Printing Industries Alliance's Franklin Event Committee has announced the names of three individuals who will be the recipients of the Power of Communications Awards, bestowed during the Event's 60th Anniversary on September 19, 2012 (5:30-10:00 pm) at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan.
The honorees include: Thomas Saggiomo, President & CEO, DG3 Group for Printing; Kit Taylor, Chief Operating Officer, New York Media LLC for Publishing; and Paul Nicholson, Senior Vice President, Production & Technology, Showtime Networks Inc. for Advertising.
"In addition to saluting Howard Draft, Executive Chairman of Draftfcb with the Franklin Award for Distinguished Service—the industry's highest recognition—these three respected individuals also will be feted for their extraordinary accomplishments by more than 350 CEOs, senior executives and industry peers," noted Event Co-Chairs Martin Maloney (Broadford & Maloney, Inc.) and Brenda Barozzi (Pipeline ps.) "Our 60th Anniversary gala promises to be one of the most exciting Franklin Events ever held since its 1952 inception."
The Power of Communications Awards were established in 1971 by the former Printing Industries of Metropolitan New York (PIMNY) to provide industry recognition for those who have demonstrated positive influence and creative excellence in graphic communications. The first award recipient was Henry Luce III of Time Incorporated and many other prominent individuals have followed since.
