Christopher Donlon, at Kohler Co., Bobbi Francis, at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas, and Walter Ryan, at the City of Bangor, talk about their work, dedication to IPMA and the in-plant community, and how the upcoming conference will deliver on ‘Inspire, Educate, Grow.'
Christopher Donlon, of Kohler Co., and Kelly Hogg, of the University of Virginia, join nearly 400 men and women who have earned IPMA's Certified Graphic Communications Manager designation, which is the highest honor of professional achievement available for in-house print managers.
As communications leader for print production at Kohler Co., Christopher Donlon has his hands full. Each year, Donlon's team uses its array of Xerox equipment to produce millions of finished printed products in support of Kohler, best known as a manufacturer of plumbing products.
If you couldn’t already tell from the numerous news stories IPG publishes each month, digital color printing is a hot topic for in-plants. One more sign of this came at Graph Expo last month when more than 60 in-plant managers packed into a special digital printing seminar, co-hosted by IPG and the IPMA. The 90-minute session featured six different speakers—three vendors and three in-plant managers—who provided a ton of useful information about selecting, cost justifying and marketing digital color printing equipment.
