Retiring CEO, Larry Blue, was instrumental in evolving Bell and Howell into a premier automation service leader.

Arthur Bergens, who joined the company as CFO in early 2014, has successfully led the company’s financial, operational, and M&A strategies which allowed the transformation of the company to its current strategy.
