Plymouth, Mich. – After 42 years with Flint Group, long-time industry leader Bill Miller announced his plans to retire at the end of this year.
“I will always feel passionate about this company,” said Mr. Miller, “especially the employees and customers who have made my time here so rewarding. Still, I’ve been discussing this with my wife and Steve (Dryden, CEO of CPS Inks) for some time. After four decades, it’s time for me to focus more on my family.”
Mr. Miller traveled an impressive path to become one of the company’s top executives and winner of the prestigious Ault Award—the ink industry’s highest honor awarded by the National Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers in the U.S.
It began more than 40 years ago with a humble start on the shop floor of then-named Capitol Printing Ink. Mr. Miller quickly earned roles of increasing responsibility, by all accounts remaining humble as he earned his way to the top levels of leadership. When Flint Group reorganized into two global business groups—Flint Group Packaging and Flint Group Commercial, Publication and Sheetfed (CPS) Inks—Mr. Miller assumed the role of Chief Operating Officer of CPS Inks.
“It’s been an honor to have worked with Bill,” said Mr. Dryden. “He helped to make Flint Group the indisputable industry leader it is today, serving as a key architect in the company’s evolution over the years. We have nothing but the best wishes for him.”
“CPS Inks’ leadership team remains incredibly strong,” continued Mr. Dryden, “Bill’s commercial and operational responsibilities will be taken on by long-time Flint Group leaders with the drive, experience and teams needed to keep CPS Inks at the forefront of the industry.”
“We give Bill our thanks and gratitude for his incomparable service,” said Mr. Dryden, “and we wish him a long, healthy and very well-deserved retirement.”
