President and CEO of Monotype Imaging in 2006. His CV says: In 1986, he co-founded the OEM type software business at Compugraphic Corp. In 1989, when Agfa-Gevaert Inc. merged with Compugraphic, Givens headed an expanded division of the OEM type group as vice president and general manager as part of the U.S. operation. Under his leadership, the OEM type business grew into a worldwide force in the design and development of fonts and font technologies for printer manufacturers, software developers and creative professionals. In 1998, Givens led the merger of Agfa Corp.s Typographic Systems Division and Monotype Typography, a company with a rich history of more than 100 years in font development. The combined organization became Agfa Monotype Corp. In 2004, Givens spearheaded the management-led initiative to separate from Agfa. In November, 2004, TA Associates, a leading private equity and buyout firm, became the majority share owner of the new company, Monotype Imaging Inc.
