The remanufacturer has hired Doug Johnson and Dan Todd as CSO and COO respectively.
The expansion of the company’s senior leadership team will see Johnson “continue LMI’s corporate expansion initiatives”, reporting as Chief Strategy Officer “directly” to President and CEO Gary Willert, and LMI added that Johnson is “well known by imaging dealers on a global scale for his field-proven ability to coach, mentor and operationalise managed print programmes that combine dealer profitability and end-user satisfaction”.
Johnson’s previous experience includes leadership roles at HP, Print Inc. and Supplies Network, and LMI noted that his experience “will be instrumental in the ongoing expansion of LMI’s ability to offer dealers a true OEM alternative for printers, toner and parts from a single aftermarket source”. Todd meanwhile brings over 20 years of imaging industry experience, including “several leadership positions” including at MKIC/Future Graphics, where he was responsible for “global operations and all related departments”.
Todd’s role at the company will be Chief Operating Officer, where – the remanufacturer stated – his “knowledge and expertise in the aftermarket imaging arena will provide LMI dealers with a competitive edge in the areas of product development, innovation and fulfilment”. Both Johnson and Todd can be contacted at LMI Solutions through its global headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona.
Johnson commented that “LMI is an undisputed toner quality leader with award winning infrastructure capabilities so I’m really excited about the growth potential for LMI and their dealers with the recent acquisitions of Parts Now and Global Printer Services”. In turn, Todd added that “working previously at one of LMI’s vendor partners, I have long admired LMI Solutions as a customer-focused organisation and I am thrilled about the opportunity to help LMI dealers win more business with world class manufacturing and operations behind them”.
Willert stated: “Doug and Dan bring tremendous credibility to our unwavering commitment to the prosperity of our current and future LMI customers. We have a very compelling story for dealers when they combine an LMI printer with LMI toner and LMI parts, and these guys will help our dealers leverage our new value position as a true OEM alternative.”
