Jeff Ostenso

Jeff Ostenso, CEO of Ironmark, one of the largest and most forward-thinking print and communications companies in the Mid-Atlantic, is a national leader in the print industry. He built Ironmark with the vision to grow clients’ revenues and to provide employees with livelihoods for their families. He’s forward-thinking, entrepreneurial, and downright honest. Since taking over the family business in 1992, Ostenso grew the company -- then Frank Gumpert Printing -- through acquisition, as well as organically. Not only did he acquire capabilities the company didn't offer, but he also attracted sophisticated and cutting-edge talent to deliver these new capabilities. Ostenso takes pride in the team of leaders he has built -- of the 14 acquisitions to date, 12 of the company owners still work with Ironmark today. In 2014, Ostenso rebranded the company as Ironmark. Ostenso’s strategic vision and steadfast leadership have taken Ironmark from a $2.7m local print shop to a $40m national marketing and communications company of tomorrow.
