Konica Minolta has made several appointments to its senior leadership team; Mark Ash joins as chief revenue officer for the UK Group, Sarah Stone will be new chief people officer, and Andy Clegg is the new chief finance and operations officer.
From 1st April 2021, Mark Ash will assume the role of chief revenue officer for the UK Group, covering all aspects of sales, marketing and service. He will build on the advances made since joining the company in 2020, overseeing the company’s transformation beyond print. This transformation will be built on Konica Minolta’s portfolio of digital workplace products, which includes IT managed services, data analytics and process automation capabilities.
Ash 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 organizations in the UK to realize significant efficiencies and successful adoption of new ways of working.’
In addition, Sarah Stone will take up the new group role of chief people officer. Joining Ash and Stone in the senior leadership team is the new chief finance and operations officer, Andy Clegg.
The senior leadership team is headed by CEO, Rob Ferris, who has led the transformation of the company since joining in May 2020. Ferris commented, ‘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.’
