Amrish Thaker, a veteran of the commercial printer RR Donnelley and direct mailer Advo, on Friday was named president and CEO of the North American newspaper division of Muller Martini Mailroom Systems Inc., formerly known as Graphic Managements Associates Inc. (GMA).
Thaker succeeds Gary Hughes, who has acted as interim president since December 2005. Hughes will assist in the transition while gradually resuming his duties as managing director of Muller Martini Canada, the company said.
A native of India, Thaker became a U.S. citizen, and has been working in the country for over 30 years.
He held various engineering positions in RR Donnelley from 1978 to 2004, when he joined Advo as regional director of operations for all processing facilities in California and Arizona.
