Corey Smith

Facilitator   |   LinkedIn

At 16, Corey ran an offset printing press for his father.

At 21, after a mission for his church in Albania, he bought and sold printing and graphics services. Corey taught himself how to use a $400 Macintosh to produce graphics that he could sell. IKON Office Solutions then hired him to use his self-taught graphics skills to run a graphics department for them in Salt Lake City in 1998… the same year Corey married his beautiful bride, Jennifer.

Together, Jen and Corey have five wonderful children.

Corey has always had a passion for business, technology and education. So, after working in the office equipment industry for over 8 years, teaching graphic design for Web at University of Utah, serving as a Color Systems Specialist for Canon USA, and going back to school for an undergraduate in Information Technology and a Master in Business administration, both from University of Phoenix, he started Tribute Media in 2007.

Corey has recently turned the reigns of Tribute Media over to a long-time trusted employee and friend and moved on to the role of Founder/Chief Vision Officer. He is now ready for his next move -- to start up something new.
