Brooke Hamilton, president and CEO, NPI.
NPI (formerly Nameplates, Inc.) announced Brooke Hamilton will take the helm of the company as president and CEO. Hamilton has served as president since January 2012 and will now also serve as CEO with the retirement of current CEO Claudia Hamilton, who will assume the role of chairman.
“I am thrilled to have my daughter succeed me as CEO to carry on the legacy my mother started decades ago,” said Chairman Claudia Hamilton. “Brooke has consistently proven she understands our mission, and cares about our employees and customers. I believe she will bring continual growth to NPI.”
NPI is a third-generation, family-owned and woman-led printing and product identification manufacturing company located in the Pearl District near downtown Tulsa. The company, which currently employs approximately 60, was founded by Marjorie Conley in 1973 and was then extended to her daughter Claudia and now her granddaughter, Brooke.
“I am honored to be named president and CEO,” said Brooke Hamilton. “Being a part of this company has played a huge part in my success in the business world, as well as my personal development within the community. My grandmother and mother have impacted me with such great examples of how a business leader should conduct themselves. I am excited to follow in their footsteps and see forth the development and growth of our company.”
Brooke Hamilton started working at NPI while attending high school. After graduating from The University of Tulsa, she transitioned to a full-time position at NPI, learning every aspect of the business, from operating a machine to running the company.
In addition to her leadership at NPI, Hamilton is involved in the Tulsa community, serving as president of The Pearl District Business and Property Owners Association, and as a member of the Tulsa Regional Chamber’s Manufacturers’ Council.
Since the beginning, NPI was founded on the principals of quality products at a competitive price, providing a family- oriented work environment, while striving to give real solutions to every customer. Now in its 43rd year of service, NPI has built customer relationships with various industry leaders such as American Airlines, Halliburton, GE Oil & Gas and Schlumberger.
