Andrew S. Field
, President and CEO
Andrew founded Express Color Printing in 1996 to serve the Montana printing market. After discovering that Montana has more elk and bison than print buyers, Andrew and his small team launched PrintingForLess.com in 1999, building the first true e-commerce commercial printing company. Andrew was named Montana's Entrepreneur of the Year in 2004 for his contributions to the local economy, and was recognized by Winning Workplaces and Fortune Small Business as a winner of the 2005 Best Bosses Award for innovative approaches that have created a high-performance workplace.
Andrew cultivates a dynamic culture that both empowers and inspires PFL's people. Leading by example, he embraces challenge and strives to keep PFL ahead of the curve in technology innovation. He serves on the board of Epicomm
(Association for Leaders in Print, Mail, Fulfillment, and Marketing Services), and is active in Young Presidents Organization
Andrew's affinity for the printing business began when he learned to run a press in high school and got a job at a local print shop in his home town of San Mateo, California. From there he worked for print shops in Minneapolis and Los Angeles, until switching careers to sales and business management when he moved to Montana in 1989. Andrew, never one to sit passively, took action to capitalize on his printing knowledge by creating PrintingForLess.com, targeting a niche in both the printing and .com industries.
A competitive swimmer as a youth, he now dabbles in skiing and fly fishing, and enjoys floating the Yellowstone River. Andrew's devotion to his border collie, Jessie, was the inspiration for PFL's dog-friendly environment
. He is inspired by PFL's tens of thousands of small business customers, the fine people he works with and the opportunity PFL creates for them to live their dreams in Montana.

, Vice President of Human Resources, Strategy and Development
Marne Reed has personally recruited more employees during her HR career to date than many of us will work with over a lifetime. Her role of leading the search for the right people and securing the right benefits to keep them happy is mission critical to the continuing growth of PrintingForLess.com.
Since joining the company in April 2002, Marne has been at the helm of PrintingForLess.com's successful initiatives to provide high-value benefits without breaking a small-business budget. The birth of her son, Nicholas, and lack of local childcare options helped prompt the push for the state of Montana's only company-owned, licensed childcare facility in 2003 to meet the needs of the company's current and future working parents.
Marne has worked heavily with PrintingForLess.com's management team to translate its key people strategy into an effective hiring process and implementing a metrics-based performance evaluation system. Her background in human resources and recruiting has been invaluable in finding top talent from around the country to enable the company to keep up with its steady growth spurt. She gained experience in the field from 1997-2002 working for and winning awards at AppleOne Employment and handling rapid growth needs at a corporate HR department in Boulder, Colorado.
In addition to overseeing the Human Resources and Support departments, Marne has recently taken over leading the Software Development and Business Analyst groups. Delivering intuitive, high value, mission critical software has become Marne's new passion at PFL.
Marne grew up in rural New Mexico and moved to Montana in search of new challenges. Marne attended college in Oklahoma and Albuquerque. As committed as she is to her work, she's an even more devoted family-lover who lives for spending time with her husband, her two sons and two step sons both in Montana outdoor adventures and more home-bound pursuits such as cooking and landscaping.

Wyeth Windham is someone who is never at a loss for words or the wherewithal to get a job done.

As co-manager of PrintingForLess.com's production facility since 2004, Wyeth has been instrumental in coordinating process development efforts to ramp up the plant's throughput and staff productivity to record levels.
Born and raised in Bozeman, Montana, Wyeth earned his degree in business marketing and Spanish literature and language from Montana State University in 2003. His degree pursuit included a school year studying in Spain along with his wife, Diana.
Wyeth enjoys cooking, a good movie, being out in Montana and sharing his time with friends and family over great food and good wine.
