Friday, June 27, 2003
LOS ANGELES, June 26 -- Anderson Lithograph, a premier provider of high-end commercial printing services, announced today the appointment of Mark Tennant to the position of President and General Manager. Tennant, a 28-year veteran with Anderson Lithograph, comes to the position with a variety of experience from pre-press to sales management. "Mark has been an integral part of the success that Anderson Lithograph has experienced to-date, and I'm proud to announce him as my successor, " said John Fosmire, former President and current Chairman of Anderson Lithograph. "The printing industry is undergoing enormous change and I'm confidant that Mark is the right person to lead Anderson Lithograph to a position of continued strength." Tennant started his career as an apprentice in the color department learning the trade from the ground floor, and eventually rose through the ranks to become director of the pre-press department in 1991. In this role he led a major overhaul of the pre-press workflow to a digital format, which had a dramatic impact on the quality and efficiency of the entire production process. As the need for customer acceptance of the new workflows grew apparent, Tennant moved into the position of Vice President of Business Development and became an industry-wide advocate to clients and printers alike. In 1999, he transitioned into sales, becoming part of the management team that led the company to attain double-digit sales growth. "Having spent 28 years at Anderson Lithograph, the people I work with have become like a family to me," said Tennant. "I am honored to be chosen as President and General Manager and look forward to meeting the challenges ahead with the incredible talent and dedicated team effort for which Anderson Lithograph is famous." Anderson Lithograph, a Mail-Well Company, is a high-end commercial printer that supports the printed marketing needs of a range of organizations, from the Fortune 500 to non-profit groups. Anderson Lithograph's commitment to the highest quality, superior customer attention and sustainable business practices is reflected in every piece of printed material produced.
