VIENNA, VA (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
Greg Albright, co-founder and principal of Production Solutions, Inc. (PS), a direct marketing solutions company, will receive the Direct Marketing Association of Washington (DMAW)’s highest honor, the Award for Distinguished Achievement on November 28, 2012 at the Best of Direct Spotlight on Achievement Awards Ceremony at the National Press Club.
According to the President of SmartGiving, Phyllis Freedman, “Greg Albright represents the very best of the direct marketing industry and of our larger community. Through Production Solutions, he has been an innovator in the practice of direct marketing and has shared this knowledge freely for the professional advancement of individuals and the fundraising advancement of causes. More importantly, he has used his company and his own personal energy …to make a difference. He has given his time and expertise tirelessly in support of the DMAW and the nonprofit sector.”
During his 25 year tenure at PS, Greg conceived of and developed several innovative technology tools currently in use by PS, an internet-based bidding system, http://www.BidToPrint.com, and the firm’s proprietary production management software, ProSIS. He also launched and managed two company subsidiaries offering complementary data management and design services.
Greg has been a member of the DMAW for over 20 years. He currently serves on the Membership Committee of the Direct Marketing Association Nonprofit Federation (DMANF). He is also a member of the Direct Marketing Fundraisers Association (DMFA) and Association of Fundraising Professionals DC Chapter (AFPDC).
For the past six years, he has served as a member of the Sitar Arts Center Board of Directors in Washington, DC, an after-school arts program for children and families of low income. He also served as president of the Advisory Council for Training Futures, the job training and placement program of Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS), from 1996 -2004.
Tiffany Neill, Senior Vice President of one of the premier fundraising agencies in the country, Lautman, Maska, Neill and Company, uniquely summed up Albright’s reason for being honored by DMAW: “It is not only for his ability to stay on the cutting edge of the industry as well as his volunteer work for the industry and organizations about which he is passionate, but,” she goes on to say, “he [also] deserves it for what he has not done. Greg says 'no' when he can't give 100 percent to something, when he doesn't have the capacity or the answers. And, then he generously finds someone else who can help. As a result, when he does something, he always excels.”
Albright will now be ranked among such greats in the direct marketing community who have been bestowed the same honor: Rick Whelan of Marketing General, Pat Silver of Silver Marketing and Roger Craver, founder of Craver, Mathews, Smith and Company.
