University of Delaware's Brown to Retire
After 34 years at the University of Delaware, Rodney Brown, manager of University Printing, is retiring on January 1. A fixture at IPMA and ACUP conferences, which he’s been attending since 1988, Brown has made friends with in-plant managers across the country.
“I could write a book on the good times and memories from belonging to ACUP and IPMA,” he says, praising “the outstanding people in this tight group that run the in-plants across this great nation that we live in.”
One highlight of his career, Brown says, was winning In-Print Best of Show awards in both 2004 and 2006.
“The best part … was taking a facility that, at one point, you thought would never win any awards and seeing it become one of the best in-plants in the nation, winning not one but two Best of Show awards and winning some 90 awards over the years.”
