New York-based Mimeo, a leading online printing and content distribution solutions company, announced that Adam Slutsky has decided to step down as chief executive officer and the board has unanimously elected John Delbridge as chief executive officer in addition to his current responsibilities as president. Slutsky, who has led Mimeo to 25 percent annualized growth since becoming CEO in 2005, will remain at the company through a transition period and will continue to serve the company as a member of its board of directors.
Delbridge is a founding team member of Mimeo and has previously held positions including chief financial officer, chief operating officer and, most recently, president of the company. Delbridge played a critical role in transitioning the company from a U.S.-based startup to global leader and was instrumental in raising capital, driving Mimeo’s growth across each of its businesses and spearheading Mimeo’s expansion to Western Europe in 2011.
Slutsky said, "The decision to move on at this time is made easy because of the keen intellect, broad experience, and dynamic leadership skills of John Delbridge. There is no question in my mind that John is going to take Mimeo to even greater heights."
"Mimeo’s future couldn’t be brighter," Delbridge said. "Adam has been a great leader and mentor. During his tenure we expanded our product set, service offerings, geographic presence and our front-end applications and digital print platform set the standard for the industry. I have no doubt that the innovations we have planned will continue to offer the speed, quality and value that our customer’s demand."
Ross Goldstein, a Mimeo board member and managing partner of DFJ Gotham, a leading investor in Mimeo, said, "We thank Adam for all of his contributions to Mimeo as CEO over the last 8 years and are glad he will continue in his role as a member of the Board. We have watched John successfully manage nearly every area of the company over the past few years and we know Mimeo will continue to thrive under John’s leadership."
