Pewaukee, WI – The Institute for Graphics and Imaging has chosen as its new director Ron Dahl. I am sure an official press release from the IGI is not far behind this post and will contain complete biographic information about Mr. Dahl. I sat down with Ron late yesterday afternoon (his first official day on the job), and got some insight into his plans for bringing the world class IGI facility to full utilization quickly.
He has some exciting plans that may include a resumption of the ColorMetrix User’s Group Meeting sometime in August after a three year hiatus. As for the rest of his plans I believe it would be prudent to let Ron and the IGI make those announcements.
Here in southeastern Wisconsin there is a whole lot of support directed at getting this vastly under utilized world class facility up to speed. It goes all the way to the top of state government as Governor Jim Doyle make provisions for a $250,000 state grant that will help companies reduce the cost of training their employees at IGI over the next two years.
I believe I can safely speak for the southeastern Wisconsin Graphic Arts community when I say Welcome, and we stand ready to assist you in our combined efforts to make IGI the great success it can be.
