During that time he has been instrumental in the introduction and ongoing market development of numerous technologies in the Australasian printing industry, including film image-setting and computer-to-plate imaging, as well as inkjet and direct imaging technologies.
Seidl (pictured) has also been a significant contributor to the activities of the Graphic Arts Merchants Association (GAMAA) and the Lithographic Institute of Australia (LIA), both of which will have difficulty replacing his energy and expertise in management and technology.
“Due to internal restructuring of the Screen Group, my position with Dainippon Screen Australia has become redundant and I shall be leaving Screen this month,” Seidl told ProPrint. “Departing with 20 years of experience with the Group leaves me a little saddened. However, I do have fond memories of the wondrous camaraderie that this unique company has generated.
“I do hope that the strength of Screen will continue to develop with new and younger blood. As always, the future holds change, so it is time for the ‘old guard’ to retire.”
