Few industries thrive without enthusiastic supporters that work hard to make a difference. The National Association of Printing Leadership (NAPL) is one of those supporters. In October, the NAPL will honor Quick Printing’s Kelley Holmes along with 12 other printing industry leaders inducting them into the Soderstrom Society as a way of recognizing their contributions to an industry that NAPL co-founder and the late Walter E. Soderstrom loved.
“This is such an incredible honor for me,” says Holmes. “This year marks my 20th anniversary covering the commercial printing market. Over the past two decades, it has continued to build, create and define true entrepreneurial spirit and ingenuity. I am connected to this market, believe in it, and continue to learn new things daily that can build businesses.”
Holmes began her career as an account executive in 1992 for Quick Printing magazine, eventually becoming publisher of the title as well as Wide-Format Imaging, Printing News, and MyPRINTResource.com. Over the past several years, she has helped industry leaders promote their businesses in print placement and launched several new initiatives, including the print brand’s portal website MyPRINTResource.com.
Named for the late Walter E. Soderstrom, one of the founders of NAPL, the Soderstrom Society is an honors organization that recognizes the contributions of industry leaders.
