Dan Steinborn, Founder & President
In 1995, two years after graduating with an undergraduate in Public Relations from The University of Texas at Austin, Dan founded Corporate Communications of Austin, a regional graphic design and print brokering firm. Five years later, Corporate Communications of Austin embarked on an ambitious online business strategy and launched PrintGlobe.com. Today, PrintGlobe.com operates the largest business printing superstore online and has earned business from more than 30% of the Fortune 500 companies and over 30,000 customers.
Entering its eighth consecutive year of double-digit growth, PrintGlobe was named by the Austin Business Journal one of the “50 Fastest Growing Companies” in 2006 and 2007 and has also been awarded “Best 50 Places” to work in Central Texas. PrintGlobe has also been recognized by the Inc. 5000 in 2007, 2008 and 2009. Recently, Dan was invited by Google to serve as a member of its national Google AdWords Advertiser Council, a select group of marketing executives who provide strategic advice and feedback to Google. In his personal time, Dan enjoys live music and mountain biking and has served as a campaign advisor to political candidates.
Dan has been a member of TAB since 2004. Lessons learned from fellow board members have helped Dan and PrintGlobe grow the company from $3,000,000 in sales to more than $10,000,000 in 2010. Dan stated in a recent interview, “I made a great decision several years ago to join the Austin TAB organization and be part of a monthly board meeting with other business owners of growth companies. They’ve inspired and counseled me and helped me to push the limits of what I thought I could do.”
