• Konica Minolta makes senior leadership appointments

        • Konica Minolta Business Solutions has announced key appointments to its senior leadership team. 

          From 1st April 2021, Mark Ash will assume the role of Chief Revenue Officer for the UK Group, covering all aspects of Sales, Marketing & Service. He will build on the advances made since joining the company in 2020, breaking down product and solution silos, driving multichannel engagement into growth areas and overseeing the company’s transformation beyond print. 

          This transformation will be built on Konica Minolta’s portfolio of digital workplace products, services and solutions, which includes IT managed services, data analytics and process automation capabilities. At the core of Mark’s new role is to drive the company’s customer and partner-centric philosophy. 

          Mark said, “every sale comes with a commitment to go above and beyond, to deliver value and a level of service that supports their business goals and exceeds expectations.

          “We responded to the impact of the pandemic by accelerating projects to deliver digital transformation. Today, I am excited by the talent, infrastructure and innovative technologies we have, which will enable all public and private sector organisations in the UK to realise significant efficiencies and successful adoption of new ways of working.”

          Joining Mark in the senior leadership team is the new Chief Finance and Operations Officer, Andy Clegg, with a remit to accelerate data and process automation. In doing so he will optimise the entire customer and partner experience. Andy has been a key contributor to the UK group and his promotion demonstrates the commitment Konica Minolta has to develop and promote internal talent. 

          The UK group is also in the process of recruiting a Chief Technology Officer, who will underpin Konica Minolta’s leading position in digital workplace technology, in areas such as data, analytics and cloud. 

          The senior leadership team is headed by CEO, Rob Ferris, who has led the transformation of the company since joining in May 2020. He added, “we have successfully pivoted our end-to-end UK group operating model. In doing so we are instilling a true customer and partner-centric approach in everything we do. Breaking down the silos that can exist in large corporate operations and accelerating our ability to provide world-class workplace technologies and services on a local level. Today, Konica Minolta is perfectly poised to better serve its customers and partners whilst also taking advantage of the post-pandemic opportunity for rapid, sustained and diversified growth.”
