DALIM SOFTWARE sponsors 2015 Franklin Luminaire Awards

We are proud to pay tribute to Charles Blanchard, DALIM SOFTWARE’s distributor for nearly 20 years, as an honoree

DALIM SOFTWARE is proud to, once again, to participate as a Sponsor at this year’s Franklin Luminaire Awards ceremony, and to join others as they pay tribute to Charles Blanchard as one of this year’s four 2015 Franklin Luminaire Honorees. The Franklin Luminaire Awards ceremony supports the next generation of media professionals, offering student scholarships through the Graphic Communications Scholarship Foundation (GCSF,) helping to foster the development of our future workforce.

The Franklin Luminaire Awards and its predecessor Power of Communications, for more than 50 years, have honored those who represent the fervor of commitment and inspiration in media production, presented by IDEAlliance and PIAlliance through its charitable arm, the Digital Enterprise Education & Research (DEER) Foundation and PIA Graphic Communications Foundation. In recognition of their positive influence, creative excellence, and personal dedication within graphic communications, the Luminaire Awards recognize outstanding achievements by media production leaders.

Charles Blanchard, President and CEO of Blanchard Systems, Inc., stands at the forefront of leading technology and application solutions within the media and publishing industries. For almost two decades in his role as CEO of New Orleans-based bio-charlesBlanchard Systems, he has built a reputation for designing, leading, and championing the adoption of best-in-class productivity, collaboration and management processes. As part-owner and Board Member of DALIM SOFTWARE GmbH, Charles helps shape strategic and tactical developments affecting the creation, production and publishing of content in print, digital and mobile. Blanchard Systems is also DALIM SOFTWARE’s longstanding distribution partner in North America.

For close to a decade, DALIM SOFTWARE, as a member of both IDEAlliance and PIA, has been proud to be one of the sponsors of the Franklin Luminaire Awards,” comments Carol WerlĂ©, CEO, DALIM SOFTWARE GmbH. “Of course, this year we are thrilled to participate in the event, again, and also to honor someone who has been tied so closely to our company for two decades. Charles has certainly played an important role at DALIM SOFTWARE and, most important, a significant part of our customers’ successes.

This year’s Franklin Luminaire Awards ceremony, honoring the Best in Communications, will be held October 1, 2015 at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, New York, NY.
