In 2015, Print Audit was proud to introduce you to The 7 Deadly Sinners of the Office Equipment Industry.  They shared the good, the bad, and the exciting issues facing our channel.  From e-books to comics, the Sinners gave us lots to think about and fresh ideas for growing our dealerships.

But like any strong alliance there comes a time when heroes must meet their match. Introducing The Avengettes, 7 of the most powerful and influential women in our space.  They are:

Violet Vengeance aka Jennie Fisher: SVP/GM Office Equipment Group, GreatAmerica Financial Services Corporation.



Diamond Flame aka Sarah Custer: Director of Services and Solutions, Supplies Network


Shadow Storm aka Tawnya Stone: Director, Enterprise Strategic Technology, GreatAmerica Financial Services Corporation


Iron Girl aka Jenna Stramaglio: Chief Marketing Officer, MWA Intelligence, Inc.


Power Woman aka Melissa D. Whitaker: CEO & Founder, Melissa Whitaker International


Batgal aka Petra Diener: Talent and Communication Specialist / CEO, 3 Across The Sea


Lady Wonder aka Sarah Henderson: Director, MPS Solutions, Clover Imaging Group


Of course The 7 Deadly Sinners are ready for battle once again.  They are:


Wolfboy aka West McDonald: VP of Business Development, Print Audit and Owner, FocusMPS


Stainless Steel Man aka Greg Walters: Owner, Greg Walters, Incorporated


Data Kid aka Ken Stewart: Principal Consultant, Author and Speaker, ChangeForge, LLC


Brainchild aka Brian Stevenson: President, footPRINT Managed Services


The Seer aka Doug Johnson: President, RedSage Group, Inc.


Factman aka Robert Palmer: Research Director, IDC


The Advocate aka Greg Brisco: Regional Manager, Dove Data


You’ll want to sit down and hold on tight as The Avengettes and The 7 Deadly Sinners go head to head on the following questions and many more:

    • Should office equipment dealers explore new business models or double down on traditional MPS?
    • Is the MPS Specialist DOA and who could replace them?
    • If a dealer had to choose between MITS (Managed IT Services) or 3D Printing, which one would it be?
    • Has there been enough “Innovation” in 2015/2016 or is the idea-well running dry?

The war for the modern office has begun.  Are you ready to witness 14 industry leaders as they go head to head on some of the most controversial and important topics facing the imaging industry today? It’s time for you to pick sides and prepare yourself for the next battle and the stakes couldn’t be higher: The future of the office imaging industry.
