Cooper Tabbed By Print Council
GREENWICH, CT—Longtime PIA/GATF public affairs crusader Ben Cooper has been appointed executive director of The Print Council.
Cooper replaces Marty Maloney of the public relations firm Broadford & Maloney, who has been appointed to the executive committee of the board of directors, which guides The Print Council. Maloney served a special one-year term as executive director.
Cooper comes to The Print Council after spending more than 27 years with the Printing Industries of America (later PIA/GATF). Much of that time, Cooper has focused his efforts as a government affairs specialist, spearheading the organization's lobbying efforts to influence legislation affecting the commercial printing industry.
Launched in 2003, The Print Council is an advocacy group for supporting printed products. Its membership includes manufacturers, industry associations, publishers (including North American Publishing, parent company of Printing Impressions) and industry public relations firms.
