After a hiatus from the consulting world in a key strategic role at Mimeo, Charlie Corr is back at InfoTrends, and the consulting community welcomes him back! He will have a great deal to contribute in his new role at InfoTrends. During his time at Mimeo, he had a great deal of opportunity to add to his already deep understanding of the enterprise document environment, and will bring that expertise to this role. For his enterprise clients, Charlie’s knowledge about the world of printing and publishing, going back to the 13 years he spent running the print operation at Harvard where he implemented a number of innovations, and including the years he spent at InfoTrends and Mimeo, will be a huge benefit. Charlie combines both operational and strategic skills, a unique combination that is hard to come by. InfoTrends will certainly benefit by his return
