Chairman of the Board
Driven to excellence with a track record of succeeding as a small company leader in a large company arena, John Ruggieri has utilized his Wharton MBA to build and sell successful companies. Bringing a strong financial and analytical background to the SunDance partnership, he and Audrey saw the potential in what was a fine art publisher when they bought SunDance in 2004. John loves managing every moving part of the “factory” as he affectionately calls the production facility. He also recognizes in today’s business climate of technological change, the factory must produce ideas more than just products for marketing executives today. His concern for the environment led him to work on a PhD in Wildlife Ecology from the University of Florida. This passion for saving the planet one act at a time, fueled his determination to see SunDance achieve all three green certifications. SunDance has recently become the first SGP (Sustainable Green Printer) certified commercial offset printer in the state of Florida. Striving to keep SunDance fluid and flexible for client benefit, the entrepreneurial spirit is kept alive and well thanks to John’s vision and intellect.
