Pride In Print manager Sue Archibald has taken top place in the third New Zealand Printer Power 50.

Although she could not make it to the event, she sent a message from overseas. She said, “I am absolutely blown away to be the recipient of this award. I think that upon reflection, this award is recognition of the impact that Pride in Print has had on the industry over a long period of time… When I consider the list of nominees for this award, I am very humbled to be the recipient, and I thank you all.”

The event took place at The Glasshouse in Morningside, Auckland, where members of the print community gathered for cocktails and enjoyed an evening, sharing one another’s company.

Ricoh New Zealand sponsored this year’s event and Mike Laursen, production manager for Ricoh New Zealand spoke at the event, congratulating everyone who participated. He said, “Ricoh is proud to support this event and the people who work so hard to make this industry so innovative and such a great contributor to our economy and our country. We congratulate everyone who made the New Zealand Printer Power 50 and the Emerging 20.”

Ruth Cobb, general manager of PrintNZ chaired the judging panel. She said, “Thanks to everyone who helped make this event a success and who supports initiatives that promote our industry and the people in it.”

This year, organisers added the Emerging 20 to the New Zealand Printer Power 50.
