Maybe everyone should know where our plants money is going our controller is paying her husband to do odd jobs around the plants, isn't that a slap in the face after you take a 10% paycut, lose a weeks vacation, and a 401k match.

Three more Worldcolor executives will assume important roles in the New Quad/Graphics management team upon the closing of the transaction.

Eric Steinbach, Worldcolor’s Executive Vice President, Operations, Publishing Services Group, will become head of operations for the core Magazine/Catalog business of the New Quad/Graphics.

In his new role Eric will report directly to Dave Blais, Executive Vice President and President of Magazines and Catalogs and to Tom Frankowski, Executive Vice President of Manufacturing and Operations.

Eric Steinbach has 30 years of management experience in the graphic arts industry and his service spans virtually every product segment Worldcolor serves.

Eric joined Worldcolor in 1995 as Vice President of Worldcolor, Elk Grove. Subsequently Eric has held positions of increasing responsibility including Vice President, Merced.

In 2004, Eric was named Senior Vice President of Operations for the Worldcolor Directory Group and since has been given responsibility for the Mass Market Book and the Southwestern Magazine businesses. Eric earned his Master of Science degree in Engineering Management from Northwestern University.

Dean has more than 20 years of experience in the graphic arts industry. He joined Worldcolor in 1995 as a controller in Dickson, TN. He subsequently was promoted to positions of increased responsibility in finance and operations.

In 2009 Dean was appointed Executive Vice President Manufacturing, North America. Dean holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Akron.

Gary Durand, Worldcolor's Executive Vice-President of Operations, will be joining Quad as Head of Operations for Books and the Commercial Platform in Canada and will report directly to Brian Freschi. Gary joined Worldcolor in 1981.

I am surprised that Quad executives are being shoved aside to make room for Worldcolor executives. I would like to think that it will be a good thing, because perhaps those of us Worldcolor people in the lower echelon will have a chance in "The New Quad" as they like to call it.

The reality may be that nothing will change (in other words - improve) for us, and that these job promotions are just one more example of money going to money. Maybe those Quad guys just did not have enough clout to hang on to their jobs. I hope that we can hang onto ours.

Wimer the weasel makes out again!!
The guy has NO skills when it comes to managing anything except he "manages" to pull the wool over his boss's eyes.

The only thing he knows about running a printing company is CUT - CUT -CUT. Cut salaries, cut maintenance, cut people, etc. Hell, ANYONE can do that!!

I'm amazed at how the "upper" management can't see what's really going on. I guess they are so engrossed in saving themselves that they can't see anything past their own noses.

As long as Angleson is still in power, he will keep on putting his "boys" into the top jobs.

We are former vendors of Quebecor. Dean and Eric Steinbach are responsible for our current financial position. Since 2008 we have been owed over $600,000 by Quebecor (post bankruptcy money). Dean informed me that I was a f@@@@@@ as@@@@@ for the way I ran my company. The only mistake I made was trusting the management of a company that I had worked with for over 20 years. With this impending sale it is questionable if we will ever get our money anywhere other than Federal Court. We sympathize with employees of WC but at least you have gotten paychecks. We got nothing.

It's unfortunate that you took a loss due to Quebecor's bankruptcy.However over the long run I'm sure you made a good profit with your jacked up pricing.

Please reread our post our money was not lost due to the bankruptcy. Our money was earned after the bankruptcy filing. And no we do not have "jacked up" pricing. And, no we made no profit or money on these projects. In fact we advanced over $600,000 of our own money for these Quebecor projects. You obviously are an employee that has his hand out for a cash payout from vendors and are in fact stealing from your employer.

Jinx, that's kind of a mean thing to say. I actually do know some good people who did work for our company in good faith, and got financially fucked, "jacked-up pricing" and all.

The man's got a point in that we still got our paychecks. However, he missed a bigger point. Many of our co-workers became former co-workers when they lost their jobs AND their paychecks.

