An Inside Look at the Experts Driving the BIG Ideas for Print
With more than seven years at one of the largest magazine, catalog, and direct marketing printers in the Western Hemisphere, Quad/Graphics’ Postal Solutions Sales Manager is all about marketing solutions. Mike leads a team of sales consultants who guide customers in strategy and development of targeted, measurable, multichannel marketing solutions and assists them with postal optimization through innovative data management and analytics.
This evolving technology is the topic of Mike’s keynote session at the Annual TAGA Conference in March. He’ll present “Using Data and a Print-centric Strategy to Manage Relevant, Timely Omni-channel Marketing” and show how to successfully use customer and mail delivery data to make print the driver of timely, targeted and relevant omni-channel messaging that will help retain and grow market share.
Before Dr. Younk’s research led him to astro-particle physics at Los Alamos National Lab in New Mexico (where he has published over 40 research articles), he worked for eight years as a research/design engineer in the printing industry. This experience in the printing industry, he says, has benefitted his work in experimental physics.
A graduate of Michigan Technological University, Dr. Younk specializes in a broad range of machine (experiment) design, data analysis, and theoretical physics. His TAGA session, “Scientific and Technology Innovations for a Secure Country” explores the remarkable research activity under way in such fields as national security, space exploration, and more.
His professional accolades include the Director's Post Doctoral Fellow, Los Alamos National Lab; Alexander von Humboldt Fellow; and Michigan Space Grant Fellow.
It is safe to say that Bruce Kahn is dedicated to the field of printed electronics. He has been involved in the field for more than 11 years, not only teaching the subject at Clemson University but also consulting for companies in printed electronics, organic electronics, nanotechnology, nanofabrication, smart packaging, and radio frequency identification (RFID). Additionally he is a well-known author and trainer.
