Yesterday, Epson America announced that it has appointed Mark Mathews – former president and CEO of Toshiba America Business Solutions (TABS) – as vice president of Epson North American commercial marketing. In the new position, Mathews will be responsible for product and marketing strategies for Epson’s projector, point-of-sale, business-inkjet printer, and robotics divisions. He will also head Epson’s Canada-based technical support and development team that’s focused on point-of-sale solutions.
Mathews brings more than 25 years of marketing, sales, and operations experience in the technology industry. Leveraging his experience in B2B technology, Mathews is charged with enhancing Epson’s commercial reseller program and strengthening the company’s strategic direction for commercial business solutions.

Before joining Epson, Mathews served as president of Airwolf 3D, where he created and expanded a successful multi-tiered distribution model, both in the United States and internationally. He also created new revenue streams through the development of new products and services. As noted, previously, Mathews was president and CEO of Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc., where he led all sales, marketing, service, operations, dealer training programs, and corporate functions in the document imaging and professional services market.
“I believe that Epson’s technology innovation, coupled with its reputation as a trusted partner, make Epson one of the most reputable brands in the commercial imaging industry today,” said Mathews. “I’m thrilled to be a part of an organization that not only develops solutions that answer customers’ needs, but helps put businesses in a position to expand and exceed their business goals now and in the future.”
