August 31, 2009

The dynamic businessman was a global promoter of digital printing.

Bradley S. Kisner, president of INX Digital International Co., San Leandro, CA, USA, died suddenly on August 22 after suffering a heart attack while visiting family in Santa Cruz, CA, USA.He was 47.

Kisner’s name was synonymous with Triangle inks, from the founding of Triangle Digital LLC with his brother, Ken, in 2002, through its evolution as a major component of INX Digital’s offerings.

“All of us throughout the INX family extend heartfelt condolences to Brad’s immediate family and his brother, Ken, along with his co-workers at Triangle facilities everywhere,” said Rick Clendenning, INX International president and CEO. “Brad was a dear friend, colleague and business partner who will be sorely missed more than words can describe. The industry has lost a great friend as well as a dynamic leader who worked tirelessly to advance digital printing worldwide.”

Kisner began working in manufacturing during his high school summers at Triangle Coatings, a paint company still owned and operated by his father, Ned. After graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz with a degree in Environmental Sciences, he worked in that field for a few years.When he returned to Triangle Coatings, he led it in sales and marketing and learned more about the sign and billboard industry. When the industry went digital in the late 1980s, he led Triangle into manufacturing digital inks in 1988.

In addition to his wife and children, Brad is survived by his parents, Ned and Diane, his sister, Janet Kisner, and his brothers, Ken and Mardy.

He is survived by his wife, Jeanne, and their three children: Kelsey, Jake and Haley; by his parents, Ned and Diane Kisner; his sister, Janet Kisner, and his brothers Ken and Mardy.
