ING 2020 is the only gathering where “print-centric” leaders can meet, network and share best-in-class ideas, say organizers. It’s not a tradeshow; there are no booths to visit, but a leadership networking conference.
Inspired by heightened interest among newspaper production leaders in harvesting new ideas from around the country, the ING board has added two new directors since last year’s event: Janet Owen and Kim Reddington.
Owen’s current tenure at the Las Vegas Review-Journal was preceded by three years at the Register Guard in Longview, Texas. In addition, she worked in management at the Wall Street Journal, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Los Angeles Times, San Jose Mercury News, USA Today, Eugene Register Guard and Fresno Bee.
Reddington is national director of diversity and strategic alliances at United Scrap Metal, now recognized as the largest aluminum lithographic plate recycler in the country. Reddington served as an influential networking panel leader during the 2019 ING summit, according to the group.
