This Week at Rotary
Founded in 1994, the Institute for Family-Owned Business (IFOB) is a nonprofit organization committed to supporting, strengthening and empowering family-owned businesses throughout Maine.  We strive to be a comprehensive resource for family business owners, executives, and employees. With the support and input of our members, associate partners, and sponsors, we continue to grow and welcome new participants who are availing themselves of our over 40 programs, educational opportunities, and events—more than 1,000 people in the past year alone!
Catherine joined the IFOB in 2014 as its executive director.  Prior to joining, she was the executive director of the Boothbay Harbor Region Chamber of Commerce where she oversaw the 50th Anniversary of Windjammer Days, developed the Claw Down Lobster Bite Competition, and annually produced the region’s definitive travel guide.  She is a graduate of the Maine Association of Nonprofits’ Executive Leadership Institute. 

Jennifer Nemi is a member of the third generation of a family-owned printing business, Franklin Printing in Farmington, Maine.  Her grandfather Joseph Nemi started the company in the late 1960’s by purchasing the Livermore Falls Advertiser and Franklin Journal.  In the late 70’s, early 80’s Joe’s two sons came on board, Greg and Dick. The business expanded throughout the 70’s and 80’s by continually increasing its commercial printing sales. In 1986, at the urging requests of his sons, Joe decided to sell the newspaper business and focus solely on commercial printing. Over the years Franklin Printing has continued to grow and reinvest its profits into the most advanced equipment in technology. In 2008 it moved into the digital printing business adding another market segment to the mix. Today their services range from offset printing to wide format and they are one of the top 24 finalists for the Maine Family Business Awards.
