“It is with a heavy heart that I announce my retirement”, says Frantz. “I am truly blessed to have worked with the greatest clients, vendors, employees and management that anyone could ever ask for. I have no regrets and will cherish the memories and experiences I have had at Huston Patterson and Sigma Graphics.”

In 1991, Frantz ventured back west, this time to Wichita where he became the VP of Production & Sales for Printing, Inc.  In 1995, he was offered the position of VP of Sales for Midland Litho and decided to move back to Kansas City. In 2000, Frantz moved back to Decatur as Huston Patterson’s VP of Sales & Marketing and then became Chief Operating Officer, assuming that responsibility not only at HP but at Sigma Graphics as well.
