Mark Barnhart

Owner and CEO

NPC, Inc.

Mark Barnhart is owner and CEO of NPC, Inc., an integrated print and digital solutions provider in Central Pa. Under Barnhart’s leadership, NPC, Inc. has grown from a small traditional printing company to a broader information solutions provider that employs nearly 500 people. The company has also appeared on the Best Places to Work in Pa. list for eight consecutive years.

After receiving his degrees from The Kiski School and Penn State, Barnhart purchased News Printing Company from his parents in 1987. In 2001, he renamed the company NPC, Inc.

Barnhart is a visible leader in his local community, charitably supporting local food banks, libraries, YMCA’s, educational foundations and multiple organizations supporting military veterans. He takes pride in the continued development of Barneywood, a private nine-hole golf course where he is able to relax and foster relationships with all NPC stakeholders.

“[I want to] stop the ‘brain drain’ of young people feeling like they have to leave the area to get ‘good jobs,’” Barnhart said.

In his spare time, Barnhart serves on the boards of several local companies, Mount Aloysius College and the Giorgio Foundation that supports neurofibromatosis research.

Barnhart also enjoys spending time with his wife, Karen, and their family.
