Nicole Spencer has been appointed the first female president of the Fespa UK Association.
Spencer, who is operations director at Hull-based printer RMC Digital Print, previously held the position of vice-president at the association.
Appointed to the role last month at the Fespa quarterly board meeting, she has replaced outgoing president Tony Moscrop, managing director at Dufaylite Developments.
Her vice-president will be Nick Kirby of Swanline Print in Stone, Staffordshire.
Fespa UK is the trade body of the UK's screen and digital wide-format printing industry.
Spencer said it was “a real honour” to be appointed president.
“I have found the support and guidance offered by the association absolutely invaluable throughout my career, so to have the opportunity to lead the organisation and play my part in its continued success means a great deal.”
She emphasised that the key focus of her presidency will be “diversifying and expanding the range of insight and support we offer to our members, as well as embracing technology and innovation to ensure that we are working towards a more sustainable future.”
Moscrop echoed her sentiments: “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.”
