Clearwater, FL, August 15, 2016 – GSP, a leading retail services provider, is proud to announce that Elaine Scrima, VP of Operations, has been selected as a finalist for the 2016 Business Woman of the Year. The award celebrates the accomplishments of successful female executives in the Bay area. Elaine will be honored at the Business Woman of the Year gala on Friday, September 23 and also recognized in a special edition of the Tampa Bay Business Journal on September 30.
“I am glad that TBBJ sees what we have known for a long time: Elaine is one of Tampa Bay’s greatest business leaders,” said CEO Geoff Neuhoff. “Elaine has been with GSP for 20 years and she’s a vital part of our company’s success,” he continued. “She supervises and mentors a staff of 350+ located across our three production facilities in Clearwater; Provo, Utah; and Madison, Wisconsin. Her team successfully produces and ships 60,000 marketing kits to stores across North America every month. Not only that, but Elaine provides an empowering example for female employees in the male-dominated print industry,” added Neuhoff.
In 2015, Elaine was a featured speaker on the SGIA Expo’s “Production Dream Team” panel. She has also helped her team at GSP win 12 prestigious Golden Image Awards for printing excellence in the past three years. With a deep understanding of customer-facing businesses, GSP develops solutions that impact the bottom line – from printing store-specific POP kits to state-of-the-art, computer-assisted fulfillment to software tools that ease store execution. Thanks to Elaine’s leadership example, GSP has averaged 10% annual growth over the past 10 years, as well as a 95% customer retention rate.
