"Based on my 30+ years in publishing: text books, college workbooks, phone books and industrial directories, I can honestly say, Rock LaManna is a gem of printing technology and the printing business!"
Robert Gibbons, Business Broker
Sunbelt Business Brokers
“I worked with Rock on the sale of two companies in the printing industry in which he owned interests, both with EBITDA in the lower middle market range and he was an active and thoughtful participant in both transactions who approached the transactions creatively and offered solutions to achieve a successful outcome for both parties.”
"Rock has been a terrific business strategist and life coach for me for over twenty years. No one single person has done more for me professionally than Rock has. His integrity and genuine concern for my success and personal well-being is unparalleled. Rock is passionate about the pursuit of excellence in everything we do in life - not just in business. I am especially grateful to Rock for his understanding about how needs and conditions change over time. He has done wonders to help me plan for life as it evolves - both at work and at home."
"Rock has an added role as my coach or mentor to help me stay on task and think bigger picture as it relates to sales and the business. It is working and has more value than we are paying Rock right now. I am motivated and energized and empowered to work smarter and more efficiently on delegating my daily tasks to focus on bigger picture items. Helping me helps our company. It already has."

Retired Chairman, Graphics Company
"Rock, I know in your profession it gets very frustrating when clients procrastinate, shoot the messenger, or decide to bail out after all that you have done for them to succeed. I am sure that you do not get the credit or the appreciation that you deserve from these people. I have seen you in action and I know that you are a winner. Your drive and enthusiasm is unmatched along with your desire to help people and companies exceed their potential. I think that your biggest asset is your ability to make people believe in themselves; that they can succeed and be the best. As for me I appreciate the time that you have invested in me at no cost to yourself and the knowledge and confidence that you have instilled in me. No matter what the future brings for either of us I hope that you will keep your drive and enthusiasm and know that if you ever need anything from me you have only to ask. And by the way I am not the only one who acknowledges that you are a winner."
