    McLean, VA, Friday, November 15, 2013–immixGroup, Inc., which helps technology companies do business with the government, today announced senior management changes to support the continued growth of the company.

    Art Richer, who has served as the company’s President since 2007, has been elevated to the position of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and President, effective December 1, 2013. In his new role as CEO and President, Mr. Richer will assume responsibility for leading the strategic direction of the company as well as daily operations.

I look forward to driving the next phase of our company’s success.”

    An accomplished sales and business development executive with more than 25 years of extensive experience selling IT products and services within the government sector, Mr. Richer has worked with technology manufacturers of all sizes, ranging from very large and established companies to numerous high-growth and emerging technology firms. He has helped technology companies grow their government business through cohesive sales, channel, marketing, and business development strategies.
