Mark Bollin, Presidentmbollin@bollin.com
Mark guides the leadership team in its mission to partner with distributors in supplying top-quality label products to supermarkets, food processors, and a host of non-food manufacturers. He and his team are respected leaders in the industry and have proven to be reliable manufacturers who deliver products in a timely fashion to ensure the success of their customers.
During his 40 years at Bollin Label Systems, the parent company of Supermarket Labels, Mark has directed all areas of the business. Among other things, he oversees the printing and production of the company's extensive line of labels. Mark spearheaded the purchase of Esko Artwork, the finest prepress system in the print industry. This — combined with the company's flexographic print technologies — produces the highest quality labels. (Bollin Label Systems was named one of the "Top 100 Manufacturers of Printed Products" by Print Professional Magazine, October 2010.)
Mark supports the Toledo community in a number of ways, serving on several committees and boards including past president and board of director of the East Toledo Family Center and former advisory board member of the East Toledo Senior Center. He enjoys golf and practices tirelessly to improve his short game.
Chris Bollin Younkman, Vice Presidentcyounkman@bollin.com
Chris has worked in every department and taken on almost every role at Bollin Label Systems at one time or another. "I've done just about everything but run a press!"
Chris has directed sales, inventory management, shipping, accounting, human resources, and administration. In recent years, she has focused on order fulfillment to ensure customers get what they want, when they want it. She has been instrumental in creating cost savings — savings passed on to customers — by staging orders, resulting in greater efficiency in the distribution and shipping processes. This became possible when the company built its 21,000-square-foot warehouse in 2005. In addition to order processing and warehouse management, Chris oversees the Customer Resource Group.
As a business owner her work never ends, but Chris manages to escape to the beach in Treasure Island, Florida a few times a year to rejuvenate. More than anything else, she and her husband enjoy spoiling their granddaughter, Payton.

Mark has been instrumental in product expansions, such as the recent addition of promotional coupons. He's also helped Supermarket Labels' parent company, Bollin Label Systems, to develop FreshDate food safety labels, designed for the food and restaurant industries.
Mark, who earned his bachelor's degree in microbiology from Bowling Green State University, says he's still a "science geek" and enjoys the application of scientific technologies to his work. When not at his office, Mark and his wife enjoy spending time with their four grown children who all live within a 3-hour radius of "home."
