Print industry leadership – Meet the people behind Sportswood Printing
An experienced team that knows it’s more than just
ink on paper.
Nothing says more about a company than its people. At Sportswood Printing, there’s a reason our team has an average tenure with the company of more than nine years — we simply love what we do and where we do it. The best part is our clients reap the benefits of a team of skilled professionals with more than two centuries worth of combined experience working at Sportswood alone.
Let our friendly, veteran team turn your vision into reality — on time and on budget.
Ben Lanthier joined the Sportswood team in January of 2013 after the retirement of longtime account manager Dick White. “I work with clients to provide the best possible recommendations for their printing needs,” Ben said. “And even if it is something completely beyond our scope, I will do my best to find the best solution. It’s not just about the sale; it’s about my relationship with all my clients.” Ben enjoys photography, golf and canoe tripping and guiding.
