Rolling Meadows, IL, April 9, 2007 -- Komori America Corporation, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, today announced the promotion of Mark Hopkins to Regional Sales Manager for its Central East region. In his new position, Hopkins will oversee all aspects of selling, servicing and financing of new and used Komori presses. He will also be responsible for the management and coordination of five district sales managers strategically located across the Central East region. This new territory consists of eleven states: Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, as well as the Caribbean Islands.
Hopkins began his career with Komori working for HRB, the exclusive sales and service dealer organization for Komori headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio.
