Sadly, Kathy Woodward, Chief Executive of the British Printing Industries Federation, passed away last week. She had worked in print for over 20 years, firstly with the British Newspaper Printing Corporation, then the British Printing Corporation as Development Director, before becoming Group Operations Director at the Astron print management company. She led the BPIF for three years, during which time the organisation gained £1.1 million of funding for management training in the print industry.
Tony Garnish, BPIF President stated, “Kathy Woodward was one of the most energetic, enthusiastic and inspirational people I have met in my many years of working in our industry. Leading from the front, she with her team has driven a transformation of the BPIF which is second to none, and we will make sure her legacy continues.
