Picton Press general manager Graham Jamieson has resigned as a director of the Printing Industries Association of Australia weeks after Picton called in external administrators and revealed it was $9 million in debt.

‘An opportunity I am eager to become involved in’: New PIAA board member for WA, Anthony Pittaway.

Jamieson’s replacement as the Western Australian representative on the PIAA board has been named as Anthony Pittaway, the manager of WA digital printer Discus on Demand.

Jamieson congratulated Pittaway on his appointment. “The opportunity to be a board member at PIAA has been a real pleasure and a privilege and I value all the relationships that have been made, both people and companies alike. The association is in good hands and I wish to congratulate Anthony on his appointment to the board.

The PIAA has taken steps to ensure there has been orderly handover in governance, according to a statement.

“Printing Industries thanks Graham Jamieson for the outstanding contributions he has made over more than a decade,” said Walter Kuhn, president of Printing Industries. “We are grateful for all Graham has contributed within the visual communication sector. Graham has been an essential member of our association and Printing Industriesowes a great deal to his valuable leadership.

“As poignant as it is, to farewell Graham who has made such a lasting impact on the industry, it is exciting to welcome new skills and fresh vision.  Printing Industries welcomes Anthony Pittaway as he joins the Board as the WA representative. We have every confidence that Anthony will assist us in setting, achieving, and furthering our industry’s goals and vision.”

Pittaway has been involved in the printing industry for almost 30 years, most recently as manager at Discus Demand in Perth, and looks forward to joining the board. He has been an enthusiastic member of the WA PICA committee and convenor of LIA WA.

“This is an opportunity I am eager to become involved in, and I look forward to contributing to the direction and focus of our peak industry association,” he said.

The renewal in governance is indicative of the refreshed involvement avenues that are open to members of the association, said CEO Andrew Macaulay. “We have sought nominations for the Member Consultative Committees. National member feedback has seen this structure established to enable more constant feedback to your Board via the State Director. These Committees are being established in each State and this member leadership initiative provides a further succession planning opportunity for the emerging generation within Printing Industries and will allow its members for more regular and individualised communications.”

    Are there any PIAA board members left who were actually elected? Or have they all been replaced by Captain’s Picks?

    $9 million in dept. Sound about right for PIAA too.
