Brad Kisner, president of INX Digital International Co., passed away Sat., Aug. 22, after suffering a heart attack while visiting family in Santa Cruz, Calif. He was 47.
Kisner’s name was synonymous with Triangle inks, from the founding of Triangle Digital LLC with his brother Ken, in 2002, through its evolution as a major component of INX Digital’s multifaceted offerings. Kisner spearheaded the global growth of Triangle and elevated the term “third-party inks” to new levels of quality, technology leadership and respect.
Kisner began working in manufacturing during his high school summers at Triangle Coatings, a paint company his father Ned still owns and operates. After graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz with a degree in Environmental Sciences, he worked in that field for a few years. When he returned to Triangle Coatings, he led them in sales and marketing and learned more about the sign and billboard industry. When the industry went digital in the late 1980s, Brad led Triangle into manufacturing digital inks in 1988.
Through hard work and aggressive risk taking, Triangle Coating’s digital branch succeeded. Since the division could support itself, it became Triangle Digital LLC in 2002. As the driving force behind Triangle Digital, Brad secured international distribution and developed worldwide recognition for the company.
In addition to his wife and children, Brad is survived by his parents, Ned and Diane, his sister Janet, and his brothers Ken and Mardy.
