Panpa Bulletin : February 2006
Bob Aitken goes North AFTER three years in the role, former Advertising Manager of the Herald and Weekly Times, Bob Aitken, has jumped at an op- portunity to fly North and take up the role of Advertising Manager, Cairns Post. Bob swears the swap was not due to Cairns balmy weather and tropical lifestyle but the 'bigger and better chal- lenge' the Cairns Post offered. "It's a dynamic and growing area and I looked at the ad rev- enue and saw a role," he said. We half believe him because he's worked with GM Nick Trompf before - but even Bob admits that for a Melbourne man through and through, he wakes up thinking he's made a seachange. From Consultant to GM ROBERT Munro (below) is the newly appointed general man- ager of the Newspaper Advertising Bureau in Auckland. The NAB markets and promotes the News- paper publishers' Association 23 newspapers as an advertising me- dium and also conducts research and provides booking and billing services. Munro formerly ran his Auckland-based marketing consultancy, LHRM Consulting, for 2.5 years, prior to that in a 20- year advertising agency career Munro held a senior position at McCann-Erickson. Earlier posi- tions were at J Walter Thompson, and at Charles Haines. Munro replaces Sonya Crosby. It was off to Narnia for members of The Warnambool Standard's 'The Wendy's Club'. "It's a successful move to encourage young readers and currently has 850 active members -- to qualify for the Narnia party at the cinema they had to reach Gold Certificate level by contributing at least 20 colour ins for the year." Says Managing Editor, Ian Pech. 60 | PANPA BULLETIN February 2006 PEOPLE Roger Gee joins Toyo Ink WITH over 23 years in the printing industry, Roger Gee, previously, the Southern Region Manager for Coates Australia, recently joined Toyo Ink Australia as the General Manager Commercial Group. Roger worked for Coates Aus- tralia for almost 10 years in a va- riety of roles including Queens- land Sales Manager, Queensland Regional Manager, Victoria Re- gional Manager, and Southern Region Manager (including Tas- mania/ SA/ WA). Each role en- compassed commercial respon- sibilities for business activities which also included screen and digital markets. Roger held the position of South- ern Region President of the SGIAA as well as being a member of the Federal committee of SGIAA. Among the variety of roles held within Coates Australia, Roger Gee was the National Sales Man- ager for the newly formed dig- ital division, responsible for the equipment and consumable sales of Luscher CTS, Colorspan and Durst flat bed and roll fed digital printing equipment. Gee's new role will support Toyo Ink's presence in existing markets and assist with the development of new business in core areas as well as the strategic development of additional market sectors such as coldset web-offset inks. Toyo Ink Australia, already established as the predomi- nant manufacturer of web-offset heat inks in Australia, has recently completed a multi million dol- lar expansion of its world class manufacturing facilities in Mel- bourne. This expansion will accommo- date continued volume growth as well as the capacity to supply new market areas. Through its parent company, Toyo Ink Manufacturing Co. Ltd in Japan, Toyo Ink Australia has immediate access to leading- edge technology. This coupled with strong, local manufacturing capabilities and a reputation for reliability and quality of products and service through its R&D and Technical Service facilities, have allowed the company to diver- sify in alternative areas, such as coldset news inks. Gee says this will position Toyo Ink as the lead- ing local manufacturer of offset inks in the local market.
