He is a recognized author within the industry for gravure techniques and best practices, and often speaks at events hosted by organizations such as the Gravure Association of the Americas (GAA) and the former Packaging and Label Gravure Association (PLGA).
Before joining Daetwyler in 1993, Marty worked as a press operator at RR Donnelley in North Carolina. It was during his time here that he completed an official apprenticeship with the state for rotogravure operations. He also holds an associate’s degree from Haywood Community College.
