About Me

After graduating from the University of Virginia in 1972, Mr. MacPherson spent ten years in various leadership positions in public accounting, public utility accounting, and manufacturing ??? including two years with Peat Marwick Mitchell & Company, one of the former Big-8 accounting firms. During that time, Mr. MacPherson owned and operated several companies, including a public accounting company and a residential construction company. In 1982 Mr. MacPherson purchased a Kwik Kopy quick-print franchise, which later became Performance Printing. During the next 20 years, Mr. MacPherson increased the sales of his quick-print company from $ 60,000 to $ 400,000 per month ??? making him the single largest franchisee in the Kwik Kopy system, and the 11th largest single-location quick-print company in America. Also, during that time, Mr. MacPherson started, purchased, sold, and/or merged nine different printing companies, including a division of a publicly held company. In 2002, Mr. MacPherson sold his interest in his printing company and spent the next 18 months converting his clients to the new owner.
