The Reynolds and Reynolds Company has announced that Ron Lamb has been named president of Reynolds and Reynolds. Lamb succeeds Rob Nalley, who was named Vice-Chairman of Reynolds. Both changes are effective immediately. Lamb will report directly to Reynolds Chairman and CEO Bob Brockman. Previously, Lamb held the position at Reynolds of senior vice president, Sales.
In making the announcement, Brockman said, “Throughout my career, I have always taken a measured approach to putting leaders in place to gain the experience and training necessary to be equipped to run the organization in the future, for the next generation, so to speak. Reynolds is a large and complex organization – and we compete in a unique, complex business. This is one more step in that deliberate process.”
Lamb has been with Reynolds and Reynolds for nearly 20 years in a variety of sales and marketing leadership positions. Additionally, he has served as general manager of the company’s Web Solutions business. He was named vice president of Sales in 2005; senior vice president of Sales in 2008.
“I’ve gotten to know and appreciate Ron’s abilities as we’ve worked together closely over the last several years,” Brockman said. “He’s well versed in the industry and thoroughly understands Reynolds’ customers and the opportunities we have for success in the future.”
Although Reynolds is a privately held company and does not report its business results publicly, Brockman did add that the company’s 2010 showing was “stronger this year and it appears the automotive industry has stabilized from two years of recession, and dealerships largely are operating more effectively and profitably. All of which bodes well for Reynolds.”
