Konica Minolta has appointed former EFI executive Frank Mallozzi as president, Industrial and Production Print (IPP).

Mallozzi previously worked at EFI for 25 years, including eight years as chief revenue officer from 2015 to 2023, and as senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing from 2005 to 2015.

In his new position, Mallozzi will lead Konica Minolta’s industrial print channel, which includes the company’s high-speed inkjet, labelling, and embellishment businesses.

“We are thrilled to welcome Frank to our executive team, and confident this important area of our business will continue to evolve under his leadership,” said Sam Errigo, president and CEO, Konica Minolta.

“Our industrial and production print business is a key strength for our US sales organisation. Frank’s extensive experience developing go-to-market growth strategies and integrating solutions to accelerate profitability will keep us on a path of innovation and allow us to gain market share and strengthen our position in the marketplace.”

Mallozzi said it was an honour to join the Konica Minolta team.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Konica Minolta in different capacities throughout my career, and it is an Honor to join the company and be leading this best-in-class team,” said Mallozzi.

“This powerhouse brand already has such a strong foothold in the market, and I look forward to contributing and lending insight to develop new and innovative strategies to move us even further ahead.”

Mallozzi currently sits on the boards of two industry related organisations: the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation, advocating on behalf of the printing industry to drive younger professionals to this great industry of print, and CalPoly University-Graphic Art’s School.

He recently founded the Center Reach Group, a consultancy focused on helping companies design and develop go-to-market growth strategies, execute on strategic plans and optimise marketing efficiencies for direct sales and channel optimisation while increasing sales productivity.

Last week, Konica Minolta Australia general manager, production and industrial print, Andy Cocker, announced his division had set a new record in hardware sales for the 2023/24 financial year.

The achievement was announced during the Konica Minolta FY24 Kick Off event this week which was timed to coincide with the beginning of the new Japanese financial year on 1 April.
