    Konica Minolta Reorganizes Field Sales
    NEW YORK As part of its shift from analog to digital products, Konica Minolta has reorganized its field sales organization into three groups, East, Central, and West regions.”As we transform the company to focus on our digital product portfolio, we need a sales organization that is responsive to our customers changing needs,” Sales and Service President Wayne Bell said in a statement.With an average of 20 years’ tenure with Konica Minolta, the new regional sales managers are Craig Underwood (East), Pat Gear (Central) and Jerry Lewis (West).

    Underwood, who has served on the New England Newspaper Operations Association board of directors, joined the company in 1989 as New England district manager and was promoted to district manager for the east. Before joining Konica Minolta he had several sales management positions with graphic arts hardware companies.

    Gear, who trained as an electrical engineer, has a career with Konica Minolta Graphic Imaging that spans 22 years, starting as a field-service engineer. He moved to sales in 1998, covering Oklahoma and North Texas, and was promoted to south district sales manager in 2001. A member of the Mid-America Newspaper Conference, he runs the conference charity golf tournament, which helps provide journalism scholarships at Pittsburg (Kan.) State University.

    Lewis joined the company in 1987 as a sales representative, responsible for the Pacific Northwest. He was promoted to district sales manager responsible for the 10 western states. Recognized several times for outstanding sales management, Lewis earlier was in production management and field-service engineering.
