Todd Hamblin is the new president of Lexmark Canada. And, with that job comes what the market thinks is near impossible task for transition the printer company into a software and solutions provider.
In his new role, Hamblin will be responsible for developing and implementing business strategies to further drive Lexmark Canada towards profitable growth in the enterprise, government and SMB market segments.
Hamblin cames from the former Imaging Services Division of Lexmark where he was the vice president and general manager of worldwide sales and marketing. While in that role, Hamblin developed strategies for brand development and sales.
Hamblin has already outlined his top four priorities as president. They are:
1. Emphasizing managed print services (MPS), a mixture of software tools, services and custom solutions and strategies that provide significant ROI for enterprises.
2. Continuing the company’s evolution into an end-to-end provider of business process solutions.
3. Helping small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) innovate by supplying a compelling alternative between low cost out-of-the-box offerings and highly customized solutions.
4. Strengthening Lexmark’s Canadian customer relationships and maintaining the company’s mission of “Customers for Life.”
Hamblin said Lexmark’s evolution from a printer company to a software and solutions company is unlocking a tremendous amount of opportunity for our customers. From cutting edge software solutions to industry-leading managed print services, our team is uniquely positioned to help our customers reduce costs and increase efficiency — no matter the size of their business.
Hamblin is a veteran of Lexmark having joined the company in 1999 as a marketing manager in ISD worldwide marketing. He has also served as general manager, consumer sales and marketing for ISD in Lexmark’s Europe, Middle East and Africa region as well as its North American theatre.
Prior to his work with Lexmark, Hamblin was a global business development manager at Micron Technology.
