SALT LAKE CITY – AlphaGraphics, Inc., a global network of independently owned and operated Business Centers, announced today that its board of directors has named Aaron Grohs as president, effective February 15.

“Several months ago, the AlphaGraphics board set out to identify a leader with the right mix of experience and vision to take our company to the next level," said Gay Burke, executive chair of AlphaGraphics. "Aaron's knowledge of our industry is unequaled. We welcome him into the AlphaGraphics family and look forward to the impact his experience, management and leadership skills are sure to make.” 

With 15 years of executive operations, sales and marketing leadership experience in print and marketing communications, Grohs is a veteran of the commercial printing industry. He spent the past 11 years as executive vice president, sales and marketing at Consolidated Graphics (CGX), a leading sheetfed, digital print and technology company. For eight of those years he also served in a dual capacity as group vice president, providing executive operational leadership to eight CGX manufacturing companies.Throughout his tenure at Consolidated Graphics, Grohs was responsible for the operational development and execution of the company's national marketing and strategic sales initiatives.

In 2001, he was promoted to president of Mercury Printing, also a CGX company, in Memphis, Tennessee. In that role, he was responsible for overseeing the successful operational and sales turnaround of this local print, fulfillment and technology center, positioning the company as a leading digital print and technology solution provider. 

“It is an honor to join the AlphaGraphics team in Salt Lake City and contribute to this great company's focus on growing and strengthening the incredible franchise network we have around the globe," said Grohs. "I feel confident that together we can continue the success the company has experienced.”

Gay Burke, who has been serving as interim president and overseeing the search for a new leader, will continue as executive chair of the AlphaGraphics board.
