Off the Presses

Deputy Public Printer William Turri will retire at the end of June, ending a five-year stint at the Government Printing Office that included almost a year as acting Public Printer.

Turri, 68, temporarily took over the helm of the GPO when Public Printer Bruce James resigned in January 2007. Ten months later, President Bush gave Robert Tapella the job.

Turri was integral to the development of the e-passport, overseeing the transition to the new passport production. He’s also a veteran of the printing industry: Before the GPO, Turri was president of printing companies Case-Hoyt and Monroe Litho.

“Bill has proven to be an exceptional manager during the period of GPO’s transformation. He provides the glue that holds GPO together,” Tapella said in a statement. “We would not be where we are today without his steady hand and superlative skill in managing during these changing times.”
