recently went public and acquired a large competitor, Worldcolor Press. Quad’s culture is that of a supportive family. Harry V. Quadracci founded the company based upon a core set of values that he handed down and have been instilled in the corporate culture. Harry’s son, Joel, took over as President & CEO in 2006, the 35th anniversary of our company’s founding. Joel literally grew up with the company and has been committed to continuing the vision his father set forth at its founding. In order to do this, the company has generated a Values Wheel — a illustration of it’s values that it displays on walls throughout their offices all over the globe.
And the stories we told, while grounded by the Value Wheel, all are personal, compelling, human stories that any audience – not just the new employees – could get hooked on.
