Salt Lake City-based SAi (SA International), a provider of software solutions for industries including sign-making, large-format digital printing and CAD/CAM for machining, announces the addition of three new members to its board of directors.
The company says that Dan Purjes brings a vast amount of business development expertise to the role, having taken several businesses from start-up to profitable enterprises with-in some cases-revenues of hundreds of millions of dollars. Purjes has also served on the boards of several charities, among them The American Tinnitus Association, The Abraham Fund, The Plantrician Project, and Plant Based Utah.
Edna Purjes also offers a wealth of knowledge in business management. Drawing on her design and business major, Purjes launched a wallcovering business and takes credit for its growth into a leading manufacturer within the industry. She is also accredited with being the first and only female president of the Wallcovering Association.
Rudy Baron joins the board with solid print industry experience that stems from his acquisition of an AlphaGraphics franchise. Specializing in digital printing, mailing and fulfilment, and large-format printing, Baron’s franchise achieved Gold Circle status within the company in 1995. He has also served on the AlphaGraphics Network Leadership Council, guiding their strategy and global vision.
“I’m delighted to welcome Dan, Edna and Rudy to SAi’s board and am certain that their wealth of business experience and expertise will be tremendously beneficial in strengthening our strategic decision-making,” says Mark Blundell, SAi’s CEO.
