NZ signage veteran retires

In the association’s recent newsletter, NZSDA national president Ross Probert said Smyth (pictured) had made a “huge contribution” to the training of sign writers and the signage industry over the past 35 years.

“His efforts behind the scenes have enabled the setting up of the unit standard from 1995 through to the establishment of the new Sign School,” says Mr Probert.

“Ian has been at the forefront of the sign advisory group, helping with the formulation of strategies and business plans for our industry training through the ITO, from its inception.”

Mr Smyth will continue as the ITO advisory board’s chairman and is to provide interim administrative assistance to newly-appointed Sign School tutor Sally Davis.
