Print Image Network welcomed new Account Manager Simon Starkie to the company in August 2017. Simon has joined the growing team at the electoral print and mail specialist to manage the electoral stationery requirements for councils up and down the country.
With 20 years plus experience, Simon began work in the print world on a lithographic press, quickly becoming first minder, with an assistant under him, before being headhunted to become Production Manager for an agency who needed someone to advise them on printing processes. He simultaneously made the move into Account Management, with several national newspapers keeping him busy on promotional items like scratch cards, lottery cards, and bingo slips.
Having joined just two months after the Snap General Election, Simon missed a baptism of fire as Print Image Network had to rise to the challenge of printing millions of electoral print items in a matter of weeks. Simon is now looking forward to next May when he’ll be managing electoral print and mail requirements for local and mayoral elections. Impressed with the hard-working nature of the company, Simon feels at home with its strong work ethic.
He said of his new position “What appealed to me about Print Image Network was applying the skills I have gained in printing and account management, to a niche industry. The company’s ethos is centred on making the customer happy and delivering a first-class service. This demands a huge amount of expertise and knowledge and I’m looking forward to working with customers to deliver their 2018 election requirements.”
On a personal level, Simon is a husband and father of two based in Rossendale. When not ferrying his sons around, Simon’s favourite thing in the world is golf.
Simon will be attending the annual AEA Conference, 4th to 7th February 2018, along with the rest of the Print Image Network team.
