The Label Printers, a manufacturer of custom labels and packaging headquartered in Aurora, IL, USA, has announced that Lori Campbell has been promoted to chief of operations. Campbell has worked for The Label Printers since 1982, when, fresh out of college, she was hired as a receptionist.
Bill Kane, chief executive of The Label Printers, is a believer of promoting from within. He says, "I started with The Label Printers in 1970, as an assistant production manager – which meant that I did a little bit of everything, including manufacturing, maintenance, and shipping. I was given a chance to take a leadership position with the company, which I embraced wholeheartedly. I share my partners’ belief in nurturing and promoting from within, and felt it was time to recognize Lori’s leadership and results by promoting her from General Manager to Chief of Operations.”
In her new role, Campbell is responsible for manufacturing, sales, marketing, IT, quality, and human resources. “I am very proud to have been given this promotion. As The Label Printers has grown, I’ve tried to grow with it. I’ve expanded our presence in core industry organizations such as TLMI, taken our expertise in anti-counterfeiting to new markets, introduced the LIFE Program (Label Initiative For the Environment) to the company, and have embarked with my staff on a very ambitious upgrade of our entire operating system. And to cap it all off, earlier this year, in our first year of eligibility, I was delighted to accept the Eugene Singer Award (a label-industry best managed company competition) on behalf of The Label Printers.”
Campbell is a member of the Board of Directors of TLMI, and an active participant in the organization’s committees, and industry events. She is often asked to speak at workshops and conferences about labels, packaging, and anti-counterfeiting, among other subjects. She will be a featured speaker this year at the Label Release Liner Industry Seminar 2010 and IQPC’s 5th Anti-Counterfeiting & Brand Protection Summit.
