Quad Announces Executive Leadership Changes in Latin America
Quad/Graphics Inc., the largest commercial printer in Latin America, announced the appointment of Tony Scaringi as president and general manager of Latin America, effective Aug. 1. Scaringi will succeed the current president of Latin America, Guy Trahan, who will officially retire on Dec. 31. Trahan will remain involved with the company in an advisory role until that time to help smooth the transition of leadership to his long-time associate Scaringi, who presently serves as the company’s chief financial officer of Latin America.
“I would like to thank Guy for his many years of service and significant contributions to Quad/Graphics and to the entire printing industry,” said Joel Quadracci, chairman, president and CEO of Quad/Graphics. “He has been one of the most recognizable and respected individuals in printing in Latin America for nearly 15 years, and we applaud his many achievements. Throughout his time leading in Latin America, he has worked closely with Tony Scaringi to grow a sizable and competitive presence in this large and emerging market. As Guy now transitions into retirement, I have full confidence in Tony’s ability to continue to direct this important segment of our business, especially having been mentored by Guy all these years. I look forward to what he and our united team of nine facilities in Latin America can accomplish together.”
As president and general manager, Scaringi will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of Latin American operations, which include plants in Argentina, Brazil, Chile (a partnership with the Aguirre family), Cólombia, Perú and México. In addition, he will work closely with Plural Editora e Gráfica, Quad/Graphics’ joint venture in São Paulo, Brazil.
“Together, these facilities form a strong base from which we’ll continue to help clients in Latin America and the United States reach their business goals,” Scaringi said. “Our wide-ranging geographical coverage in six countries on two continents enables us to provide local printing expertise with vast export capabilities. I’m excited to build upon our strong foundation as we continue to maximize the relevance and the power of print.”
