In his five years at CRW Graphics, Ron has grown beyond his role as an Account Executive in the sales division. His business development skills coupled with his enthusiasm for using new technologies to communicate ideas and messages made Ron a natural choice to manage CRWconnect.
Fresh out of college in 1999, Ron joined Pomco Graphics Arts, one of the most diverse commercial printing companies in the region at that time. True to his passion for learning new things, Ron absorbed everything there was to know about printing, such as foil stamping and embossing, authentic engraving, a variety of unique binding processes, and of course, offset printing. He was also exposed to creative marketing projects, such as corporate identity, branding, commercial print and direct mail. In addition to his success in sales, Ron’s signature achievement was his management of the development and implementation of a web-enabled online ordering system. Used primarily for stationery items, the online ordering system increased productivity, profit, and helped grow sales
In 2007, Ron joined the CRW Graphics team. He chose CRW because of its ability to assist clients with their communications needs beyond putting ink on paper, creating additional value through custom web-to-print applications, variable data printing (VDP) and direct mail, and now multichannel marketing.
Ron attended York College, where he studied marketing and advertising. He resides in Philadelphia with his wife and three sons, spending his free time coaching, going on Boy Scout camping trips, and performing in the South Philly rock band, The Discount Heroes.
