Mail-Well Restructures Into Two Segments
ENGLEWOOD, CO—Mail-Well Inc. recently completed a company-wide reorganization. The printing conglomerate is now organized into two business segments: commercial (serving the needs of direct customers) and resale (serving wholesalers and value-added resellers).
“This organizational change will make it easier for our customers to do business with Mail-Well and to access the broad portfolio of products and services we offer,” explains Paul Reilly, chairman, president and CEO of Mail-Well. “During the past few years, we’ve restructured the company and improved our operating leverage. This change focuses on our customers and I’m confident it will drive sales growth.”
This reorganization is part of the company’s “Total Customer Solutions” strategy, by which Mail-Well can offer its clients “one-stop-shopping” for a full spectrum of visual communications products and services—from design through fulfillment, including e-services, direct mail and digital printing capabilities. Sales and service teams are now focused on vertical market segments that include travel and leisure, health services, financial services and technology to deliver customized solutions.
Griffiths Heads Commercial Segment
