Meet The Team
Scott began his career in print services while still attending Metro State College. He started out as a Customer Service Representative and eventually moved into an Outside Sales Manager position before becoming the President and CEO of CEC Document Services in February of 2001. A huge sports fanatic, Scott played small college football at Mesa State College in Grand Junction, Colorado. He enjoys spending time with his family: daughter Rochelle, son Edward, niece Domonique and his amazing wife Trina.
Scott’s philosophy for CEC is simple: “CEC will provide the absolute best personal service available, while listening to all of our business partners’ needs. We will then strive to help those partners achieve and exceed all of their business goals while providing sound options and advice.” This philosophy resonates across the CEC document printing team.
Jim has been in or associated with the printing industry since 1963 (he is what you call an “old-timer”). Jim started taking printing classes in junior high and vocational printing curriculum during high school. While still in high school, he began working for a document printing company in Sioux City, and also worked during the summer for the School Board print shop. He has been associated with the traditional printing side of the business (Offset & Letterpress) for most of his life, working as a manager in many shops, and as an owner and manager of a franchise here in Colorado. Over the years the printing business has changed dramatically, and after witnessing what was going on in the industry, Jim decided to move to CEC where he is now General Manager of the CEC document printing Denver team. Adding up all of his time spent in the printing industry, it would be close to fifty years total.
Jim’s hobbies include fishing, bike riding, mountain trips and enjoying a good B-B-Q with family and friends. One of his favorite weekend trips is to Estes Park to visit with nature, and a favorite walk would be around Bear Lake. Over the years, Jim’s business philosophy has always been the same: No matter what job you are at, treat that job as if you owned the company. Instill in your employees that it is just as easy and just as fast to make the job you are working on look great as it is to make it look just average. Jim asks the staff at CEC to look at the project before it goes out the door, and if any of them would not pay for it, they certainly should not expect their customer to pay for it.

A transplant from the Sooner State of Oklahoma, Rick enjoys sharing time on the weekends with both his wife and their dogs, but he does make it a point to stay very busy working on some project while not at work, whether it is sharpening his skills artistically or solving technical issues.
Kathy has 23 years of experience in the industry and has worked on a countless number of different types of equipment, ranging from sheet folders, 3-hole drills and perfect binders to scoring and perforating machines, large sheet cutters and booklet makers. She has worked in customer service as well, performing stints in prepress and billing.
Kathy is truly a veteran of the industry. She is a native of Colorado, having been born in Aurora. At age 18, she moved to the west side of Denver to be closer to the mountains, and has remained there ever since. In her spare time she enjoys growing and raising her own food, working on her home and spending time with her family. When asked how she would like to be remembered, Kathy replied, “As the grandma that never said no to a roller coaster!”
