In this role, Paparozzi will expand on his work, which has focused primarily on the commercial printing industry, to cover the many other industry segments represented by SGIA, including packaging, garment, graphic and industrial printing.
In announcing the new hire, Ford Bowers, president and CEO of SGIA, said, “We are excited to have someone of Andy’s experience, depth of understanding and skills joining SGIA. His more than 30-year history in the industry brings tremendous perspective to our work in a time of rapid change. There can be no doubt that his analysis and insight is needed now more than ever.”
In the coming months, Paparozzi will develop panels that extend the models of his long-running, annual “State of the Industry Report” and “Capital Expenditures Report” to the broadest range of printing markets.
For the past two years, Paparozzi has been the chief economist for Idealliance, and served at the National Association for Print Leadership and Epicomm, prior to their respective mergers with Idealliance, since 1984.
