How Kenneth A. Lanci is always ready to lend a hand

Kenneth A. Lanci, Chairman and CEO, Consolidated Graphics Group Inc.

It doesn’t take long to see the impact that Kenneth A. Lanci has had on the Greater Cleveland community. Just read this letter from a high school senior at the Cleveland School of the Arts.

“Mr. Lanci, it is a pleasure and an honor to be blessed with the opportunities that the Cleveland School of the Arts has given me,” writes Chris. “I would like to thank you for blessing the Cleveland School of the Arts because in doing so, you ensure the futures of countless young artists to thrive in their craft. Without the resources and assistance of people like you, these things would not be possible. So once again, thank you.”

Lanci is chairman and CEO at Consolidated Graphics Groups Inc. and it’s a business that he is very proud of. But it may not equal the joy he feels when he looks at what he’s been able to accomplish through Project Love, a nonprofit that helps countless children in Northeast Ohio do things that they otherwise would find it very difficult to do.

“Thank you for funding the ‘Give the Gift of Sight’ program,’” writes another letter from a girl named Ashley. “I can finally read a book without the book up close to my face. Thank you for helping me see better. You helped me out a lot. Thanks again for helping me see.”

Lanci is out front on many of these philanthropic efforts, but he relies a great deal on his strong team of employees to achieve what Consolidated Graphics Group has been able to do. Helping out in the community is part of the company’s culture and it’s a credit to Lanci’s leadership and his selfless commitment to others that this help has made such a difference.
