Lane has always had an interest in signage and design. After graduating from Miami University (Love & Honor) with a degree in Marketing and a brief stint working for Major League Soccer, Lane pursued a traditional corporate career path culminated in several leadership Sales & Marketing roles at publicly traded companies.
Lane comes from a long line of business owners and entrepreneurs and he and his wife launched her business in Madeira in the early 2000s. He also moonlighted as a design and branding consultant where he helped local Cincinnati companies create everything from company names and logos to web sites, promotional materials and brand stories.
After years of searching for the right business, Lane found FASTSIGNS Central Cincinnati in late 2016. The original owner Jeff Cline was retiring and looking for a successor. When Lane asked Jeff is he thought it was a good fit, Jeff replied, “If you’re looking for a sign, this is it.” Truer advice was never given.

Lane is excited to combine his branding, design and sales experience with a great signage team to continue building FASTSIGNS Central Cincinnati.
