Paul Kranz (email@example.com)
Paul worked for a commercial printing business that implemented Hagen OA in the late 90s. It was the first integrated ERP the company had dealt with, so it was a fun and challenging project. He then worked for EFI from 2007 to 2016 as a Professional Services Consultant specializing in Foundation and Printflow implementations. The next step was to rejoin the user experience at Taylor Communications. The SCS division is in the process of implementing Monarch and designing their own automated mailing flow. Another fun and challenging project. Looking forward to helping the MUG achieve its goals for the next few years.

Kevan Meinershagen (email@example.com)
Manager of Process Improvement | Allen Press, Inc.
Kevan joined Allen Press in 1999 and has worn many different hats over the course of his career. The primary focus was on various aspects of the Online Publishing division; there he has worked as a developer, sat in customer and technical support roles, managed production groups, and has presented advice and insights on the various caveats involved with publishing online content. He was responsible for the Online Publishing division at Allen Press for 9 years; during which he managed several large content migrations and site launches. Through these he discovered his interest in workflow analysis and project management. In 2016 Kevan was the Project Manager for the Allen Press transition to EFI Monarch. The launch included iQuote, Foundation, PrintFlow, Auto-Count, and Process Shipper all at once. Despite that he is still sane and relatively happy with how the project went.
