Business as usual at CMITO and PrintNZ

Communications and Media ITO
Media Release: January 2013

Business as usual at CMITO and PrintNZ

It will be business as usual for the Communications and Media ITO and PrintNZ, despite the early departure of general manager, Tim Pankhurst.

After 30 years in the publishing industry, Tim Pankhurst, the recently appointed general manager of CMITO and PrintNZ, is set to take up the role of chief executive of Seafood New Zealand in April.

Tim says while he is sad to be leaving the print and publishing industry after so long, the seafood role was too good to pass up.

“CMITO and PrintNZ both have strong teams and boards of management in place. This will ensure that companies with trainees in the print, packaging, journalism and signmaking industries and PrintNZ Members will continue to receive a high level of service and support,” Tim says.

“It will be business as usual, with a strong focus in the first quarter on securing the current training arrangements and enhancing the existing strong relationships between CMITO, PrintNZ and the industries we serve.

“We have really good teams in place so my departure at the end of March will not cause any loss of momentum,” Tim says

CMITO Board chairperson, Nigel Harrison, and PrintNZ president, John Boyle, affirm the strong position of the two organisations.

“The existing management and teams of both organisations ensure that CMITO and PrintNZ are well placed to continue to provide the wide range of training programmes and member services that companies in our industries are used to,” Nigel says.

Ends.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
