Sue Williams becomes SDC President
25
Apr '08
Sue Williams is the new president of the Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC), the world's only chartered society, professional body and educational charity dedicated to the science, technology and application of colour.

She takes over from Adrian Abel and makes history for being the second woman president appointed by the Society in its 124-year history. Her term in office comes exactly 10 years after that of the first woman SDC president, Dr Veronica Bell.

Coming from a colour measurement and assessment background, Sue has worked in the industry for over 40 years. Beginning work in a pigments company, her future in colour was assured and in October 1969 she set up her own company, Instrumental Colour Systems (ICS), with three other colleagues.

In her role as company director, she ran colour development and application teams and also planned and delivered colour courses. ICS was bought by Datacolor International in 1990, for whom Sue went on to work for seven years, responsible for the launch of new colour software products and running the technical centre in the UK.

In 1997, Sue set up Eurocolor Systems Ltd with four colleagues, which went on to be acquired two years later by GretagMacbeth UK, a company that leveraged her experience and expertise to provide pre-sales consultancy for their colour management software.

She then formed Global Colour Solutions (GCS) Ltd in 2001 to carry out consultancy, education and training and for the next four years worked closely with DigiEye plc helping to develop a pioneering digital imaging system for work in the measurement of fastness, colour and appearance. GCS Ltd was acquired by DigiEye plc in March 2007 and Sue now works as an independent colour consultant.
