postnet and deca

PostNet is devoted to supporting America’s next generation of business owners. For the last several years, our Neighborhood Business Centers have been a key partner for entrepreneurs who are starting their own firms in the wake of the Great Recession, supporting America’s small businesses by offering digital printing, direct mail and online marketing solutions as well as help with shipping and logistics. As small businesses continue to power America’s recovery, we expect today’s high school and college students to play a leading role.

That’s why PostNet was so excited last year to announce our partnership with DECA — an organization that prepares students for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. Our more than 300 Neighborhood Business Centers have worked with students to sponsor and judge competitions designed to foster business skills and help them understand the power of entrepreneurship.

Now Steve Greenbaum will enjoy the chance to speak with DECA participants directly.

PostNet’s partnership with DECA has reached a new pinnacle and this year, PostNet CEO and Undercover Boss guest star, Steve Greenbaum, will headline the DECA International Career Development Conference opening general session on April 24, 2013. During this session, Greenbaum will also be presented with DECA’s Entrepreneurial Spirit Award. Greenbaum is also the Honorary Chair of the Executive Mentor Program that engages high-level executives in roundtable mentorship discussions with a group of 650 graduating high school seniors participating in DECA’s Senior Management Institute.

PostNet is thrilled to play a part in the life of so many young adults who are exploring the world of business. Steve and PostNet President and COO Brian Spindel started their first business in their early 20s, and have 30 years of experience fostering their dreams as well as the dreams of more than 700 franchisees worldwide. Inspiring and educating people with similar curiosity and drive is a passion — and knowing that each PostNet franchisee contributes to the success of countless businesses in their own communities… well, that makes our business even more gratifying.
