IIMAK Announces Promotion of Doug Wagner to Chief Executive Officer

AMHERST (N.Y.) April 6, 2015 – International Imaging Materials, Inc. (IIMAK), is pleased to announce the promotion of Douglas C. Wagner to Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors. He will continue in his current role as President of IIMAK which he assumed in 2012. Doug joined IIMAK in 2007 as Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and has been instrumental in driving the business through global expansion and diversification.

Wagner’s appointment completes the managed executive transition coordinated by the current CEO, Richard A. Marshall. As part of this transition, Marshall will remain actively involved with IIMAK and continue as the Chairman of the Board. Marshall enjoyed a highly successful career at IIMAK spanning twenty-three years, and has now chosen to move a step closer to retirement.

Marshall, Chairman of the Board for IIMAK. “I am excited for Doug and for the future of IIMAK. I am passing the leadership role to Doug with extreme confidence that he will provide the guidance, energy and wisdom to build IIMAK beyond what I have imagined.”

Under Wagner’s leadership, IIMAK completed four acquisitions, penetrating into the inkjet inks market and strengthening IIMAK’s position in Mexico and Central America. He also supported capital investments for improved manufacturing efficiencies and enhanced sustainability.

“Doug has a strong vision for IIMAK’s growth and a keen strategic focus to drive results,” remarked Marshall. “IIMAK employees are a dedicated team and will continue to bring new levels of innovation, customer care and value to our industries.”

Prior to joining IIMAK, Doug spent nine years with Avery Dennison in their Retail Information Services Group (RIS) last holding the position of Vice President of Sales & Marketing for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.
