Los Angeles, CA (Jan. 2010)- Virtual Imaging Products (VIP), Canada’s third largest manufacturer and distributor of imaging supplies, puts the savvy marketing veteran Ron Harris at the helm of its U.S. operations naming him Director of Marketing and New Business Development.
“I first met Mr. Harris four years ago during his tenure as Director of Marketing at Nupro, LLC as he negotiated the distribution contract between our two companies. His communication and marketing skills were abundantly apparent; he was creative, knowledgeable, professional, tough, and fair. Harris spearheaded Nupro’s global expansion establishing market shares in Europe, Mexico as well as North and South America. Ron’s subsequent work at UNINET, ILG and Rainmaker was also very impressive. With such notable industry experience Harris was the first person I thought of when making the tactical decision to expand our business into the U.S.,” says Dan Benezra, President of VIP.
