CPISTF launches new brand identity and appoints Executive Director

The CPISTF Board of Trustees has launched a new brand identity for the organization. All print and digital communication will now feature the ‘CANADIAN PRINT SCHOLARSHIPS’ logo shown above.

“We’re delighted with our new identity. It’s part of our longer-term strategy to raise the profile of the Fund within both the industry and the education community. We hope that everyone will find it easier to remember and say.” said Jeff Ekstein, Chair of CPISTF.

In early February, Ken Freek was appointed to the position of Executive Director, Outreach and Partner Relations. Ken brings a wealth of printing industry experience to the role. His 35-year career included senior positions with both printing and supplier companies and he has contributed to a number of industry organizations and associations.

“We’re confident that Ken will lead CPISTF initiatives that will grow the Fund and allow us to provide financial support to more students across the country” said Ekstein.

“I’m excited to be working with the students, schools, printers, suppliers, associations and donors that make printing such a dynamic industry. We are creating a truly national impact by developing approved schools in all regions and by recruiting board members from across Canada” said Freek.

The mission of the Canadian Printing Industries Scholarship Trust Fund is to attract the brightest and best students available to the graphic communications industry by providing financial assistance to enroll and continue in a post-secondary management or technical program at an approved institution.
