Harland Chairman Resigns
In 1997, Harland was awarded new check business with annual revenues of more than $40 million, including business from major national financial institutions such as First Union and Chase Manhattan.
One of the few places where Harland is growing is Grapevine, TX, where the company opened an 83,000-square-foot facility in April of last year. Production is set to grow considerably this year as more facilities close and more of the business from those plants goes there.
But Weitnauer claims that an increasing number of Harland's traditional check-printing customers are also being drawn to Harland's new marketing services products.
From 1980 to 1986, Weitnauer was chairman and CEO of Richway, a mass merchandising division of Federated Department Stores. He says that, as interim CEO, he will be assisted by the existing senior management team.
"This is a talented team, and I look forward to working with them during the search," he says. "Harland will be in good, experienced hands throughout the process and into the future."
