Kirkwood proudly announces the hiring of Noel Tocci as SVP of National Business Development.
Well-known throughout the print and design community for his extensive knowledge of materials, technology and cutting-edge processes, Noel brings a wealth of expertise and client service. Leveraging his over 30 years of industry experience, Noel will focus on growing and diversifying Kirkwood Printing’s current offerings.
Prior to joining Kirkwood, Noel oversaw National Business Development for Mohawk Fine Papers in the Northeast. Previous to that, among other leadership positions in print, he owned and operated Taylor Tocci & Co, a boutique print consulting studio, working hand-in-hand with designers, fabricators and printers to execute finely designed, intricate collateral of the highest caliber.
“When the opportunity to hire an individual like Noel comes around, you do not hesitate. Noel’s understanding of this business and his long track record of true client success doesn’t come around very often, so when it did, Kirkwood jumped at the chance to add to our already successful New York sales team,” said Mark Nappa, Chief Sales Officer of Kirkwood Printing. A regular speaker, design community advocate, teacher, and long-time supporter of AIGA, Noel is a true partner. Look no further than what current and former clients have said about working with him.
“Basically, for us a project is not finished until Noel Tocci has been involved. All the most important aspects of a graphic design project are decided with him: the most appropriate paper, the most appropriate printing process, the best way to achieve optimal results on any medium, the best binding available. There are no limits, Noel can always deliver the best, at the right price. But above all, his knowledge and personality are what make him the most pleasant person to work with. For us, he is the best!” The Late Massimo Vignelli, Vignelli Associates
“In 20 years of working together, Noel has spoiled me (and all my designers) to expect that print is always done his way: collaboratively, supportively, and with the same unflinching standards. He loves printing and problem-solving the way we love design, and sees each opportunity as a new challenge, not as our problem. I know that every step of the way, his advice is making the end product the best it can be, and the closest to our vision.” Tanya Quick, Language Dept.
“Noel brings curiosity, precision and innovation to each project. He is that rare collaborator who is as committed to a spectacular outcome as you are.” Lisa Naftolin, formerly of Art + Commerce
“We love to collaborate with Noel and his team. They have undisputedly the highest understanding for quality, innovation, printing and production and always deliver the most amazing results whatever scale of job. We can’t wait to work with them on the next thing.” Lisa Smith, formerly of Marque Creative
