Recognized as Emerging Leader of the Year!

On November 8th, 2018, our President Chris Pereira was honoured by our industry as this year’s Emerging Leader of the Year!

Our whole team congratulates him on this recognition, as it is extremely well deserved. Less than 10 years ago, Chris began C17media, and today it is his innovation and drive that constantly inspires our dedicated team.

Over 230 print professionals nationwide gathered at the Palais Royale to celebrate some of the outstanding print projects and initiatives in Canada over the past year at the 13th Canadian Printing Awards Gala, held by PrintAction magazine. Over 100 awards were presented within a variety of print categories as well as 4 Industry Achievement Awards, one of which was presented to Chris in recognition of his contributions to the industry.

Upon accepting this award Chris shared a few words, “the evolution of our industry has reshaped the conversation we have with our clients.  Everywhere you go, everyone you speak with, they interact with print on a daily basis. The opportunities to Create. Print. Inspire. going forward are incredible.  We are an industry based around the craft of ink on paper, we often have the opportunity to be endlessly innovative. Technology on both the print and finishing side now give us an unlimited number of possibilities.  We create something we can pick up and hold, and the positive experience you encounter when you see a live print activation is a feeling that stays with you. I strongly encourage that we continue to come together as an industry and explore new possibilities, and continue to grow our craft, together.

Thank you to PrintAction for this recognition, and congratulations to Chris on this achievement.

Chris Pereira, President of C17media
