Lapinski Takes CEO Helm at MAN Roland
WESTMONT, IL—Perhaps the biggest personnel news to surface at Graph Expo came out of the MAN Roland camp, where Vince Lapinski was named CEO effective January 1. He replaces Yves Rogivue, who has steered the company’s North American operations for the past six years.
Lapinski, a 16-year veteran of MAN Roland, has served in numerous capacities. The RIT graduate headed the company’s newspaper sales group and was part of the management team that reorganized the operations by consolidating the entire web division and reallocating manufacturing resources to better support the company’s customers.
Lapinski was promoted in 2001 to lead the entire web operation as COO and was named a member of the board.
During MAN’s press conference at Graph Expo, Rogivue said he would make his plans public sometime in November.
