Print Week 2019 - Southern Region's Printer of the Year!

Our Print Week traditions not only include celebrating our Print Excellence Award winners, but we honor individuals and companies who have greatly impacted the industry. Since 1963 our Southern Region has recognized an individual for Printer of the Year. 

The recipient of Printer of the Year is actively engaged in any field of the graphic arts industry, have a minimum of 15 years’ experience and have distinguished himself/herself by their contributions in the industry. They should also be involved in their community and/or civic affairs. This year we are pleased to present the Printer of the Year to Barry Henry.

Currently, Barry serves as the Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Finance for API, Alliance Printing and Thoroughbred Printing located throughout Kentucky and Ohio. His responsibilities encompass all aspects of accounting, payroll, human resources, information technology, banking relationships, safety, purchasing and benefits for each entity. Barry has been an integral part of the Association leadership team since joining the Association Board in 2011. Barry just completed his year as Chairman of the Board, and we will continue to seek his counsel and appreciate his continued support of the Association. 

We'll announce the winner of the Maxwell Award next week... stay tuned!

The 2019 recipients of the Printer of the Year and Maxwell Award are without question deserving of these prestigious awards. Join us in celebrating their accomplishments at the 57th Annual Southern Region Banquet on January 24th at 6:00 pm.
