Bob Rosen is the former owner of six graphic arts companies whose career began on Wall Street, where he was an investment banker.
Educated at Harvard College and NYU Graduate School of Business Administration, he acquired, operated and sold his companies over a period of ten years.

Bob is the author of the groundbreaking book for industry CEOs – The Graphic Arts CEO. His articles have appeared in virtually every industry publication, and he is a frequent speaker on printing management topics throughout the English-speaking world. He has served as a faculty member of all of the industry’s executive development programs, and created the industry’s only CEO Course and Financial Management Course.
Bob served as President of New Jersey’s Association for the Graphic Arts, as a Director of Printing Industry of Metropolitan New York, as a member of PIA’s National Manufacturing Management Committee, and as an advisor to PIA’s Financial Executives Group.