Billy, thank you for the support. Yes we do recognize the many employees that have been put of work. And, we know the financial problems of many of them. In fact we have tried our best to help as many of them as possible get new employment. Our own employees have been put of work because of QW. But, you are right we did advance money in good faith and are bankrupt personally and professionally because of that faith. And, we are not alone in this; many vendors have been put out of business because of Dean, Eric and even Brent Hill. But, not the one vendor that has caused more damage to printers than any other in history. Hopefully, Quad employees will not be as dirty as WC was and the decent vendors will once again have a chance to work.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Angleson is in charge behind the scenes. It happened exactly this way when RRD "took over" Moore Wallace. All of Angleson's people shoved aside the RRD people. Trust me! ANGLESON IS PULLING QUAD'S STRINGS!!!

The announcement appears to be an internal Worldcolor communique as it cannot be found as a press release. A couple of interesting items- the new positions do not appears to be at the officer level in the new Quad. Also, the positions report to Freschi as 'President of Retail Inserts, Directories, Books and Canada at the New Quad/Graphics'. This appears to be a model of a company within a company as there is no mention of whom Freschi reports to, JQuadracci as CEO or MAngelson as Chair of Committee on Integration and Consolidation. This model allows for day-to-day management of the acquired company (Worldcolor) to continue in its current form as the management ranks of both entities (Worldcolor and Quad) are eventually melded into one over time.

I said it before the man has ties with Moore Wallace Inc. which is RRD and with Vertis. He's up to something maybe find a way to tie all together. Go to Google's Business.com World Color.

Um I think he was "terminated" from RRD. Up to something? Probably. But if anyone in management actually reads these posts, we will do everything in our power to stop this deal from happening until we get our money.

THERE IS A PARTICULAR SUPPLIER IN THE CHICAGO AREA THAT HAS PROFITED PROBABLY MORE THAN MOST WC EMPLOYEES. GIVEN "SCRAP" EQUIPMENT THAT WAS RESOLD TO PRINTERS. ALWAYS TOLD WHERE THERE NUMBERS HAD TO KEEP EVERYONE "HONEST", DOING SUBSTANDARD WORK PUTTING PRESS EMPLOYEES AT RISK THEN CALLED BACK AND PAID MORE TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT. THEN OF COURSE WE HAVE THE ISSUE IN LOVELAND WHERE A SUPPLIER ENDED UP WITH AS HE PUTS IT $1M IN EQUIPMENT THAT WAS BOUGHT BY QW BUT NEVER DELIVERED TO THE PLANT. SUPPOSEDLY THAT EQUIPMENT AND THE SWEETHEART DEAL WITH THIS SUPPLIER WAS TO GUARANTEE A MIDDLE MANAGEMENT PERSON A NICE RETIREMENT. AND THEN THERE ARE THE REST OF US SMUCKS OUT HERE, EMPLOYEES THAT WILL SURELY LOSE THEIR JOBS SOON AND US SUPPLIERS THAT NEVER GOT PAID. READ THE WC CODE OF BUSINESS CONDUCT, IT IS HARD TO DECIDE IF THE GOOD OLD BOYS CLUB IS GUILTY OF EMBEZZLEMENT OR FRAUD? IT IS DISHEARTENING TO SEE THAT QUAD GRAPHICS IS NOT SEEING THE MANAGEMENT OF WC FOR WHAT THEY ARE LIARS AND THIEVES. AND LET'S NOT FORGET THERE ARE PLENTY OF MAINTENANCE MANAGERS AND PRESSROOM MANAGERS THT FIT INTO THAT CATEGORY AS WELL. WE WENT BROKE TO SAVE WHAT WE THOUGHT WAS A RELATIONSHIP WITH QUEBECOR, WHAT A JOKE. THEY MADE FOOLS OF US IN 2008 BUT NOW IT IS OUR TURN TO TELL ALL WE KNOW ABOUT EVERYONE INCLUDING DEAN AND DAVID BLAIR.

Wimer is a smart guy who is doing all the right things. In an industry with severe over capacity, wages need to be cut, benifits trimmed, plants closed and efficiencies need to improve. If all of these things don't happen the company won't survive. By pushing, grinding cutting and making us all uncomfortable, Dean is protecting our jobs and increasing our chance for survival.
We need his strong leadership and direction and he needs our full support. Dean deserves every cent of his salary and bonuses. Now stop your dumb ass whining and get back to work.
