It’s probably safe to say that Brad Garlich is the only printing expert you’ll ever find who was once also a professional high diver – ask to see his photos from the 1975 Mexico/U.S. Acapulco Cliff Diving Championships as proof. Now president of Garlich Printing Company, Brad joined the family business in 1976, becoming vice president of sales in 1985, and has focused much of his efforts on fostering outstanding customer communication and service. His efforts have paid off – in 2000, Brad was honored to see Garlich win the Mississippi Valley Family Business of the Year.
Not only is Don Hockenbury one of the most experienced print production executives in the area, with nearly 40 years at Garlich Printing Company, but he also is one of the industry’s most respected leaders – and a pretty good shot to boot. Don is vice president of production at Garlich and a former board member of both the Printing Industries of St. Louis and Print America.
As a young man, most of Greg’s time was spent in the water, or more accurately just slightly above it. As a former member of the USA Diving Team, Greg narrowly missed an opportunity to compete in the boycotted 1980 Summer Olympic Games. Under the Olympic Job Development Program, however, Greg secured a job with Citicorp and became one of their top mortgage producers in the Miami area.
