Andrew D. Paparozzi is Senior Vice President and Chief Economist of Epicomm, a not-for-profit business management association representing progressive companies in the graphic communications industry.

Under his direction, for more than 20 years the Epicomm Research Department has provided timely, accurate analysis of the commercial printing industry’s performance and prospects. Among the industry’s most respected speakers and writers on economic trends, Andy has developed Epicomm’s unique 300+ member State of the Industry Panel, whose members provide regular survey feedback on economic performance and industry issues.

A defining characteristic of Epicomm research is that it gets behind the numbers to provide insight and context and to anticipate the economic, technological, or social trends that will define the industry’s future. Epicomm researchers build relationships with those surveyed, nearly all of whom have been Panel members for at least four years, and many for 10 or more. Their trust in Epicomm encourages the candid discussion of business issues, strategies, successes, and failures, and results in Panel members sharing insights and information they will not share with anyone.

Each year, Andy is a featured speaker at major industry events, gives dozens of presentations to industry groups and companies, and is widely quoted in the graphic arts trade press. He is the principal author of such major Epicomm studies as The State of the Industry Report, Capital Investment Study, Digital Services Study, Printing Industry Profile, and Printing Business Conditions.

Prior to joining Epicomm, Andy was employed by The New School for Social Research in New York City, where he analyzed the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Stamp Program and the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority, for which he developed a reduced-fare program for low-income riders of New York City’s public transportation system.

He is a Phi Beta Kappa, Summa cum Laude graduate of Boston College, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics, and holds a Master’s Degree in Economics, with a concentration in econometrics, from Columbia University. He has taught mathematics, statistics, and economics at various colleges.
