Print Shops Review

Do you or don't you: Our Brain Squad members share who makes the executive decisions.





Do Print Shops Have Boards of Advisors?

NO: 71%

  • Very few people understand the business… and no one understands your dreams and ambitions like you do. I have found my intuition is right the majority of the time based upon communicating with your customers and seeing where the technology is heading. — David Kaiser, Digitype Design, Tualatin, Oregon
  • We are a small company. If there were a board of advisors, it would be me and the owner! — Stephanie Wise, Print Express, Torrington, Wyoming
  • I usually bounce things off of my GM, lead designer, and CFO. — Diana Herrera, AP Imaging, Miami
  • I have advisors, but not an official board of advisors. — Linda Fong, Fastsigns, Oakland and Hayward, California

YES: 29%

  • Not regular. More on-demand. One person is former VP of HR and organizational development with Colgate Palmolive. One is former VP and general counsel at General Instrument (direct report to Donald Rumsfeld), and the other is CEO of a real estate development company. — Paul Korman, Trukmann’s Reprographics, Cedar Knolls, New Jersey
  • Yes, individuals with special skills that bring business knowledge and advice for our team to review and discuss. — Jason Ahart, Olympus Group, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • Four company owners and partners plus an outside board member. The independent board member is a specialist in business management, M&A (mergers and acquisitions), and business growth. — Brian Hite, Image Options, Foothill Ranch, California
