Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) announced Laura Blackmer, President, Dealer Sales, has been named as one of Tigerpaw Software’s 2022 Top 100 Influencers in the managed print industry.
The list recognises individuals in the office equipment channel who have been identified as major drivers of change and key voices to follow. Blackmer also made the inaugural list in 2021.
As part of the compilation process, Tigerpaw tracks evidence of thought leadership in a variety of venues, social influence including activity and reach, leadership outside people’s professional roles, and overall production of industry education and insight.
“We’ve heard from so many dealers and partners that the office equipment channel and managed print are ripe for change,” said Tigerpaw President and CEO James Foxall. “With shrinking margins, the shift to remote work and industry consolidation, businesses need to make changes to stay competitive. This list is an excellent opportunity to amplify the voices that bring fresh ideas to help managed print dealers thrive in a rapidly changing marketplace.”
In addition to their reach across multiple platforms, the final members of the list are found frequently at tradeshows, as guests on podcasts and video interviews, and contributing to organisations like the MPSA, the BTA, and CompTIA.
“I’m honoured to be listed among the most influential people in our industry, so many of whom I have the privilege of working with and know very well,” said Laura Blackmer, President, Dealer Sales, Konica Minolta. “Congratulations to everyone on this year’s list who has been working hard to manage the change and challenges our industry.”
“A huge congratulations and thank you to Laura for all her hard work and dedication to the channel,” said Sam Errigo, President and CEO, Konica Minolta. “Laura has provided incredible support to our dealers, working tirelessly to find ways to help them maintain business continuity through difficult times, and we are extremely proud of her success.”
