The Board of Directors of Duplo USA Corporation (Santa Ana, California) has appointed Rick Salinas as the company’s new President and Chief Executive Officer. Salinas will succeed Peter Tu, who’ll be stepping down from the president’s position. Having been with Duplo almost 40 years, Tu will continue to serve as the organization’s Executive Chairman of the Board. “Duplo USA has been expanding its digital document finishing to include print embellishment and on-demand packaging finishing, and we have many exciting new products which we’ll be introducing this year,” Tu said. “Rick’s dedication and tremendous passion to advance the company is truly what our management has been looking for in the new leader of Duplo USA. And we believe under Rick’s guidance, Duplo USA will overcome any challenge and will be more successful into the future.”

Salinas has over 30 years of printing industry experience and joined Duplo USA in 2005 as a Direct Sales Manager for the Chicago, Illinois area. Over the next 17 years his responsibilities increased and he became the Regional Sales Director for Central United States. In 2018 he assumed the role of Vice President of Marketing with his primary focus on product development and shifting Duplo USA’s finishing business from mainly commercial print to on-demand packaging and print embellishment. Prior to joining Duplo USA, Salinas worked in just about all facets of the industry, including overseeing more than 70 employees as the plant manager of one of the nation’s largest in-plant printers

“I’m humbled and honoured to be asked to guide Duplo USA into its next chapter,” Salinas added. “For over 40 years, Duplo has been successful due to its ability to foresee trends and develop strategies early on. We’ll continue this focus and adapt quickly with new innovations in both product and business offerings. I’m very fortunate to work with an amazing management group which understands these challenges and has already laid the groundwork. I also feel blessed by the amazing team we have at Duplo who works tirelessly to support our dealers, partners and end users. I’m excited to see what the future will bring and my promise is that whatever needs or challenges arise, we’ll have done our best to foresee them and have plans in place to fulfill and overcome them.”
