Stanley O. Styles Industry Excellence Award

NPTA’s highest honor is awarded to an individual who has had a distinguished career in the printing paper industry. Each year, the Stanley O. Styles Nominations Committee selects an industry leader who has made a positive impact through innovation and dedication, and whose character represents the ideals for which leaders all strive.

The criteria for the selection of award winners is as follows:

  • The recipient of the award shall be a paper merchant, paper manufacturer or paper converter, consultant, or educator who has had a distinguished career in the printing paper distribution channel.
  • The winner will be someone who has had a positive influence on the printing paper distribution channel. This may be from the introduction of new management methods, marketing concepts, or new products, which have become important in the industry.
  • The award recipient will be one who is acknowledged by the printing paper distribution channel as a leader and a good representative of the values and traits necessary for the excellent conduct of business.
  • The winner will be one who has been long involved in paper industry affairs through actions, and has supported the paper industry’s trade associations, foundations, and marketing groups of mills, converters, merchants, and others.
  • The award recipient will be someone who has been a spokesperson for the paper industry either locally and/or nationally, and whose opinion is respected.
