Look Print’s David Leach takes out Anitech Industry Legend award.

According to Anitech’s David West, who presented the award this week at Visual Impact, the Industry Legend was conceived as a way of giving back to some of the people who give so much to the industry, and the community, through their everyday lives.

“With a history dating back more than 100 years, we are well placed to have observed the contribution that individuals can make, in their business and personal lives, to the goal of making visions reality in the lives of others,” he said.

In announcing Leach (pictured) as this year’s winner, he was praised for his approach to business and contributions outside of the printing industry, which include being a benefactor and donor to Biennale of Sydney for the past six years, and supporting Clean Up Australia for more than 15 years.

“David provides endless energy, ideas, innovations and solutions and manages to bring out the best in people by providing a platform where people are encouraged to strive to achieve great results,” West said.

“Beyond the bounds of Look Print, David is also well respected by his peers in the industry across Australia. He has served as President of GASAA this year, has made great contributions at overseas conferences and regularly consults with national and international colleagues, sharing information and ideas which will help to drive our industry forward.”

Leach told Print21 that he was both honoured and proud to receive the award. "It’s a fantastic feeling when somebody tells you that what you are doing is amazing," he said.
