Mike Loyd Named IPMA Executive Director
The in-plant community was shocked last week to hear of the resignation of Carma Goin from her position as executive director of the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association. Today IPMA announced it has found a new executive director -- someone very familiar to the in-plant community.
Mike Loyd, the former director of Louisiana State University's in-plant, will become the new IPMA executive director effective Nov. 1, 2016.
“This will be a labor of love, and I am thrilled to begin working again with and for my colleagues across the country,” says Loyd, who most recently served as the production marketing manager and in-plant specialist for higher education at Ricoh Inc. He worked with Ricoh from 2007 until July 2016, where he helped develop business strategies and programs for college and university in-plants.
"With Mike Loyd directing the IPMA team, we are not only well positioned to keep IPMA in step with the industry, we will also have incredible synergy across all in-plant market segments," adds IPMA President Mike Lincoln.
With more than 30 years of experience in the newspaper and printing industries, Loyd served as the director of Procurement Auxiliary Services at LSU for 13 years. He oversaw Printing Services, the Copy Center, Copier Management, Design Services, Mailing Services and University Stores. For his service there he was honored by In-plant Graphics as the 1999 Manager of the Year.
Loyd is also a past president of the Association of College and University Printers (ACUP) and a past president of the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA). He has been a member of IPMA for many years, having served as International President-Elect, International Secretary-Treasurer, and in several office capacities of the Louisiana Bayou Chapter. He has served as a consultant for many colleges and university in-plants, was on the editorial advisory boards of two industry journals, and has spoken at numerous regional, national and international conferences.
Loyd received his Bachelor of Arts in journalism from Louisiana State University (LSU) in 1978 and later earned his Masters of Public Administration in higher education administration from LSU in 1998.
Stay tuned for an exclusive IPG interview with Loyd in our regular Friday E-news.
