Purefoy Named New Director at Purdue Printing Services
Purdue University has just appointed Cheryl Purefoy director of Printing Services.
Scheduled to start in January, Purefoy will oversee the 60+ staff who design, produce and mail more than 25,000 production print jobs annually at Purdue. She will also coordinate the in-plant’s relocation into a new 29,000-square-foot facility, with construction to be completed in mid-2007.
Purefoy, director of Printing and Mail Services at The University of Akron, fills the position vacated by Sandy Komasinski, who took early voluntary partial retirement in May.
Purefoy brings more than 21 years of managerial experience, 15 of which were in the printing industry. She has served on numerous graphic advisory committees and associations and plans to receive a Masters of Business Administration this month from The University of Akron.
“I’m excited to be a member of Purdue’s seasoned, professional print staff,” says Purefoy. “I am encouraged by the university’s commitment and acknowledgement of Printing Services as a positive contribution to the campus community, as evidenced by the capital investment for a new building.”
The in-plant’s total service mix includes design, prepress, traditional press, monochrome and color quick copying, full color digital printing, bindery and mailing. In July 2005, Printing Services installed an HP Indigo Press 5000.
