Hackensack, NJ (March 2010) - Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI), the premier provider of product intelligence for the imaging industry, announced that it has hired industry veteran Jonathan Bees as its new Director of Strategic Marketing Products. Mr. Bees brings almost 30 years of experience working in the imaging industry as a marketing manager, industry analyst, and editor.
In the new position, Mr. Bees will help expand the range of offerings in the MPS and production spaces and regularly provide content for the company’s publications and Web site. He will also be responsible for growing BLI’s pre-launch marketing services and consulting business, and provide custom competitive analysis.
“I’ve always had a great deal of respect for Buyers Laboratory and I am very pleased to have been appointed Director, Strategic Marketing Products,” said Mr. Bees. “I look forward to joining the management team.”
Mr. Bees worked as a product manager at Konica from 1992 to 1995, and as manager of competitive intelligence from 1995 to 1997. From 1997 to 2005 he was the editor-in-chief of Better Buys for Business, a leading publisher of analysis and advice for buyers of office equipment. Mr. Bees was the director of InfoTrends’ Digital Peripherals Solutions (DPS) consulting service from 2005 to 2008, and more recently was the president of Imaging Strategies, a consulting and market research company serving the imaging industry.
Michael Danziger, BLI’s CEO shared, “We’re excited to add someone of Jon’s caliber to BLI. Changes in the industry are greatly expanding our clients’ need for information on new products, like Solutions and Production, as well as new approaches to the marketplace, like MPS and vertical market focuses. At the same time, they are being asked to pursue these challenges with fewer internal resources. Having Jon on board will allow us to meet the needs of our clients in a manner that is both timely and of high quality.”
