Grossman Leaving Sandy Alexander
CLIFTON, NJ—Roy Grossman, a Printing Impressions/RIT Printing Industry Hall of Fame inductee and a staunch advocate for some of the most daunting challenges confronting printers, has resigned his position as president and CEO of Clifton, NJ-based Sandy Alexander. Grossman will step down on May 31. Michael Graff will take over as president of the company.
Chip Stine, executive vice president of sales, is also leaving the company. Stine has worked alongside Grossman dating back to their days at Grossman family owned Laurel Printing, before the company joined forces with Sandy Alexander.
“It’s not about Sandy Alexander at all. This is the greatest company in the business,” Grossman said. “It’s about taking one more leap, one more adventure. It came down to realizing that I’m 56, and if I’m going to do something different, I’ve got to do it now.”
Under Grossman, Sandy Alexander has established itself as one of the premier printing companies in the United States, ranking 43rd on the PI 400 in 2007 with $142 million in sales. He’s also spoken candidly on topics that have handcuffed printers over the years, including commodity pricing, and paced Sandy far in front of the pack on greening initiatives and sustainability.
