Since coming on board as President of PrintingHouse Press in July 2002, John has led PrintingHouse Press to the top of the industry by growing top sales talent, developing leaders and by acquiring competitor businesses.

John assumed the reins at PrintingHouse Press with a clear vision.  His goal was, and continues to be, to provide high value services and solutions in a niche market while embracing the latest technological advances.  He has built a team of highly talented and experienced leaders and professionals, who share the same vision and level of dedication.

In 2006, John negotiated the acquisition of Virgil Mountain Appellate Printers, a 20 year competitor in the industry, owned by Steve Dignam. In 2010, John spearheaded PrintingHouse Press’ second acquisition, acquiring 25 year old St. Louis West Appellate Printers, established by Gene St. Louis in 1989. Most recently in January 2015, John capitalized on his good name and solid reputation in the industry, by securing a deal for Echo Appellate Press of Long Beach, another 40 year mainstay in the appellate printing arena, owned by Stu Davis. Given his known reputation for establishing meaningful business relationships, John has maintained close friendships with all three past owners.

Prior to joining PrintingHouse Press, John was President of a competing appellate printer, and spearheaded the development of the first CD-ROM Brief in the industry, integrating hyperlinking, bookmarking, deposition video and animation.  That same service continues to be a viable option for attorneys and law firms across the country.

In 2012, and in keeping with PrintingHouse Press’ standing as the leader in technological developments, John launched the PrintingHouse Press Client Portal and Mobile App – firsts  in the industry, in which attorneys have 24/7 online access to all personal records and briefs filed with the Court. Here attorneys possess the ability to track the date, time, location and position on the calendar for oral arguments, and receive instant notifications when their appeals are served and filed.

John earned his B.S. in Business Management from the New York Institute of Technology-Old Westbury. He continues to strengthen his leadership and management skills by attending numerous conferences and workshops. Of late, he attended the week-long “EntreLeadership Master Series” presented by business leader and radio personality Dave Ramsey in Nashville, Tennessee. John has also attended the “Developing the Leader within You Workshop” and “The 5 Levels of Leadership Workshop,” both by The John Maxwell Company.

John is committed to expanding PrintingHouse Press’ reach in the legal market through further acquisitions inside and outside of the appellate industry. He will continue to approach each with his typical drive, straightforwardness and sense of humor.
