GATF (Sewickley, PA) and PIA (Alexandria, VA) have appointed Michael Makin as CEO for both organizations, effective August 1, 2002.

"Michael was selected from a field of over 350 candidates and brings 16 years of trade association management experience to the job, seven of which are in the printing industry," notes Chuck Stay, chairman of the board of PIA. "His stellar leadership as president of the Canadian Printing Industries Assn. and most recent service as executive vice-president and COO of PIA were leading factors in his selection as our new CEO."

Makin, a native of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, holds an honors degree in journalism from Carleton University (Ottawa, Ontario). He began his association management career in 1986 with the Canadian Construction Association (CCA). Over a nine-year period, he assumed increasing levels of responsibility at CCA, ultimately becoming the association’s deputy chief staff executive.
