Truncale Leaving AMSP/NAPL/NAQP; Garner to Fill Role
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ—Ken Garner is taking the helm as CEO of AMSP/NAPL/NAQP, effective Jan. 12. He will replace Joe Truncale, who is stepping down to become CEO of the New York-based Public Relations Society of America.
When he steps down in January, Truncale will conclude a 30-year career with NAPL, which began in December 1984 when he was hired to become director of member relations. He subsequently became NAPL executive vice president in 1991, and president and CEO in 2002.
“I speak for the entire board of trustees in offering my thanks for Joe’s dedicated leadership over the last 12 years and in expressing every confidence in Ken Garner as he takes the helm at this most important time in the history of our combined association,” said association Chairman Tom Duchene.
Garner became CEO of the Association of Marketing Service Providers (AMSP) in late 2008. He led the association, then named the Mailing and Fulfillment Service Association (MFSA), on a comprehensive re-branding initiative.
During a 33-year career in the printing industry, Garner was previously president of United Litho, an Ashburn, VA-based heatset web magazine printing company, where he held a variety of positions, including vice president of operations and vice president of sales and marketing.
AMSP/NAPL/NAQP was created this year through the merger of the Association of Marketing Service Providers, the National Association for Printing Leadership and the National Association of Quick Printers.
