Gary Garner is an innovator and entrepreneur at heart. He founded this company in January 1984 under the name General Litho Services, Inc. While it then focused on offset commercial printing, his intentions have always been to grow the company right along with its clients, helping to support them in all of their print needs.
Over the years, the company has grown organically and through acquisitions, expanding the breadth of capabilities offered to clients. Our leadership team is championing its continued growth. Operating campuses in both Brooklyn Park and St. Paul, the company added UV and digital printing, mailing services, inventory management, fulfillment and distribution services. Achieving the highest standards of compliance, including HITRUST certification, SOC 2 compliance, G7 certification and ISO 9001, Gary continues to lead the company to meet or exceed the most rigid requirements of clients.
For the last 10 years, Gary has overseen the addition of marketing, branding, and data and analytics services to the company’s already robust printing and distribution platform of solutions. He sets the tone for ENPOINTE and the company’s vision as he says, “Our customers are the focus of everything we do!”
Gary stays involved in just about every aspect of the print industry as he has for his entire career, serving on many local and national industry boards and as a member of trade associations and industry peer groups.
While away from leading the company, you might spot Gary in a different driver’s seat—lake hopping in his Cessna 182 amphibious float plane. He also enjoys classic cars and street rods, golfing and being with friends and family, including his wife, Marsha, two adult children, two grandchildren and dog, Capri.
From my experience leading our company for the past 37 years, my favorite quote comes from Apple founder, Steve Jobs:
“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes…because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
I feel like we have lived that for many years…
