AlphaGraphics Inc. has announced several key changes to the leadership team at its worldwide headquarters in Salt Lake City, UT.  Adjustments in areas of business development, franchise development, marketing and finance reflect the company’s focus on sales growth and expansion of services and new technologies to better serve small-to-medium-sized businesses.

Art Coley has been promoted to senior vice president of global and business development. In his expanded role, Coley will lead the company’s franchise and business development strategy, leveraging work and revenue-producing activities that will continue to build strategic brand value for the network of nearly 300 locally owned business centers worldwide.

Also working more closely with Coley and the franchise development team will be Suzette Blakemore, strategic director of business development, whose team collaborates and strategizes with AlphaGraphics owners to improve sales and meet evolving customer needs.

AlphaGraphics CEO Kevin Cushing says, “The alignment of these two groups will provide our team enhanced resources to increase sales at the center level.  Combining their skills will serve as a catalyst for refining the way our franchise conducts business, and reinforces our emphasis on being a sales-driven organization.”

Jesse Himsworth has been promoted to director of marketing, and new hire Tommy Auger will serve as CFO.

"Our company is in the midst of a calculated brand evolution, and these changes in our leadership team are just one of the manifestations of the exciting things to come in the next few years,” says Cushing.  “Our team is stronger, more prepared, and more motivated than ever to find innovative ways to drive center sales and better serve the technologically savvy business professionals of today.”
