Ricoh Announces Oranization Changes (Vision 08)

Well, it took awhile since the departure of Tom Salierno as CEO, however Ricoh has appointed a new CEO. I believe this is the fourth CEO change (Jim Ivy, Tom Salierno, Nori Goto) for Ricoh Americas Corp in the last 66 months. Doesn't seem like there is a lot of job security in this position. Congrats to Martin and we wish him well and good fortune from the Print4Pay Hotel membership!

Ricoh Americas Announces Organization Changes

West Caldwell-based Ricoh Americas Corp. announced today that Martin Brodigan will assume the position of president and chief executive officer of Ricoh U.S., a division of Ricoh Americas, effective immediately. Brodigan has been serving as executive vice president and chief financial officer of Ricoh Americas, a subsidiary of Ricoh Co. Ltd., a Japanese supplier of office automation equipment and electronics. Brodigan replaces Nori Goto, who will be returning to Japan to assume a new position with Ricoh Co. Ltd., according to the company.

As president and CEO of Ricoh U.S. (Brodigan had served as CEO of Ricoh Canada and CFO of Ricoh Americas Corp), Brodigan will oversee The Ricoh Dealer Division, Ricoh Business Solutions, Technology Services, Production Printing Business Group, People Excellence, Business Development, Customer Administration, and Supply Chain Management and Performance Excellence, the company says.

The company also announced today that Dennis Dispenziere has been appointed senior vice president and CFO of Ricoh U.S. Dispenziere most recently was the project leader for implementing the Oracle System at Ricoh.
