The FTA Hall of Fame is the group of men and women who have most affected the Association.
Individuals who aid FTA in its myriad endeavors—as a judge in the Excellence in Flexography Awards, as a speaker at Forum or Fall Conference, as an author in FLEXO Magazine, as a member of a committee, as a contributor to FIRST or FP&P, to name a few—do so not for recognition, but to further the Association’s goal of driving the flexographic printing industry.
But there are some who go above and beyond, who give so much of their time and energy, that calling attention to their efforts is well deserved. Those individuals are who comprise the FTA Hall of Fame.
“He would say the strongest resources All Printing Resources has are its people—‘Our biggest asset is our people.’ Working at other companies, you wonder if you’re valued. Dave doesn’t let anyone wonder about their importance.”
“He’s a lifelong learner and feels he has something to take away from every interaction. He doesn’t have an ego that makes him think, ‘OK, this person isn’t very important.’ Even though he’s in the role he’s in and an expert in everything… he still feels he can go and learn something from every single speaker at every event he attends.”
“What drives a man to get up every day is a love for what he does; it’s not a paycheck… Steve went out by himself—and he was getting job offers left and right—but he chose the hard road. He said, ‘I’m gonna struggle for a few years to do what’s ultimately right.’ There’s nobody else I know who possesses the same passion.”
“Mark’s tenure of service and commitment to the Association is both commendable and astonishing. He has steered this ship through some very rough waters at times, consistently maintaining and demonstrating the highest degree of integrity and professionalism along the way… He’s been our rock.”
“It is really hard for me to put into words what kind of a family man and person Paul is. We have had a lot of crazy things happen the last 33 years. Looking back, all I see are good memories and lots of laughter. Paul is the type of person who would do anything for anyone—except maybe during a Packers game!”
