Adam Hartley is a Print Management Specialist with 17 years of industry experience. With experience in offset printing, digital printing and large format printing he is well versed in several areas of the printing industry. Adam’s earliest experience in graphic design and print came at Alphagraphics as a customer service representative and key operator. He was soon promoted to Assistant Manager and was given the task of not only overseeing the digital portion of the operation but also took over the responsibility of purchasing for the operation.
Adam was looking for more of a challenge and with a well-established manager in the center he knew the likelihood of moving up any more in the organization was slim. He eventually moved up to the role of Salesperson for Alphagraphics. For the four years following that he successfully handled sales for the company. Adam was asked to come back into the store as the center’s general manager.
Now married, Adam and his wife Crystal are raising two wonderful daughters.
