Stephen entered the printing industry in 1993 when he was appointed Managing Director of Offset Alpine Printing, which was acquired in 1995 by IPMG. Shortly after this acquisition Stephen was appointed CEO of the Printing Division of IPMG and oversaw a dramatic period of change and exceptional growth. IPMG has led the printing market in its adoption of new technology and has consistently forced its competitors to play catch up.
