STEWART RESIGNS AS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR 
OF NATIONAL PRINT OWNERS ASSOCIATION

Melbourne, FL - John Stewart, Executive Director of the National Print Owners Association (NPOA), has announced he will resign from that position effective January 31, 2016. Stewart has been the executive director of the association since its inception in December of 2012. He will continue to serve the printing industry with his critically acclaimed industry studies and will resume his print shop valuation services which he de-emphasized after taking on the NPOA Executive Director role.

“John has been instrumental in the creation and growth of NPOA,” said NPOA President Barry Martin. “His efforts and expertise have helped the association grow and prosper and we wish him the best as he continues to serve the industry in other capacities.”

“It has been an honor to serve the association during the time of its birth and growth,” said Stewart. “However, it is time for me to move on and turn over the reins to someone else and get back to doing research studies, regional seminars and valuations in an industry I love. I will always be available to the association and its members for any advice or consultation they may need in the future. My tenure with NPOA has been as exciting and rewarding as any time in my industry career.”
