Penn State In-plant Gets New Director
After a long search, Penn State University’s Multimedia and Print Center (MPC), one of the country's largest in-plants, has a new director. On Monday, Joseph Geffre, formerly director of Mail and Document Services for the Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport, Pa., took over the leadership role of the 52-employee in-plant. With $12 million in annual sales, Penn State's MPC is the third largest university in-plant in the country, according to IPI statistics.
Geffre replaces former director Abbas Badani, who is now senior director of Integrated Graphics Services at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
“Joseph has more than 30 years of experience in printing and direct mail and will be a welcome addition to the University Park campus,” says John Papazoglou, associate VP for Penn State Auxiliary and Business Services. “We welcome him to Penn State and wish him success.”
“Joseph brings a vast array of experience in printing and mail services that stood out during a robust candidate search,” adds Duane Elmore, director of Procurement Services. “The fresh perspective he brings to this position will benefit MPC and the university in the future.”
MPC provides graphic design, print, copy, mailing services, custom promotional products and university stationery to faculty, staff and students at Penn State.
