PRESENTERS

Jordan Darragh, Founder and CEO of PrintReleaf
Jordan Darragh is a graduate of Michigan State University. He began his career in sales and marketing at LaserCycle Imaging—one of the largest direct providers of managed print services in the Western United States. Following a successful stint at LaserCycle Imaging, he held a senior business development position with EnerNOC, a company that develops virtual power plants providing demand response during peak demand on the electric grid. The EnerNOC focus is on energy efficiency, carbon accounting, and energy supply management.
Having firmly established his printing and environmental credentials, in 2011 Jordan founded PrintReleaf, a company that helps businesses reduce their environmental impact by connecting them to the PrintReleaf Exchange [PRX], a patented software platform connecting enterprise printer environments to a network of global reforestation projects where customers can have trees planted to reforest (or “releaf”) their paper consumption. Under Jordan’s direction, PrintReleaf has enjoyed considerable success responding to demand for reforestation services in the managed print services area, including establishing relationships with partners such as Toshiba, Clover Imaging Group, EFI, Publication Printers, and hundreds more. The company recently broadened efforts into the commercial and quick printing areas, enabling print-for-pay businesses to offer reforestation services to their customers.
