MONTVALE, N.J., May 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC), and Affinity Business Communications, publisher of ENX Magazine and ENX The Week In Imaging, announce that Bob Madaio, Vice President, Marketing (SIICA); Greg Gumpright, Director of Service and Support (SEC); and John Sheehan, Senior Vice President of Channel Sales (SEC) have been selected as 2020 Difference Makers.
Profiles on Madaio, Sheehan, and Gumpright, as well as 54 other honorees will be included in the May/June issue of ENX Magazine. Each year, ENX Magazine calls for Difference Maker nominations and the magazine's staff sifts through upwards of 100 candidates to identify those who exhibit the qualities and intangibles that truly define the spirit of a Difference Maker.
"This unprecedented period in our collective history underscores the value a difference maker can offer to our society," said Susan Neimes, managing editor of ENX Magazine and ENX The Week In Imaging. "The same can be said about business. These are the men and women who deliver on the promise of our professional values and who we strive to be. Without them, our companies would not be able to flourish. These 55 individuals reflect our better selves and the core objective to serve customers, team members and valued stakeholders. We salute and thank them for their efforts!"
As a relative newcomer to the technology industry, Bob Madaio brought a fresh perspective and diverse background to SIICA. Bob focuses on collaboration efforts with team members and his experience gives him a true pulse on the IT industry. He works closely with technical experts, technical leaders and sales teams across Sharp.
Greg Gumpright has more than 32 years of experience in the office equipment industry. He joined Sharp in 2018 and quickly started revitalizing some of Sharp's service programs, reinventing the critical Master Technician Competition and Platinum Service Programs for Sharp's dealers.
John Sheehan leads Sharp's document channel and professional AV B2B regional dealer sales teams, government account sales teams and channel service solutions training teams. He is focused on helping the business evolve to serve the integrated smart office, which is fast becoming a priority in modern workplaces.
Mike Marusic, president and CEO, (SIIC), added of the Difference Makers, "We're honored to have three executives represent Sharp as ENX Magazine difference makers. Bob, Greg and John have had a profound impact on the success and growth of the company and we're proud to consider them part of the Sharp family."
Erik Cagle, editorial director of ENX Magazine, said of the honorees, "It is fascinating to see the paths traveled by our Difference Makers. Regardless of where they began, each person found a home in the imaging technology universe and carved out his/her own niche. They are the foundations for success, and their attitude, drive and work ethic are worthy of emulation."
