Employee spotlight: Dave Johnson

Continuing Prisma Graphic’s monthly tradition of highlighting an employee – this month we interviewed Dave Johnson.

How long have you worked at Prisma Graphic?
I am proud to say that I have been employed at Prisma since doors opened in 1980.

What is your position?
Lead Pressman

What is a lead pressman’s job in commercial printing?
My core responsibility is running one of our 40 inch, 6/C Akiyama presses and directing the help of a secondary pressman to produce high-quality print materials that meet or exceed our customers’ expectations. And, my alternative duties are to support Prisma’s on-going training efforts and technology upgrades.

How do you enhance the client experience?
As a Lead Pressman it is my job to understand the full capabilities of our presses, as well as the requirements of every job I run. I try to enhance each of our customers’ experience by learning their individual needs to expedite press checks.

Working for Prisma since the beginning, what has been one of your most rewarding moments?
After 30 years, there have been so many rewarding moments. If I had to pick just one I would have to say the satisfaction of being a part of such a talented group of professionals. Every day I am amazed by the things we accomplish together.

When you’re not helping meet clients’ what can we find you doing?
Spending time with my wife of 29 years, Martha, my 2 children, Michelle and Scott, my 3 grandchildren and my 7 dogs (yes, 7). I also enjoy working on my house and on various projects around my property.

In closing, is there anything else you want us to know about you?
With 2 family members in the US Armed Forces, 1 of which is about to deploy to Iraq, I would just like to ask everyone to please support our troops for the protection they provide and the sacrifices they make.

Dave, thank you for your time. Your knowledge and skill are an integral part of what helps makes Prisma Graphic a leader in the commercial printing industry.
