Supplies Network Hires Doug Johnson as SVP of Managed Print Services
St. Louis, MO (January 2010) – Supplies Network, a leader in print management, is adding horse-power to its CARBON SiX managed print services (MPS) program with the hiring of Doug Johnson as senior vice president (SVP). Johnson is an expert and early innovator in the MPS space after holding executive positions with RedSage Consulting, Print Inc., and Hewlett-Packard.
“Supplies Network is substantially increasing our investment and commitment in CARBON SiX by securing top talent and expanding program offerings,” said Greg Welchans, president of Supplies Network. “Doug has more industry and real-world MPS experience than anyone. Working with us as a consultant for the past three years, he has been instrumental in developing our award-winning program to help independent dealers serve imaging fleets with a variety of equipment types and brands.”
Prior to being the founder and president of RedSage Consulting, Johnson served as SVP/COO of Print Inc., and president of its subsidiary, PrintValue Solutions. Print Inc. was a start-up in 2001 that pioneered MPS, growing to a $67 million company when it was sold to Pitney Bowes in 2006.
With Hewlett-Packard, Johnson was SVP of world-wide marketing for HP’s Imaging and Printing Systems Group, and vice president and general manager for HP’s Imaging Supplies Division. During his 20 years at HP, his team is credited with the development of innovative and cutting-edge strategies, widely regarded as firsts in the hardcopy supplies industry.
