Rod Bristol, GAA Director, served as GAA’s lead advisor for the owners of Plumb Marketing and noted, “It was a pleasure to work with the principals from both Plumb Marketing and Sun Print Solutions. Given that Denver is a growing market in a highly desirable city, GAA conducted a national search on behalf of the Epps which led to multiple offers from geographically diverse companies. The strategic and cultural fit with Sun Print Solutions stood head and shoulders above other prospective buyers.”

Mark Hahn, GAA Senior Managing Director, worked closely with the Epps and Rod Bristol to bring the search for the right buyer to a successful close and stated “I have known Lynndell and Briana for several years, and we also knew the owners of Sun from prior conversations and was aware of their strategic goal to acquire a location in a major mountain state city that would be adjunctive to their impressive facility in SLC. We are very pleased to have played a role in bringing these two successful companies together.”
