FESPA UK appoints a new President

Nicole Spencer, Operations Director at Hull-based printing specialists RMC Digital Print, has been appointed the new UK president at the FESPA UK Association.

Nicole previously held the position of Vice President at FESPA UK Association and is the association’s first female president. She will be supported in her new role by Nick Kirby, from Swanline Print in Stone, Staffordshire, who is now the Associations’ Vice President.

FESPA UK Association is part of a global membership association, which operates 37 national branches around the world, including FESPA UK. As a global federation, FESPA represents the interests of a billion-pound industry, comprising screen and digital wide format print service providers, as well as industrial and specialist printers.

Commenting on her new role, Nicole Spencer said: “It’s a real honour to be appointed President of an association that represents the interests of the UK’s printing industry. As a member of FESPA UK Association for many years, I have found the support and guidance offered by the association absolutely invaluable,  so to have the opportunity to lead the organisation and play my part in its continued success means a great deal.

“I look forward to building on the fantastic work that is already being delivered as we collaborate with our partners throughout the UK to drive innovation and excellence within our industry. One of my key areas of focus as President will be diversifying and expanding the insights and support we offer to our members, as well as embracing technology and innovation to ensure that we are working together towards a more sustainable future. Both Tony Moscrop at Dufaylite and Nick Kirby at Swanline have pioneered products that are made from recyclable materials, so with their support, I feel we can help our members to replace some of their current products with more sustainable resources.”

Nicole is interested in supporting the members as much as possible with business focused information that will help all companies thrive, with a focus on raising awareness around sustainable printing methods and encouraging print companies all over the UK to consider initiatives to support them in minimising wastage.

Tony Moscrop, Managing Director at Dufaylite Developments, the outgoing President at FESPA UK Association added: “Sustainability is undoubtedly high on the agenda. Swanline Print and RMC are industry-leading companies on this important issue so I am sure their planned combined efforts and initiatives will provide significant benefits for association members, their customers and the environment. During Nicole’s term as Vice President, she supported me during a period of significant change and growth for the association and the sector at large and consequently, I am delighted that she has become the President. It was a great pleasure to hand over the chain of office at the recent board meeting.”

In many print companies, sustainability is driven by, and focuses on, demand from customers for sustainable print solutions, but printing equipment, workflow and general facilities should be equally effective at minimising waste.

FESPA UK Association members have access to a well-established network of industry-leading contacts, technical information and tailored events that include sustainability as a key theme.
