A new consulting group, Graphic Communication Advisors, has been formed to bridge what the group describes as the gap left by association mergers, downsizing, or elimination.
Graphic Communication Advisors (GCA) explains that in the past, printing, publishing, and imaging companies would turn to national or local industry associations for services when needing assistance in the way of troubleshooting, problem-solving, technical auditing, training, environmental and safety compliance, or overall company assessments for improving methods, techniques, equipment, and personnel. GCA explains, however, with the downsizing or elimination of many associations, the availability of such services has been greatly reduced.
The Directory of Graphic Communication Advisors is the “brainchild” of industry guru Raymond Prince, who reached out to some of the most experienced experts in the field for all facets of the printing, publishing, and imaging industries. This includes print service providers, OEMs, software developers, as well as graphic communication companies already into, or wanting to develop services in, non-print digital imaging.
The founding Graphic Communication Advisors, include: Sid Chadwick, Gary G. Field, Laura Gale, Raymond Hartman, Hal Hinderliter, Nelson Ho, John E. Hyde, Frank Kanonik, Malcolm Keif, Harvey R. Levenson, William J. McLauchlan, Michael Murphy, Ray Prince, Frank Romano, Peter A. Schlosser, Steve Suffoletto, John P. Sweeney, Robert C. Tapella, Janet Treer, Richard D. Warner, and William F. Woods, Jr.
