Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) August 23, 2005
Lyra Research, the leader in imaging supplies research and analysis (http://www.lyra.com), announces the appointment of Charles Brewer as managing editor of The Hard Copy Supplies Journal newsletter. A former senior editor of the Journal, Brewer has more than 15 yearsÂ experience as a technology research editor and writer for various book publishers and computer and business publications. He has served as an online consultant for Ziff Davis and Inc. magazine and the research editor for Inc.Âs special publications, including Inc. Technology and Inc. 500.
ÂI look forward to taking the helm at The Hard Copy Supplies Journal and providing our readers with the complete news coverage and key information they need in this complex and rapidly changing market segment. Revenue from imaging supplies is the key to profitability of hardware vendors such as Hewlett-Packard and Lexmark, and it is the lifeblood of remanufacturers such as Clover Technologies and Rhinotek, papermakers such as International Paper and Domtar, and specialty media firms such as 3M and Avery. I enjoy providing the news, analysis, and data that executives at these firms and their competitors use to make key product-development, marketing, and pricing decisions,Â said Brewer.
The Hard Copy Supplies Journal covers toner and ink cartridges; thermal transfer ribbons; and general-purpose, specialty, and cut-sheet media. It provides executives with in-depth analysis of new products and technological advances in the industry, detailed information about new hardware products and their supplies, major industry trade-show coverage, and a complete monthly listing of new marking and media supplies.
In related news, Lyra announces the promotion of Jim Forrest, formerly the managing editor of The Hard Copy Supplies Journal, to the position of senior analyst. In his new position, Forrest will research and write about marking supplies and media. His latest report, published by Lyra Research and Recharger Magazine, Think Ink: The 2005 U.S. Ink Jet Cartridge User Survey, is now available. He is currently working on another report in conjunction with Recharger Magazine.
Jim Forrest and Charles Brewer will deliver a joint presentation at Recharger MagazineÂs World Expo (http://www.rechargermag.com), held August 24Â26 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. Their presentation, entitled Trends in Ink Jet and Laser Printers and Supplies, will take place on Wednesday, August 24, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.
