MAN Roland selects Simon for Northeast newspapers, Day expands role

Press release from the issuing company

Westmont, Illinois — Craig Simon has been named to succeed the late Dick Conner as MAN Roland’s Regional Sales Manager in the Northeast for the company’s newspaper line of web presses. The territory encompasses the corporate headquarters of such media leaders as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and the Hearst Corporation. It includes an area ranging from Maine in the north, Ohio to the west and Maryland in the South. In accepting his new assignment, Simon plans to relocate from Chicago to New York. “Few executives in this industry know newspaper pressroom technology as well as Craig Simon does,” said Vincent Lapinski, COO of Web Operations at MAN Roland Inc. “In his years managing the support side, he has learned how to make all the pieces fit together successfully for our clients, ensuring that all of the details of every deal were taken care of completely. That level of focus will serve our customers well.” Gary Day, who currently manages sales administration for commercial web presses, will become Assistant Vice President, Web Sales Administration, and handle both web press segments. “Gary has been with us for over ten years, and during that time he has taken on increasingly higher levels of responsibility in service and administration,” Lapinski noted. “In his new position he will build on Craig’s work in the newspaper area, and apply his expertise for all of our web clients.”
