Everyone who works at American Litho knows Mike Fontana as a visionary leader and a strong, supportive presence in the workplace. He champions an open-door leadership style and a devotion to employee growth and development that have helped us evolve from a small print shop in Addison, Illinois to the fast-growing, multifaceted company we are today.
Mike and ALitho co-founder Chris Joyaux follow a team-building approach that is definitely one of the reasons we’re the #1 mid-sized company to work for in our region. This month, Mike steps into the national spotlight as a new member of the Printing Industry Hall of Fame, an elite group of leaders selected by experts at Printing Impressions Magazine and the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT).
We couldn’t be more gratified to see this honor and read the story tracing Mike and Chris’s early partnership and the pivotal growth points that followed. It’s easy to see why our company’s leadership style is admired and appreciated by so many.
From the beginning, Mike and Chris have never lost sight of the tremendous value that each of us brings to the whole. Recruiting and empowering the right professionals with the right technology has been their winning strategy since the 1990s. Maintaining this team focus while boldly looking for new opportunities in an ever-changing industry has made American Litho one of the top 10% of all print and direct mail providers in the U.S. and Canada.
Excellence. Superior client service. And devotion to each other as print professionals who are proud to be part of American Litho.
These are the values that make a Hall of Famer in our eyes. And we’re thrilled that fellow leaders in the print industry so heartily agree.
