Steve Anzalone, Principal
At Anzalone Advisors, we’re more than just print management consultants. We are drivers of change, helping companies improve culture, productivity, performance, and ultimately their bottom line. By working together, we can help you identify challenges, visualize potential, and transform your business for the better.
The commercial print and graphic communications industry is rapidly evolving. By making the necessary shifts in culture and adopting improved processes today, you can ensure your business is secure tomorrow and in the future. With nearly four decades of experience, let us partner with you to apply our knowledge and expertise to locate the intersection of employee engagement and operational excellence.
Anzalone Advisors offers a wide range of management and human resources consulting services to help your business succeed. We wear many hats, but our main focus areas fall into the following categories. If you have an issue that doesn’t fall within these groupings, no problem – give us a call and we’ll be happy to talk through your issue.
“Is this thing working?” Every business has at least one, if not many, projects that need an honest outsider’s opinion. That’s where we come in. Whether you need to take a hard look at your overall workflow, improve productivity, or justify the costs of adding software and equipment, Anzalone Advisors can provide an objective assessment of the state of your business and offer recommendations for improvement or implementation of new processes.
Not sure if your costing and pricing procedures are up to snuff? By providing proven financial methodologies for budgeting, standards, and pricing, we make sure you’re positioned for profitability. We help shape strategic planning, set key performance indicators (KPIs) and other metrics to keep growth and development headed in the right direction. We also operate in a merger and acquisitions advisory capacity.
HUMAN RESOURCES CONSULTING
Working with people can be the most rewarding, and oftentimes frustrating, part of any leader’s job. We work with you to implement straightforward HR processes that improve communication, define and measure expectations, and elevate culture. Other services we offer include leadership development, change management, team building, and coaching.
Not every exit is carefully planned or sometimes there is just a need for an additional pair of hands. Fill the vacancy on a temporary or longer-term basis with an experienced print executive who can work with your team to streamline processes, improve results, and develop talent.
As an owner or executive it can be “lonely at the top” – but it doesn’t have to be. This retainer-based relationship provides you with a right-hand advisor and sounding board. Tailored to fit your needs, this role is normally a combination of on-site visits, regularly scheduled calls, and financial performance analysis.

Our expertise is called up often to work with groups for short-term and long-term engagements. These include:
– Peer group facilitation
– Meeting planning
