Over the last month, the Board of Directors of the IRgA has been in the process of interviewing candidates to replace Joel Salus, who is departing at the end of May. The Board is now happy to report that Ed Avis has been hired to be the new IRgA Managing Director. A unanimous choice by the Board of Directors, Avis comes to the IRgA with much experience and knowledge of our Industry. Avis was the editor of IRgA’s Plan & Print magazine and editor/publisher of Modern Reprographics. He also wrote extensively for Repro Report magazine and wrote The Green Reprographics Handbook. In the ever evolving landscape of the new IRgA, Avis’ background in journalism and web-site content management will serve the IRgA well. The Board also felt it was important that our policy remains as an unbiased association representing all reprographers.
Salus and Avis are working to make the transition as smooth as possible and will complete it by the end of May.
