Russell Joyce, president of Flint Group Narrow Web, died at the age of 39 in Malmo, Sweden. Joyce began his ink industry career in 1991 with Coates Lorilleux in England. He joined the narrow web group of Akzo Nobel Inks (ANI) in 1997 and held both technical and market development positions. He was named president of the narrow web division in March 2007.
“Teamwork, achieving goals, together with a pragmatic, friendly, open-minded ‘can do’ approach were the characteristics of Russell’s leadership style,” said Charles Knott, CEO of Flint Group. “When combining this with his integrity, and passion for customers, this made him an outstanding leader for our company, our customers, and his colleagues. Joyce was well respected by everyone he met.”
