Monday, April 20, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Mountain Lakes, New Jersey – Mitch Evans has joined Graphic Arts Advisors, LLC (GAA) as a Director and member of GAA’s senior team.  

“We are delighted to have Mitch join GAA,” said Mark Hahn, GAA Founder and Managing Director. “Mitch’s extensive experience as a highly respected industry consultant serving owners and shareholders of printing companies is a significant and important addition to our team.”

Mitch has over 35 years of experience in the print and graphic communications industry, during which time he has worked with hundreds of clients and been involved in more than sixty successful print industry M&A transactions. Mitch has the unique experience of having begun his career as a consultant before he successfully owned and managed his own printing company for 23 years, bringing to GAA’s clients the insights he has gained from his significant hands-on operational printing experience. 

Mitch began his career with Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) as a management consultant in New York. Mitch grew his own printing company, Print Tech, into a multi-million company with six locations; earning him the honor of being selected by NAQP as one of four “models of excellence” in the industry, recognizing Print Tech as the benchmark for all NAQP members to emulate. Prior to joining GAA, Mitch served as Vice President of NAPL’s Business Advisory Group. 

Mitch currently facilitates three print peer groups, is a well-known speaker at industry events, and is a co-author of “Taking Your Business to the Next Level” as well as the author of “Owner's Guide to Outside Sales Compensation.” Mitch additionally published the latest “Financial Benchmarking” “Marketing & Sales” and “Digital & Wide Format Pricing” studies for NAQP/NAPL (now Epicomm). Mitch’s extensive experience in the print and graphic communications industry includes seven years on the board of NAQP, serving as President in 1994-95; and being named an Honorary Lifetime Member of NAQP and a Member of the graphic communications industry’s prestigious Walter E. Soderstrom Society. Mitch holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering and an M.S. in Management Science both from Lehigh University.

“I have been fortunate to be able to visit hundreds of printing companies, most considered leaders in our industry, and have been deeply involved with our printing trade associations since 1987,” said Evans. “My prior consulting and financial background led me into advising printing CEO’s who are focused on growth by acquisition, increasing their business value or transitioning their businesses. I look forward to working with the team of professionals at GAA.”

“Mitch has assisted clients in the printing industry across the US and brings a keen understanding of the issues facing owner-operated companies. Currently living in Palm Beach, Florida, Mitch’s experience working with entrepreneurs and family businesses extends GAA’s ability to serve clients in the highly fragmented printing and packaging industries,” said Richard Mager, a GAA Managing Director.
