Ann Kinsfather Establishes Southwest Regional Sales Office for McCormick Armstrong
McCormick Armstrong―a commercial printer with state of the art web and sheet fed capabilities, direct mail, catalog, fulfillment, distribution and other brand management tools―has hired Dallas veteran printing and direct mail marketing specialist Ann Kinsfather to establish a Southwest regional office in Dallas. The move expands the national footprint of the Wichita, Kansas-based company that also has regional offices in the Midwest (Detroit) and Northeast (New York).
Kinsfather has more than 25 years of experience in the Dallas-area printing and direct mail industries. She has worked on both the client- and vendor-side of the business, handling national accounts in the airline, hospitality, telecom, banking and health-and-beauty industries.
“Not only has Ann handled accounts at major Dallas mailing houses like Ridgeway Mailing Company and Business Ink, she has a fine arts background and hands-on experience as a production director at Dallas’ highly respected FFWD and RAPP advertising agencies,” said Jere Ames-Johnson, vice president of sales for McCormick Armstrong. “That vendor/agency perspective, coupled with her artistic training, allows her to offer greater creative solutions to meet client objectives.”
Jake Shaffer, McCormick Armstrong’s president and CEO, said after completing a recent $10 million expansion that includes a five-unit Goss M600 and state-of-the-art pre-press technology, there are few North American printers that can equal the company’s technology and resources as a print solutions provider. The company holds a G7 quality certification and is an FSC-certified printer.
“We have an aggressive coast-to-coast sales plan, bringing our unique capabilities to prospects in key vertical markets. We will continue to recruit the best account executives and expand our regional offices. Our sights are set on offices in Kansas City and other major markets, as well,” Shaffer said.
The privately held 110-year-old company “is financially stable, committed to a customer-first philosophy, and operates with absolute dedication to the highest production quality and green printing standards,” Shaffer said.
