Harper's Pete Hartman Joins FTA and FFTA Boards
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Pete Hartman, vice president of sales at global anilox supplier Harper Corporation of America, has been invited to join the Board of Directors of the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) and Board of Trustees of the Foundation of FTA (FFTA).
Approached by Mark Cisternino, president of the FTA, earlier this year about becoming a member of the organizations’ governing Boards, Hartman sat in on his initial board meeting on April 30, 2011 and has since officially taken up his duties as a member of the Board.
“I am honored to be selected for this position,” commented Hartman. “I look forward to working with the Boards and to continue pushing the industry to achieve more than ever before.”
The FTA is an organization that is committed to improving the flexographic printing industry. The Board of Directors is tasked with facilitating networking, idea sharing, and the creation of innovative product designs through its initiatives. Comprised of some of the most influential professionals in the industry, the FTAs Board of Directors has long been considered the pulse of the creativity that lies within the field.
Individuals who are invited to sit on these Boards are recognized not only for their success as a professional, but for their unique perspective that will enhance the efforts of the organization. For this reason, Hartman takes the appointment seriously and is dedicated to contributing all that he can to the FTA/FFTA through his new position.
“The industry has been very good to me for the last 41 years,” stated Hartman. “I am eager to be able to give something back, to take this chance to participate on the Boards in a way that will truly benefit those working in the field, as previous Board members have done for me.”
