One of San Diego’s largest family-owned printing companies, Neyenesch Printers, has hired an executive with software experience to be its new president.

Neyenesch said Patrick Stuart is moving to San Diego from the Twin Cities after working at startups, family-owned businesses and corporations. It cited his success at growing sales, innovation and improving work flows.

Stuart has built a variety of mobile, internet and desktop applications, the company said in a March 29 news release announcing his appointment. He will oversee daily operations and position the company for growth as the industry continues to evolve, it added.

“He brings a strong background in conventional and digital printing technologies to our organization,” CEO Carol Neyenesch-Bentley said in the release.
