Rolling Meadows, Illinois – Modagrafics is addressing a key market segment as part of its business plan and has hired Brian Leyden as the company’s new Director of Retail Sales. Leyden joins Modagrafics with 28 years of branded environment experience and reports to Paul Pirkle, President & CEO of Modagrafics.
Leyden is the former owner of a commercial and retail printing company, which he sold in 2002 after servicing major local and corporate accounts. He has spent the past 15 years creating and managing in-store permanent and promotion graphics for the retail industry. In his new position at Modagrafics, Leyden will be responsible for managing the company’s retail division in the U.S. and Canada.
“I’ve known Brian for many years and he’s the right guy for this job,” said Pirkle. “We have many plans for the retail sector and you’ll be hearing more about this in the coming months. Brian’s experience in retail graphics will be very important for us as we look to drive and build our business.”
“Paul and I have crossed paths over the years and came close to working together in the past,” recalled Leyden. “When he reached out to me, I saw the direction he was taking Modagrafics in and I liked the culture of the company. Considering the investments in systems and the state-of-the-art digital equipment they’ve made in the last 18 months, I thought the timing was right.”
