trust. This lets me address long-term strategies for company growth.”
That trusted advisor is new company President Scott Ellison, formerly CSW’s VP of Sales. Ellison brings over fifteen years of executive leadership experience, including five years in the packaging industry, to CSW. He will manage sales, marketing, customer service, operations, IT and R&D. According to Ms. Wright, “Scott comes to us with new ideas developed from both inside and outside our industry, and has already identified and pursued new growth opportunities for CSW.”
Rounding out the organizational shift is former Director of Graphics Marek Skrzynski’s new position as Technical Director. CSW has a long-standing reputation for producing creative solutions to package printing challenges. Ellison notes, “Marek has been instrumental to the development of innovations such as WhiteFX™ ink transfer, X-Color™ EG separations, and 3D visualization services. This new role allows him to focus on expanding new initiatives such as Web2Plate™, an automated prepress workflow for narrow to wide web flexo printers.”
CEO Laura Wright observes, “CSW has thrived for over 80 years, thanks to our ability to creatively adapt to our client’s changing needs. These changes are re-aligning us once again so we can continue to succeed for another 80 – or longer.”
