Kristin (Warner) Young joins LINK DSG as “Director of Global Services”

Occasionally, I get the opportunity to post an article (and Press Release) about someone I know. I met Kristin, several years ago, when she was with MBC Precision Imaging. At the time, MBC Precision was owned by two of my oldest industry friends, Bill Berg, who I met in 1970, and Bob Abrams, who I had the pleasure of working with, back in the mid 1980’s, when we were both with Rowley-Scher Reprographics. After MBC Precision Imaging was purchased by ARC (2007) and was merged with ARC’s previously purchased businesses in the DC/Baltimore area (RTI, Ridgway’s and Leet-Melbrook), Kristin stayed on with MBC for a while, but, not long after, moved over to NRI’s team. Over the years, Kristin has proven to be a solid performer. I’m positive that everyone who knows her will join me in wishing her every success in her new position with LINK DSG.

As per her profile on LinkedIn, Kristin’s prior positions were:

Enterprise Solutions at National Reprographics Inc. (NRI)

Global Solutions Executive at American Reprographics Company (ARC)

Vice President of Sales at MBC Precision Imaging (MBC)

Sales Executive at Reprographics Product Group (RPG)

Until I looked at her profile on LinkedIn, I did not know that Kristin had previously been a member of RPG’s team. (Or, if I did previously know that, my mind is slipping a bit). I mention RPG because RPG is a company I founded. While I was at Rowley-Scher Reprographics back in the early 1980’s, we decided to “add” an equipment/supplies/service business to Rowley-Scher’s business, and we named that business (which was a “division” of Rowley-Scher) “Reprographics Product Group – RPG”. Not long after we sold Rowley-Scher, the RPG division was “spun-off” and was sold to the Kadanoff’s, who still own and operate RPG. Kristin joined RPG when it was owned by the Kadanoff’s.

Here’s the Press Release I received about Kristin’s new position with LINK DSG:
