PSA Featured Star
A Heartfelt Tribute to Our Very First Employee
Our founder Mark Hintz first met Kathy Paulhamus almost 40 years ago when they worked together at Grit Magazine, a 600,000 circulation weekly. Kathy was the fulfillment manager, and she was quiet, detail oriented, incredibly smart, and knew magazine fulfillment inside and out. Eighteen years and many jobs later, when Mr. Hintz made the decision to start a high quality fulfillment company, Kathy was the first person he called. She was essential to the start up of PSA due to the breadth and depth of her knowledge. “Without Kathy, I’m not sure I ever would have started the company,” Mr. Hintz said.
Kathy is the type of person who will do any job necessary to help the company. Now, a 20 year veteran of Publishers Service Associates, Kathy is retiring. We will miss her personally, and we will always be thankful to her for her honesty, her faithfulness to the company, and her kindness to others. Kathy, you’re truly an inspiration!
