Career in the printing industry began in early 1980 as a production coordinator for a St. Louis Printing Company.
Learning the business from the bottom up was the goal and from hands on experience this created a broad knowledge of the business. Customers need a resource to be able to manage projects on multiple platforms. From Digital, Direct Mail, Offset, Grand format and Label printing. These services require product knowledge.
In fact during this time, selling is everything. From getting gas at the quik trip or on a Zoom conference call, people are buying. You have to get creative.... And this is the place where you can have it all.
For the last 16 years my days here at Swift have been the best years of my career. Having a lot of fun, working with the best in the industry and having the chemistry to tackle the toughest jobs with the tightest deadlines and exceeding customer's expectations!
Married for almost 40 years, we have 2 sons aged 36 and 38.
I still like to ride my bike and I participate in just about every cycling fund raising event in town.
Grateful to have a job that is both satisfying and not like work! The balance of what I do and how I live reflects the love of my company, co-workers and the industry.
