I have been a printer since the age of 16, (1977) when I began my career at Cummings Printing in the Bindery. From there I worked my way through the Press room, Layup department, Typesetting department, Customer Service, Sales and in 1989 I became President.
Since then I have guided the company through many changes from sheet-fed to half-web to 16 page and now 32 page web presses. From hot lead typesetting to paper tape, electronic typesetting, film stripping to completely digital image setting.
To accommodate these improvements we left our 33,000 square foot facility in Manchester for a newly constructed 65,000 sq. ft. building in Hooksett, NH, and today we operate under approximately 100,000 sq. ft.
While I built Cummings Printing my personal life grew as well. I got married and raised two wonderful sons. I’ve continued to be a sports fanatic. I follow the Boston pro teams and the local college and high school teams very closely, I even play in a men’s basketball and softball league. My greatest passion however, is fishing. If I’m not in the office there is a high probability that I am near an ocean, lake or stream!
It’s been a great ride so far, both personally and professionally, and I’m looking forward to the future.
