May Pub Talk - Reinvention:Keeping Your Business Relevant

Come and meet Lou Butera (Owner CORE Direct Print)

Lou Butera has been a resident of Oregon for about 11 years.  He currently is owner of  CORE Print Direct (formerly Cascade Printing) in Corvallis and is a partner with his wife of Eugene Yoga, now expanding into two yoga studios in Eugene.  Lou holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Communications, Printing Management at California Polytechnic State University, and a Master’s in Business Administration from Pepperdine University. 

Having worked for some of the largest printing companies in the world, Lou decided to venture into business ownership about 8 ½ years ago purchasing Cascade Printing, then made another purchase of Eugene Yoga about 4 years later. 

His talk called “Reinvention: Keeping Your Business Relevant” is about the necessary changes to keep a capital intensive business viable amidst fast changing technology and amidst the forces of the internet which have been changing the nature of print demand. Lou currently lives in Eugene, has been married for 31 years, and has 3 daughters, all living on the west coast.
