An avid fan of his University of Oregon Ducks, Dennis was born and raised in the printing industry where he and his family ran one of the largest and oldest printing plants in San Francisco, Howard Quinn Publishing Company. From his early days of learning the printing business to developing client relationships and partners throughout the western region, Dennis helped take a local business and spread it throughout the west where he finally settled in Portland. As the print market and the demand changed, Dennis and his team adapted and brought forth new technology and processes to take care of his clients such as Nike, Fred Meyer, Columbia Sportswear, Hollywood Video and others.
Dennis’s community service extended past his help at the Portland First Presbyterian Church to mentoring young men and women while he was a member of the board for Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metropolitan Area. The father of four girls and now 4 grandchildren, Dennis’ understanding and appreciation of the vulnerability of young girls is extremely acute. As one of the original founding members of PACT Board of Directors, Dennis’ vision is to see PACT develop a platform of care that can be provided through a network of partners standing together as one.
