Ramsey, NJ – July 5, 2018 – Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) announced today that Chief Technologist for Workplace Hub, Christian Mastrodonato, has been identified as a Young Influencer for 2018 by The Cannata Report, the leading intelligence resource for business technology and imaging solutions resellers.
