RR Donnelley unifies services under one brand
RR Donnelley & Sons Co. has unified its printing and related services offerings under the single RR Donnelley brand. Moore Wallace, Moore Canada, Moore Response Marketing, Moore (in Latin America), OfficeTiger and the company's network of North American commercial printing facilities have been re-branded as RR Donnelley.
The renaming reflects RR Donnelley's ability to provide fully integrated single-source services. Associated with this re-branding is a non-cash pre-tax charge of about $315 million reflecting the write-down of the Moore Wallace, Moore Canada and other trade names' intangible assets.
"Customers draw on RR Donnelley for an unmatched set of capabilities that enable them to enjoy the cost savings and efficiencies associated with end-to-end solutions," said Thomas J. Quinlan III, RR Donnelley's president/CEO. "This re-branding reflects our ability to help our customers achieve strategic advantage by accessing RR Donnelley's global resources."
The company also announced that Daniel L. Knotts has been named group president of RR Donnelley, with responsibility for global sales, manufacturing, logistics, financial services and business process outsourcing operations.
Mr. Knotts has been the chief operating officer of RR Donnelley's Global Print Solutions Group since 2006. He joined RR Donnelley in 1986 and has served in a series of senior sales, manufacturing, accounting, financial and general management roles at RR Donnelley, including as group executive vice president of the company's publishing and retail services operations.
