Label TraxxTM-the print business management software for flexographic and digital narrow web label printers and converters-has named Katy Nightingale as European Market Manager. Nightingale, who was previously responsible for business development in the region, now also assumes responsibility for customer support and managing the efforts of European agents.
Announcing the promotion, Label Traxx president Ken Meinhardt commented, "Katy Nightingale has successfully brought Label Traxx to European customers through her efforts since joining the company in 2007.

National Envelope announced John Schlich is returning to the company as a consultant. In his new role, John will focus on implementing standardized quality processes and metrics across the organization, as well as on improving printing capabilities, quality, and other areas that directly impact customer satisfaction.
Schlich's background includes a 26-year career with Atlantic Envelope Company, where he served as president after holding positions in the sales and marketing and operations departments. His strategic leadership resulted in improved sales and reduced operating costs, which were critical to the successful sale of the company to National Envelope Corporation (NEC) in 2006. During his tenure with Atlantic Envelope Company, Schlich launched its Six Sigma Program and was certified as a trainer for Learning International's Professional Selling Skills Program.
After the sale of Atlantic Envelope Company to NEC, he served as the Chief of Process Improvement for NEC and helped to reduce quality defects, improve efficiency, and cut costs. He was instrumental in improving printing capabilities and creating a revised, more effective system for graphics support.
Schlich left NEC in June of 2009 and joined Kelly Capital as president of the Earl Scheib Paint and Body Company. He ultimately became an investment analyst with Kelly Capital.
