A very Happy 40th Anniversary to JACK SPRINGER JR., who began his national record promotion career on FEBRUARY 22, 1976, and moved from PROGRESS RECORD DISTRIBUTORS in CLEVELAND to head of Pop Promotion for MIKE CURB -- spending 6 years in LOS ANGELES. Moving back to CLEVELAND to be closer to his family, he began TEKNICOLOUR MARKETING SERVICES. INC with a phone and a fax machine in a small office above the FLAT IRON in THE CLEVELAND FLATS.
Since TEKNICOLOUR’s inception, SPRINGER has been awarded over 140 Gold and Platinum Plaques in appreciation of the work he is doing in raising major label’s artists to International success.
In 1995, JACK's wife, SarA (SANDY DOWNS) joined the erupting national company - having been married 27 years, together 31 and running a business together 24/7 and they have a blast! Having both come from CLEVELAND bands -- JACK played in HARLEQUIN COLOR, MOSES AND MOUSE in the '70s and SARA played in GYPSY, VALKYRIE AND NORTHCOAST GIRLS in the '80s -- they use their expertise to break bands today.
Of his success SPRINGER said, “It’s all about our 6 R’s – Rock and Roll, radio, rollercoasters, religion, racing and arrrrrrrgh, matey."
