My love for printing started in 1997 when Robert Jack (Manager of Uptin Print) signed me up at Uptin Print (at that time Uptin Print was part of Port Macquarie News and both companies were owned by Rural Press Limited).
I started as an Estimator and then was promoted to Sales Representative a year later. Winning numerous awards for sales in the commercial printing sector I was then offered the Managers position in 2009.
Unfortunately, in 2013 Fairfax Media (owners at that time) made Uptin Print redundant as they couldn’t expand the operation at the Uptin Print site in Milton Circuit Port Macquarie.
In March of 2013 I then created Matrix Printing and I haven’t looked back. The majority of Uptin Prints customers followed me over Matrix Printing and a new business was born. I owe a great deal to Keith and Charlie Uptin and Robert Jack for giving me a go and having faith in my abilities.
I now have a beautiful wife and two awesome kids. Life cant get any better!
