The Printing & Imaging Association of MidAmerica (PIA MidAmerica) recently took advantage of an offer to hold a board meeting at the North American headquarters of Koenig & Bauer in which nearly 20 board members, guests, and staff learned how each is synchronized together on education, training, and print promotion campaigns as well as the latest press technology and vision for the future.
“It was a pleasure to meet with Kilian Renschler, the CEO and president of Koenig & Bauer (US/CA), and Eric Frank, the senior vice president of marketing and product management, who both enriched our knowledge about Koenig & Bauer’s broad array of products,” says Janie Morris, PIA MidAmerica regional director. “It’s important that both of our organizations are aligned together on increasing the workforce in our industry, particularly with young people, and our advocacy of Print is Everywhere campaign. It was a very meaningful and productive day for our members from Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Western Missouri.”
“We enjoyed hosting PIA MidAmerica’s members for the first time at our Dallas corporate office where we could openly discuss our mutual goals of promoting print and its impact on our daily lives,” says Kilian Renschler, president and CEO of Koenig & Bauer (US/CA). “This is a dynamic association representing nearly 500 print, visual communications, and marketing firms and we look forward to working with them with our shared vision.”
