When announcing in the June 1991 issue of FLEXO Magazine the first four recipients of the FTA President’s Award, then-FTA President George J. Parisi was succinct in explaining the criteria which they met. “Four individuals were selected to receive the FTA President’s Award for outstanding, unselfish, as well as continuous service both to FTA and to the entire flexography community,” he wrote.
In the years since, George J. Parisi, his successor Bill Dowdell and current FTA President Mark Cisternino have identified dozens of other individuals worthy of their namesake award. They have hailed from all corners of the flexographic industry—printers and manufacturers, prepress providers and educators, on the shop floor and in executive offices. What they all have in common is a set of characteristics identical to those listed back in 1991.
