Mount Laurel, NJ (July 12, 2010) – OKI Data Americas, which markets its products under the OKI® Printing Solutions brand today announces that Tim Brien will join the company as Director of Managed Print Service (MPS) Sales. Brien will be responsible for building the U.S. MPS Sales organization and expanding the company’s Total Managed Print™ business. Tasked with leading a dedicated sales organization, Brien will be focused on the execution of both channel and customer-specific MPS sales strategies.
The company's comprehensive MPS program, Total Managed Print, is designed to help their channel partners provide businesses with a variety of ways to reduce the costs associated with printing.

Before assuming this position, Brien was the Vice President of Global OEM programs at PrintFleet since 2003. There he was responsible for building a sales team and creating back-end procedures for the company’s go-to market MPS strategy in the BTA dealer and VAR channels. Successfully implementing sales programs in North America, Australia, Asia and Europe, Brien surpassed every MPS target. Prior to his position at PrintFleet, Brien was an Account Executive at Ricoh Canada, Inc., where he built custom infrastructure solutions while dramatically increasing Ricoh’s customer base.
“MPS continues to be a strong area of focus for us and the addition of Tim Brien aligns with our growth strategy. We look forward to incorporating his ideas and experience into our MPS infrastructure to strengthen and reinforce our commitment to the market,” said Greg Van Acker, Vice President of US Sales for OKI Data Americas. “Brien brings exceptional technical expertise and industry knowledge that surpassed our expectations.
