Former RR Donnelley, World Color Exec Mark Angelson Rejoins Quad/Graphics' Board
SUSSEX, WI—March 9, 2015—Quad/Graphics announced that print industry veteran Mark Angelson has rejoined its board of directors.
Angelson was the chairman and CEO of Montreal-based printer World Color Press when he originally joined Quad/Graphics’ board of directors on July 2, 2010, following Quad/Graphics’ acquisition of Worldcolor. Angelson played a critical role in facilitating the acquisition, which propelled Quad/Graphics into the second largest commercial printer in the Americas. He left the board in April 2011 to become Deputy Mayor of Chicago. Most recently, Angelson was chairman of the board of papermaker NewPage Corp. and helped lead its recent merger with Verso Corp.
“We are pleased Mark Angelson is rejoining Quad/Graphics’ board of directors,” said Joel Quadracci, chairman, president and CEO of Quad/Graphics. “I came to know and respect Mark during the Worldcolor transaction—the first in a series of consolidating acquisitions that has transformed our company and the industry. As Quad/Graphics continues to evolve, migrating from an era of consolidation into a new era of transformative growth, we are excited to have Mark once again participating in our journey.”
“I am pleased to have been invited to rejoin the Quad/Graphics board,” Angelson said. “I devote as much of my time and effort as possible to important organizations whose work and whose people I enjoy, where I feel I can make a meaningful contribution, and, lately, to finding ways to go home again. Rejoining Quad/Graphics allows me to do all of those things. It is an opportunity for which I am very grateful.”
With Angelson’s appointment, Quad/Graphics has expanded the size of its board from seven to eight directors.
