Networking, sharing, and strategic partnerships are key factors in building a better business. To help you reach your goals we are now more focused than ever on providing you with the tools you need to solve your toughest business challenges. Watch Francis A. McMahon share how Canon Solutions America’s addition of Eric Hawkinson will make us, and our customers, STRONGER TOGETHER.
A Letter from: Eric Hawkinson, Director of Marketing, Canon Solutions America
Hi! I’m Eric Hawkinson. On April 1, 2013, I joined Canon Solutions America as Director of Marketing. Formerly I served as Executive Director for Dscoop since its inception in 2005, and played a key role in growing the user community to over 7,000 members worldwide.
My passion is building dynamic communities that take the print industry – and the people in the industry – to a whole new level. I strongly believe in the power of networking, sharing, and strategic partnerships. I see new and incredible solutions every day, and encourage people to share and communicate the new and emerging value of print.
That passion, and Canon’s corporate philosophy, Kyosei, blend nicely. Kyosei is a Japanese word that means harmoniously living and working together for the common good. That is the heart of the Canon Solutions America brand, business and sponsorship activities.

With this in mind, my team and I will be focused on partnering with our customers for their success. That means not only providing industry leading solutions and services but the resources, tools and community needed to thrive. We already have a robust foundation to build on – innovative technology, award-winning service, Customer Advisory Councils and the PressGo! business development program. Now we will take it to the next level to help you solve your toughest challenges.
THREE KEY AREAS OF FOCUS:
To do this, we will focus on three key areas that we believe will make our partnership with you even stronger.
Expanded Business Development Efforts
We will expand upon the PressGo! business development program to build a robust learning community designed to provide tools, resources, product information, training and educational forums for information sharing.
We will communicate, demonstrate and team with our customers to assist them in streamlining operations, building new revenue streams, and increasing customer loyalty. We will provide guidance to help our customers with investment decisions around existing and emerging technologies that address key business needs.
Partnering for Success
We will be a committed partner in our customer’s success. From strategy and planning to implementation of complete systems. From reducing downtime and job delays to streamlining operations. From efficiently printing books in run lengths of one to complete finishing of high-volume print runs. From helping retain valued customers to helping find new ones.
