Standard Finishing Systems Realigns and Expands Management Team
Andover, Massachusetts-based Standard Finishing Systems has announced four key management changes and one new recruit to better align the company for continued growth.
Mark Hunt has been named to the new position of director, Strategic Alliances, working together with the sales team to strengthen and expand relationships with partners, suppliers, channels and key customers. He also will manage key product development and go-to-market projects. Hunt has served in various marketing positions since joining Standard in 1991.
Don Dubuque, another Standard veteran, has assumed full responsibility for the marketing team in his new capacity as senior marketing manager. He will oversee all marketing related activities including outbound communications, lead generation and events. Dubuque joined Standard in 1998 as product manager, and brings a wealth of experience to the job.
Paul Steinke, who has more than 30 years of postpress experience, will shift his focus from regional sales to become a new national account manager, providing individualized sales attention to key accounts. Steinke’s addition to the national account team, alongside existing National Account Manager Bruce Beiderman, will allow the company to effectively serve more accounts.
Dan Desmond also has been promoted to business manager, VIVA Inspection and KAS Mailing Systems. Since joining Standard in 1991, he has held diverse management positions in service, sales and marketing. With his strong technical background, Desmond is now poised to take the lead in these two pivotal product areas.
And new-hire Jack Mathews has joined as business manager, Office Production Systems, to facilitate the sale of the Standard reprographic and entry-level finishing systems portfolio through dealer channels. He served most recently as a sales manager for Baumfolder, and has more than 20 years of graphic arts industry experience.
“These changes come at the right time with the right people, as our company evolves along with the print industry,” said David Reny, executive vice president. “Mark, Don, Paul and Dan have each played a strong professional role shaping Standard’s business, and Jack is a welcome addition. We look forward to this team making high-impact contributions as they assume new responsibilities.”
