Expert, approachable and committed, our people really are our greatest asset
From the outset, PremCom has been about delivering what our clients actually need. We pride ourselves on the quality of our team which continues to grow and develop. We’re always on the lookout for talented people with pride, flair and a thirst for personal and professional development.
We’re made up of account managers, agency-level creatives and designers, print production professionals, full-stack developers and data experts. Everything clients need to make their campaigns successful and so generate the required ROI.
- Marco Poli
Marco founded PremCom in 1990, drawing on the skills and experience he had gained both within the print industry and as a print buyer for the Woolwich Building Society. While working in print gave him a solid grounding across a broad spectrum of hardware and techniques, Marco’s experience of the client side, with its constant pressure to deliver results, made him realise that a report-driven, measurable print solution was sorely needed.
This understanding of what the client needs from a print management service is central to PremCom’s success. From the outset, the company has embraced the latest print technology, but Marco is equally passionate about the industry’s heritage, retaining the capacity for small litho print runs to this day. Under his guidance, PremCom is constantly investigating and investing in the latest technology, without ever losing sight of the critical human element.
