Pozitive Sign & Graphics Supplies marketing manager Andrea Trumble has been appointed to the Visual Connections board, replacing HP’s Jeremy Brew who recently stepped down from the board due to other commitments.
Trumble brings a wealth of expertise in everything from industrial design and engineering, to events, account management and marketing, to her new role.
Announcing the appointment, Visual Connections president John Wall said the appointment was a positive one.
“Andrea’s appointment adds someone with an impressive depth of knowledge, and helps maintain the balance between print, sign and display suppliers, as well as between global players and the smaller, family-owned businesses who make up such an important part of our industry,” he said.
Trumble, who has had a long connection with Visual Connections through her role in events such as PacPrint and Visual Impact and others, said she is delighted to join the supplier association in this capacity.
“I have always believed that having a strong, representative voice at association level is vitally important, for both industry businesses and for suppliers,” she said.
“As someone who has been involved in this diverse sector for many years, I have seen and appreciated the work Visual Connections has done with expos, events and education – a subject which I consider particularly important – and the way they cooperate so closely with other industry associations to drive benefits for both suppliers and consumers.
“I look forward to working with the board and the operational team to continue that united front, in the strong belief that working together on projects which benefit all is the best way to build a strong and successful industry into the future.”
“It’s a wonderful opportunity extended to me by Visual Connections to be accepted onto the board. I hope I can contribute as someone that is passionate about signage and graphics, small family businesses and Australian manufacturing,” Trumble told Sprinter.
Wall said the evolution of the board continued to ensure fair and diverse representation, and new members were always welcomed for their new ideas and perspectives.
“We are fortunate to be able to attract such a high calibre of people to our Board, and to benefit from their expertise and insights,” he said.
“We thank Jeremy most sincerely for his contribution to the Board and to Visual Connections over his term, and are very much looking forward to Andrea’s input at this strategic level.”
