Deb grew up in the family business, working summers with her mother in accounting and also doing toner deliveries. After attending the College of Notre Dame of MD and receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Arts, she ventured out to Hollywood to study at the American Film Institute. Deb decided to return to the city of her birth, Altoona, in 1992 and join WPS as the Branch Manager for the Central Pennsylvania Office. Over the years, Deb has been involved in all aspects of the company and has been a true change agent in developing managed print and network services.
In 2013, Deb was named President & CEO, focusing on growing the company by empowering every employee to be leaders and creating a culture of family. Along with her siblings, she created Doing Better Business, Inc., and acquired the assets of Van Dyk Business Systems in Pittsburgh, PA. Since then, they have acquired Total Service, Inc., in Latrobe, PA and the acquisition of WPS from their parents was completed on August 31, 2017.
Her success stems directly from the mission statement of Doing Better Business (DBB) and the desire to have every customer feel a part of the DBB Family. Under her leadership, WPS and DBB have earned Fortune Magazine’s Great Place to Work and Best Place to Work in Pennsylvania rankings. Deb participates in industry leadership roles, serving on the Ricoh National Dealer Council and is the current President of the Select Dealer Group. She has been honored in the Top 100 Business People of Central Pennsylvania and Women Making A Difference by the Pennsylvania Business Central Magazine several times, as well as winning the Blair County Chamber of Commerce Athena Award.
Outside of work, Deb enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, bicycling, and hiking with her miniature Goldendoodle, Bailey.
