What’s on the minds of EO Johnson business leaders in 2017?

Posted at 10:09 AM

After the confetti settles and the festivities come to a close, New Year’s traditionally serves as the time for goal setting. Besides the usual personal goals people forecast (working out and eating a lot of greens, being organized, etc.) professional goals are also revitalized, often brining in a fresh perspective for the year.

This is also the case for EO Johnson Business Technologies. With the company’s 60th anniversary coming up, all look to continue the customer driven culture while also forging ahead with new opportunities in 2017. Here to give their perspective on their 2017 focuses and goals are two senior level EO Johnson Business Technologies leaders:

Mary Jo Johnson, CEO/Owner:

2017 is going to be a very unique year at EO Johnson Business Technologies.  Our company turns 60 years old, and equally important, we have a key leadership transition – Dave Green will continue developing as our new President/COO while long-term leader Roger King transitions from this role into his new role as Past President working on special projects. 

In addition I am excited to see how our business will continue to grow and meet customer needs, especially with print and document management, document scanning, IT services and security, production printing, and office print. Data security will be a big play this year and business process optimization will give us some strong opportunities. 

Inside our walls I am interested in developing our employees and providing opportunities for growth.  Our employees continue to be our greatest asset – what they do is very important to our business, our customers, vendors, and our communities.  Communication is critical to building strong relationships, and will be a focus for us. 

Dave Johnson, Division President – Imaging:

I am very optimistic about 2017!!  Alignment among our businesses has been our strategy this past year, and my plans are to continue working seamlessly together to provide the best service to our customers. We will continue to help, respect, motivate and grow together in 2017 and focus on our Core Values.

Regardless of competition, if we stay focused on these things we will continue to be successful and provide a great place for our employees to work. Leadership is about "Making a difference" especially in the lives of others. We must continue to make a difference and continue to align ourselves together as a team. 

The start of the New Year helps to inspire thoughts of innovation and creativity for the business year. With EO Johnson’s history of innovation, these are just a few of the individuals who represent the lasting legacy of EO Johnson.
