Richard Sutis, President of Goss International, will Retire After 44 Years of Service
He spearheaded the company’s global expansion into Eastern and Central Europe and helped to establish Goss operations in Italy and France, modernize Goss operations in Japan, and invigorate and lead its successful venture in China.
Sutis is a Registered Professional Engineer, a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers for 48 years, a member of the Board of Directors of the Web Offset Association of Printing Institute of America, a past Board member of the National Printing Equipment Suppliers Association (NPES), a past member of the Board of Directors of the Research and Engineering Council (R&E) and a past member of the Board of Directors of Goss Graphic Systems Preston and Goss Graphic Systems Nantes. He will continue to serve on the Board of Directors of Goss Japan and Shanghai Goss Graphic Systems Co., Ltd.
“It has been an honor to work with so many talented Goss staff as well as many industry professionals over the past five decades,” Sutis comments. “Much has changed since my father showed me his presses at age five. These changes in technology are what keeps the industry vibrant and generates higher print quality, lower costs and more efficient throughput. I am ready to retire, but the presses will not stop. Print will continue to play an important role in our lives.”
Jochen Meissner, CEO of Goss International, praised Sutis’ loyalty, dedication and contribution to the company, “Dick has been a long-term friend to many of us, and his broad industry knowledge combined with global market intelligence and business leadership have been highly valuable to the company and its employees,” according to Meissner. “I am very glad that Dick has agreed to continue to serve on the Board of Directors of our two Asian operations. I wish him all the best in his retirement.”
