Operations Manager, Atlanta Facility
I’ve been with Telepress since 1997, transferring to our Atlanta facility in 2001. After I graduated from Washington State University in 1993, I searched for a career at a company that felt like home. I found that with Telepress. I started out as a warehouse worker just to get my foot in the door and have worked my way up the ladder, making some unbelievable friends along the way. Inside the walls of Telepress, my passions are teamwork, efficiency, and having a good time at both. Outside of Telepress, my passion is my family. A beautiful wife and great children make that easy. Our company’s future is limitless. Great staff, great management, great leadership…It won’t be long before “Telepress” is the first word on everyone’s minds and lips when it comes to an organization’s corporate stationery and marketing needs.
Operations Manager, Seattle Facility
I have been a member of the Telepress Team for 17 years. What started as a part time job in the shipping department many years ago has turned into to my current role as Operations Manager in our Seattle Facility. As a leader at Telepress, I strive for an always improving, safe, rewarding environment for our employees, and a world class, high quality experience for our customers.
Production Manager, Seattle Facility
I started with Telepress in 2011, but I have 30 years of experience in the printing industry. Besides my well rounded background in printing, I bring with me an Associates Degree in business management. My interest and love of printing started just after graduating Kentridge High school with high marks in a nationally recognized graphics arts program. My career shadowed only a few companies showing my dedication and willingness to stay with one company. As a Production Manager at Telepress, I try to take special care of each and every job, from beginning to end. I think that the people at Telepress really make the difference, and plan to be here a long time.
I joined the Telepress Team in 2007. My background has essentially been in manufacturing and distribution companies. My main role at Telepress is overseeing the daily Accounting functions with HR responsibilities thrown in for fun. My Accounting functions allow me to interface with our customers, but I am passionate about my HR role as it allows me to play a major part in ensuring that we retain the fabulous team we have in place through team building, recognition programs and having fun with our work family. Telepress is on a path to great things and I am excited about the opportunity to be a part of the Team as we begin this journey. When I am not at Telepress, my passions are my family and getting crafty.
