I first encountered Paul’s work ethic with his commitment to the TLMI Technical Committee and saw how he brought forth design needs of the industry into award winning products. Paul has brought consulting and mentoring to the Yerecic organization that has amplified our strengths and tied together our processes in a way that promoted sales involvement through the print floor processes. He provided insight to visual management and helped our leaders engage participation from every area of the company. His strength in Lean is balanced with sales and marketing to highlight customer focused solutions. I would recommend Paul’s help to any organization that is looking to bring forth competitive advantages.

“During my time as CEO of York Label two internal technical teams reached consensus that Mark Andy printing equipment delivered important technical advantages vs existing supplier platforms which ultimately led to important strategic directional changes.

Part of my due diligence was to visit Mark Andy and to establish a meaningful relationship with Paul and his team. Paul was clearly providing the vision, strategy, process and drive to re-invent Mark Andy. He surrounded himself with exceptional talent and it was clearly evident that this team was pulling in one direction.

It was clear to me that Paul and his team were fully engaged and committed to their customers and to the success at Mark Andy.”March 10, 2012
