New Owners bring new energy to Alphagraphics in Hartford

The Team at AlphaGraphics in Greenwich & Hartford is excited to welcome our new owners, Nick von der Wense and his wife Vicki. Nick and Vicki have lived and worked in Fairfield County for nearly 7 years now, after relocating to the Greater New York City area so Nick could pursue a Senior Executive role in Marketing at Neopost Inc. Nick led the Digital Transformation Strategy for the 1200 employees and 210,000 users of Neopost’s online shipping, mailing and printing app store. Nick left Neopost as the VP of Digital Marketing, and joined Billtrust, a Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs funded software firm in NJ as VP of Marketing, that raised over $100M and is recognized consistently as a leading firm the Financial Technology (Fintech) space. During his time at Billtrust, the marketing team was recognized for a 41% marketing to revenue contribution percentage, considered best in market. Nick left his product position at start up Yaypay.com in New York City,  where he worked on artificial intelligence products used to predict payments in commercial banking spaces to look for his own venture. Vicki, a graduate of the Parsons School of Design in New York City, now well known as the setting time as the location of hit TV shows such as Project Runway, is raising two boys, while continuing to work in Graphic Design after an early career in Washington D.C. Collectively the two have over 30 years experience in digital design, marketing and have worked with such brands as Coca-Cola, Under Armour, NASA, AFL-CIO, Microsoft, Shutterfly, & FedEx on the national scale, while serving numerous small and medium sized businesses and nonprofits such as Boys and Girls Clubs of NJ and CT. Nick specialized in growth strategies for marketing, where he consistently hit 30% revenue growth targets with marketing, print, event and product budgets. Why leave a now thriving start-up to run a local business? “Software startup's are exciting, dynamic and thrilling, but my ambition to build my own thriving business without the pain of starting over lead me to buy these centers to grow and thrive. Brands come to life through print, design and the web” Nick commented, “our goal is to own and run a local business that can thrive in the digital world of tomorrow, while serving everyday organizations. We offer the most sophisticated Digital Print in the market with our Hewlett Packard Indigo Digital Press, that prints best quality Business Cards, letterhead, tri-fold, & mailings. We serve great brands in CT such as UCONN, Travelers, and The Hartford, while offering digital design, marketing and web stores.”                                 “We look forward to being active in our local community to learn more about your organization and how we can serve you. We see personalizing your media, bringing your brand to life via print, and digital marketing as the key to driving growth in 2019, let’s speak about how we can work to get your results improved.” Nick’s Linkedin page is www.linkedin.com/nvonderwense and is email is nvonderwense@alphagraphics.com.
