Family business Minuteman Press has celebrated a very special promotion.
Having worked at Minuteman Press his whole life, the franchise’s Vice President of Marketing Nick Titus has been promoted to President. This makes him the third generation of his family to become the business’ President. The printing franchise, which is based in Long Island, NY and has just under 1,000 international franchise units, will retain its current CEO, Bob Titus.
Nick Titus worked at the world-leading design, marketing and printing franchise from a young age, doing stints during his school holidays. Then, after earning a degree in Business Management from Quinnipiac University in 2007, he became a full-time Minuteman Press Marketing Rep, working his way up the hierarchy ladder.
CEO Bob Titus, who launched the business with his father in 1973, explained more about its history:
“In 1995, my father Roy Titus moved aside and named me President of the company. It was the coming of the second generation taking us through the next 25 years concentrating on our Minuteman Press franchise support system. … In the last 25 years, we have added so many products and services that even Roy could not have imagined back in 1975.
“After serving as President of Minuteman Press for 25 years, I feel it is time for another change. It is time for the third generation to take the helm. I am so proud and honoured to promote my son, Nicholas Roy Titus, as the third-generation President of Minuteman Press International. Nick has grown up at Minuteman Press like a lot of us and our kids.
“He also grew up with his grandfather Roy, who taught him so much; the work ethic that Roy taught all of us and, most important, knowing that our company is only as good as the people we have in business.”
Nick Titus is looking forward to the future of Minuteman Press:
“I am very honoured and humbled for this opportunity. I have some huge shoes to fill and I don’t take that lightly. I am very excited to continue with the core values we have instilled in our organisation and to have the opportunity to take our already great franchise to the next level.”
