PIA/GATF Announces 2009 Officers and Board
Immediate Past Chairman - Janet Green, CEO of Greens Inc., Irvine, CA
Green was the first female Chairman of the Board in PIA/GATF's history, which dates back to 1887. A 25-year veteran of the printing industry, Green has worked in nearly every department in her company, a third-generation, family-owned firm which has operated since 1908. Green has served on the PIA/GATF board for over 10 years and has been involved in countless committees, including government affairs, GAIN, finance, and business practices. She has chaired both the Association Relations Committee and Planning Committee and served on the Task Force which led the efforts to consolidate PIA and GATF. On the local level, she served on and ultimately chaired the Finance, Government Affairs, and Public Relations Committees of Printing Industries Association of Southern California (PIASC), and in 1999 she became one of the youngest people in PIASC's history to serve as Chairman of the Board. In 2004, she was recognized as PIASC's Executive of the Year.
