Robert van Velzen, owner and President of The FSA Group, passed away last week in Toronto. He founded Fulfillment Solutions Advantage (FSA) Inc. back in 1993 as unique direct-marketing company that leveraged both print and database technologies, while also anticipating the maturation of the World Wide Web and email-based communications.
Today, The FSA Group continues as one of the most-innovative companies involved the communications industry, based on its FSA Datalytics, FSA Delivery Net and FSA Media divisions.
The company’s services include data processing and management, lettershop, laser personalization, warehousing and fulfillment, data entry, customer service and order processing, Web hosting, email distribution, contest management, print management, and toner-based printing.
Van Velzen was well known for commitment to his community and volunteering his time and talent on many boards, while his business acumen is best described in an obituary: “As an entrepreneur, Rob was a visionary and lone wolf, always ahead of the curve. As a leader, Rob was a man who inspired loyalty and a desire to achieve and succeed.”
