Cupertino, CA - IO Integration (IOI), a systems integrator focused on building workflow efficiencies for advertising agencies, commercial printers, prepress providers and retail publishers, expands its team by adding a National Sales Manager and several other key employees.
IO Integration begins the 2010 New Year by adding several new faces to their organization. Most notable is the hiring of Ron Di Torro as IOI North American Sales Manager. Ron comes to IOI from Adobe Systems, where he was a top performer on the Media & Publishing Team since 1999, calling on global advertising/marketing communications companies. Prior to that, he managed the reseller channel and major account business for the Tektronix Color Printing & Imaging Division in their Mid-Atlantic region. Ron brings with him vast industry knowledge and experience, and will leverage his skills to manage an expanding IO Integration sales force.
"Ron is a fantastic addition to the IOI team," says Mike Holt, CEO of IO Integration. "As we continue to grow our sales force, I found it vital that we find the right person to manage an already dynamic group of sales professionals to lead us through this next chapter of our growth," continues Holt.

He brings with him 25 years of graphic arts expertise at almost every level. Dave owned one of the first fully computerized design studios in New York City, and his resume includes the titles of Art Director, Creative Director, Production Manager, and Workflow Consultant for a number of advertising agencies. Dave's client-side experience positions him well for this growing sales region within IOI.
