Robert Keane is the Founder of Vistaprint and the CEO of its parent company, Cimpress. Robert first founded Vistaprint in 1995 to provide small businesses print tools to market their business. Robert’s vision for Vistaprint emerged from his experience with the development of a retail kiosk design and printing system as well as from his knowledge of the small business desktop publishing software market.
In 1994, Cimpress founder Robert Keane wanted to give small business owners access to the same high-quality, custom-printed products that bigger companies (with bigger print budgets) enjoyed. 20 years and over 200 patents later, Robert continues to lead Cimpress, which is now the world leader in mass customization and a remarkable success story that has gone from startup to over $1.5 billion in annual revenues.
