Craig attended college at Tarkio College in Tarkio, MO. He went on to graduate school at the University of Kansas.
After a successful 26-year career in the public sector, in early 1994, Craig, with wife Susan & daughter Christy founded Pictographics as a sole proprietorship. Pictographics adopted state-of-the-art large-format, color-digital printing to provide superior photographic-quality.
The family incorporated the Company in 1997 as Advanced Technologies Management, Inc (ATMi). Craig had expanded the business to include technical consulting and training along with systems integration sales. These products and services fell under the ATMi identity. Over the years, ATMi evolved into R&D and developmental testing for companies like Intel, AMD, Apple, Texas Instruments, FLIR Systems, John Deere, 3M, and Avery Dennison, to name a few.
In 2002 the Small Business Administration named Craig, his wife Susan, and daughter Christy Stevens Small Businesspersons of the Year. In 2005 the family team was honored nationally by Large-Format Imaging Magazine and SGIA with the “Business Excellence of the Year Award.” Craig, Susan, and Christy also graced that magazine’s cover. Craig was the recipient of the 2012 CMG “Vision Award” and the 2013 Nevada Business Magazine “Wave of the Future Award.”
Craig was a founding and board member of Global Imaging Group and is currently a member of the SGS Advisory Council and the ST Media Editorial Advisory board. Craig has written a technical column in The Big Picture Magazine for over a decade and is a frequent speaker at industry events. Craig was appointed to the US Department of Commerce’s District Export Council in 2014.
In 2017 ATMi evolved the Company to adopt 3D printing and additive manufacturing. This includes very large 3D, photographic-quality-color 3D, and technology which allows for quality and quantity production.
