New COO at MAN Roland
The world's second-largest printing press manufacturer has a new COO.
Eric D. Belcher has been promoted from his post as CFO of MAN Roland Inc. to become the company's COO of sheetfed operations. He reports to CEO Yves Rogivue.
Belcher took on the CFO post in 2001, and championed long-term financial planning and capital equipment purchasing strategies through a value-added, consultative approach with printing companies.
Last year he began directing sheetfed operations for the company's Midwest region. In his new role as COO, Belcher will oversee all of MAN Roland's North American sheetfed operations.
"By utilizing independent tools such as the press operating profitability data or NAPL's Profit XL program to supplement investment decisions, graphic arts companies are able to make even better decisions regarding automation, labor costs, waste, debt, throughput, and other critical economic drivers," Belcher says.
In addition to his strategic and finance background, Belcher brings significant sales and marketing experience to his new position, MAN Roland officials say.
Belcher holds an MBA from the University of Chicago's Graduate School of Business, and a bachelor's degree from Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa.
