Printer Ink Maker Lexmark Announces Board Changes
Ink cartridges maker Lexmark has welcomed two new members to its board of directors.
The toner cartridges manufacturer has appointed Paul Rooke as chairman of the board and Sandra L Helton as a new director.
Mr Rooke will succeed Paul J Curlander, who has 20 years' service with Lexmark.
Ms Helton has experience in the telecoms industry; for eight years she was executive vice president and chief financial officer of Telephone and Data Systems.
"We are delighted that Ms. Helton is joining the Lexmark Board of Directors," said Jean-Paul L Montupet, presiding director of Lexmark.
"Her experience in managing and counselling global businesses will greatly benefit Lexmark."
The firm recently teamed up with AccuWeather to release a weather forecast tool for its printers. Lexmark is targeting the tool – which offers location-based seven-day forecasts – at small and medium-sized businesses whom it believes will benefit from such a product.
It can be used with Lexmark's web-connected all-in-one printers.
