Doug Pennington, owner of Lakeville, Minnesota-based Goldmine Mobile, had a humbling beginning in the print industry.
He started in the shipping department at OEI Business Forms, based in the Minneapolis area. He drove a forklift for a year until he was promoted to web press operator.
"The dream job at the time," Pennington recalled. "After being promoted to supervisor, I attended night school for business management which helped my career advancement to plant manager and finally to division manager in 1998. My career at OEI lasted nearly 20 years and I am proud to have been part of the Minnesota division that was always ranked a leader in reaching and exceeding the company's financial goals."
