Ron had more than 35 years with RRD. I am wondering if there is dissention in the upper management ranks. Maybe a change is needed.
Allen and Pyzdrowski have come up through sales but I'm not sure if they have had any manufacturing experience.
There is a good man, John Pecarek, who would be a great choice for an upper mgmt. position. He worked in C-Ville and was the Roanoke DD. My understanding is that he is currently a Sales VP. Among his many attributes is the fact that along with his knowledge of the printing business, he is a fan of the Chicago Bears.
John Pecaric Quit about a year ago. He is TOPNOTCH. He would have been the best choice for CEO of this Company. Not sure why they didn't choose him. John wouldn't have put up with all the "Projects" (DO NOTHING AND GET PAID FOR IT). MSN had something about the top 10 warning signs of a company about to crash,1 sign was "top managers leaving the company". Makes you wonder.......
I sure wish this company would stop Blaming 9/11 for its woes and take a long look internally. Thats wishful thinking.
Some others that would have been good at the helm also left with-in the last few years. These were John Polian (recently name co-CEO of Queb/World), Jim Sullivan (now Pres. of Sullivan Graphics, John Ward (now CEO-Service Master) & Ron Garrison (started in Glasgow in the 70's & left a few yrs ago as DD in Mendota & the Senitobia div. of the SPS group.
R. E. Daly started out in the Cal. plant doing typsetting. He then became the foreman. After Chicago he was DD in LAC. Pyz. was in mfg. in the 320 building in Chic. as a manager in the late 70's and then D.D. He then went to Danville, KY as D.D. in the late 80's. After that he & Ed Lane (who could sell a sweater to a man in hell) who was in sales @ 100 pk. NY, switched places. Then they both went into corperate & Pyz was (& is) over ED (at one time he was President of the SPS group). R. E., Pyz., & Ed, are top notch, & very well respected by most people.
