Meet Our Leadership Team
Owner & CEO
HardingPoorman has been recognized nationally and by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce as one of the “Best Places to Work”. In 2012, David was inducted into the printing industry’s Hall of Fame.
Prior to HardingPoorman, David owned The Printing Company for seventeen years, eventually selling it to a consolidator. The Printing Company was elected to the Management Plus Hall of Fame of the National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL). Before starting the Printing Company, David was a radio news reporter and talk show host for twelve years.
Today, Dave concentrates on using his vast experience to guide HardingPoorman to continuous growth and improvement.
HardingPoorman has the reputation of being staffed by vibrant, colorful professionals who simply love print and Bob Poorman was no exception. Bob was the rule. Sadly, Bob died in 2014 after a battle with ALS but his spirit remains throughout our shop.
As a company, we continue to celebrate the life and work of Bob Poorman, who contributed tirelessly to the business of print. Over a span of 25 years, Bob built Shepard Poorman Communications and HardingPoorman, two of the largest commercial printers in Indianapolis, Indiana. If you tour our facilities, you'll see and feel Bob's impact and influence inside our culture. Bob will always be a valued member of the HardingPoorman team.
Dustin Kendall, the new president, has had his own long tenure with HardingPoorman, at 14 years. His experience in the industry goes back nearly 30. Beginning as an hourly wage employee in hand bindery, he worked up to pressroom and prepress, then into a supervisory role. He then spent years as a CSR, account executive, and account manager before becoming a quality director and most recently vice president of client services.
He says those years in both the back and front end of the building “gave me enormous respect for every person involved in a job.” And, it allows him to speak from experience and quickly problem-solve for clients because he understands the work from all angles.
VP of Operations
After completing a 2-year graphic design program at Arlington High School, Eddie joined the industry at 18 and never looked back. Now, after over 30 years, he’s what you’d call “well-versed.” He began in label printing, moved to offset, then became a press operator for sheet-fed and web press. He’s also been heavily involved in color management and prepress. And now, he oversees HardingPoorman’s digital presses.
Eddie’s approach is “always leave it better than you found it.” And he believes this applies to more than production. He takes his role in mentorship and coaching seriously – understanding he’s not just improving the company, but each person he manages and supports in their roles at HardingPoorman.
