Frank Tueckmantel has joined the NAPCO Media team as executive vice president of business development. Tueckmantel brings extensive strategic marketing and business development experience to the role from his previous long-standing tenure as EFI’s vice president of corporate marketing.
In this new position, Tueckmantel is primarily responsible for the development of a powerful new event initiative which will launch next year. The new platform will provide OEMs, industry groups and associations with a comprehensive, end-to-end customer engagement offering to fully maximize their tradeshow experience, before, during and after a show.
More details about this brand-new initiative will be unveiled at the PRINTING United press conference breakfast, October 23 at 8 a.m. in Room D220 of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas.
“Frank is a renowned industry expert and truly understands the value of fully supporting our partners by taking the heavy lifting off of event planning so they can focus on customer engagement surrounding any show or event,” says Mark J. Subers, president and CRO of the Printing and Packaging Group, NAPCO Media LLC. “Frank’s success in marketing and executing worldwide events will be a major asset to our team, especially in the direction we are headed as a newly combined company.”
“Over the past few years, I’ve become acutely aware of how technologically-centric our world has become, especially in communicating with one another,” says Tueckmantel. “I have been missing, and I feel our industry has been missing, that time together in person.
“I applaud SGIA and NAPCO for giving the industry what it has asked for in the form of PRINTING United,” he continues. “The value of bringing our industry together, now enhanced with a solution for OEMs, industry groups, associations and more; to truly maximize that time together with customers on site, will reengage our communities tremendously. It is a very exciting time to be joining this company, as it continues developing solutions to further support the industry.”
