At its most recent directors meeting, Pesda welcomed two new directors to its board for the 2016/2017 year. Brad King, Vice President of Graphic Communications for Xerox Canada, and Janet Carmichael, Segment Manager of Wide Format Media at Cansel, both bring years of industry experience to the association of suppliers that provide technologies and services to Canada’s printing and imaging industries.
In February 2016, King was appointed to his current VP position with Xerox Canada to lead the company’s newly redesigned national graphic communications organization. Working with Xerox Canada for more than a decade, King previously served as the company’s VP of Central Operations, responsible for sales and marketing of Xerox’s portfolio of office and graphic communications products to clients in the Greater Toronto Area and southwestern Ontario. (A Q&A with King can be found in PrintAction’s March 2016 issue).
Carmichael began her printing-industry career in 1992 as a Market Applications Manager with Bowne, before working with Unisource for 12 years, followed by Perennial Inc. and Proveer/Grimco. At the start of 2015, she joined Cansel as the national organization began to ramp up its wide-format imaging interests. Cansel provides software, hardware and services provider to engineering, surveying, construction, architecture, government and printing industries.
Pesda was formed in 1975 by six suppliers to the graphic communications industry with the goal of being a national resource for technology and service providers, while also fostering the development of Canada’s printing industry. There are currently 16 Pesda member companies, including: Ariva, ACCO/GBC Canada, Atlas Graphics Supply, Canon Canada, Cansel, Fujifilm Canada, Graphic Printing Roller, HP Canada, Heidelberg Canada, huber group, Konica Minolta, Manroland Canada, Spicers Canada, Unigraph International, Veritiv and Xerox Canada.
