The business model for The Network is to recruit the print industry’s most talented and experienced technical and professional personnel. Many have decades of experience with equipment manufacturers and/or newspapers. These “Associates,” most of whom are happily semi-retired, contract with The Network on a per-job basis. This allows us to keep our overhead low and provide the highest quality work to our customers at very attractive prices. Since The Network began serving the print industry in 2010 we have literally saved our clients hundreds of thousands of dollars. The president of The Network, Keith Hockenbery, states: “We focus on the desired outcome and then develop solutions to achieve it. Sometimes the solution is a used piece of equipment, sometimes it’s a process and sometimes it’s training and repair, but whatever it is we do it better than anyone else and often at about half the cost of our competitors.”
Keith Hockenbery, President of The Network, has been in the newspaper industry since he began his career as a mailer at the Ft. Lauderdale News & Sun-Sentinel. Keith joined GMA (subsequently Muller Martini Mailroom Systems) in 1987 as a Field Service Technician, providing technical training for end users throughout North America and Europe. He was quickly promoted to Regional Sales Manager and in 2007 to VP of Sales and Marketing. To learn more about Keith you can visit http://www.linkedin.com/in/keithahockenbery.
