20-40 Visionaries — Young Turks Set the Pace
Mark was named vice president of publication sales in 1998, then general manager of St Ives Hollywood in January 2003. That role was expanded to general manager of St Ives South Florida in July of that year before settling into his current role this past May as senior vice president and sales manager for St Ives Hollywood.
He counts strong communication skills as one of his strengths. “I look for the good in people and try to develop that. And I’m always looking for better ways of doing things more effectively and more cost-efficiently.”
His mother (Sandra) and father have shaped him the most, personally and professionally. “The way my father interacts with people has had a great impact on me,” the younger Angstrom says. “He’s very honest and committed to doing things the right way. And I don’t know anyone who works harder than he does.”
Angstrom’s involvement in industry associations has included positions within the Printing Association of Florida. He is also a member of the PIA/GATF’s Young Print Professionals.
Mark and wife Lisa have a daughter, Sofia, 4, along with a cat and dog, all of whom reside in Boca Raton, FL. He is a lay reader for St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church of Boca Raton and also enjoys swimming and golf.
George Oliver, 37
President, Oliver Printing, Twinsburg, OH
George Oliver is frank when it comes to the subject of his career in the commercial printing industry. Were it not for his family’s involvement in printing, he would probably have gone into the financial services industry.
“Realistically, I probably would not have ended up in the printing industry without the family business,” he says. “In the end an opportunity existed, which would have been difficult to disregard.”
Oliver earned his undergraduate degree from Emory University, then later followed up with an MBA from Case Western Reserve University. After completing his undergraduate studies, he worked briefly for a financial services firm in Atlanta before getting the call to come home and work for the family business.
