Wednesday, April 30, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

VALHALLA, N.Y. (April 29, 2008) - FUJIFILM Graphic Systems U.S.A., Inc. announced today the reorganization of its national sales team. The new structure is designed to allow the Fujifilm sales force to better serve and respond to customers' needs, both in terms of new technologies and equipment as well as with consumables and other supplies.

Todd Zimmerman will assume the new position of Vice President, Field Sales, while Phil Kane will take on the role of Vice President, National Equipment Sales. Zimmerman will oversee all four of the company's sales regions, as well as national accounts, pressroom products, newspaper products, Fujifilm sales specialists and dealer sales. Kane will lead digital equipment and electronic imaging sales.

Zimmerman and Kane, along with Steve Bennett, Vice President, Wide Format Sales, will report directly to Masahiro ("Sam") Ota, new president and CEO. Bennett will continue to oversee the wide format group, as it expands its service and equipment offerings.

"The graphic communications industry continues to change rapidly and our ability to respond to this change quickly and efficiently has allowed Fujifilm to remain an industry leader," said Zimmerman. "We believe that this new sales structure will better serve our customers and allow us to continue to provide them with the best solutions for their businesses."

Zimmerman joined Fujifilm (formerly Enovation Graphic Systems, Inc.) in 2006 as Vice President of National Accounts. A long time veteran of the graphic arts industry, Zimmerman previously worked for Kodak (and Kodak Polychrome Graphics), where he held several sales and sales management positions. Zimmerman has a Bachelor of Science degree in Trade Technical Education, Graphic Arts from Ferris State University, a Master of Technology in Graphic Communications from Arizona State University and a Master of Business Administration from Northwestern University.

Kane's worked with Fujifilm (formerly Enovation) since 2001, when he joined the company as Director of Business Development, Electronic Imaging. Prior to that position, Kane was National Sales Manager for Canopy, LLC, a joint-venture company formerly owned by PrimeSource Corporation and Xeikon, Vice President of Sales for Screen USA, Sales Manager for Phillips & Jacobs (which became part of PrimeSource in 1994) and Vice President of Sales for Howson Algraphy.
