North White Plains, NY—As a result of the recent additions of the broncolor and FOBA brands, MAC Group has added four new people to their team.
“We feel incredibly fortunate to add such an experienced team to handle the tremendous opportunity that broncolor and FOBA represent as we look to further solidify their leadership position within studios, enterprises and the world-class photographers that appreciate the value that these brands represent,” said Jan Lederman, president of the Mac Group.
“The strength of our team just keeps growing. The depth of knowledge and relationships our newest team members bring to MAC Group is awesome; they are matched only by their incredible passion and enthusiasm. Our family just keeps getting bigger and better. I couldn’t be more excited.”
Following are the four new appointments.
Cuny was named vice president of Sales and Marketing, broncolor and FOBA. He will lead the team working on the two newest brands at MAC Group. Cuny has worked in the photo industry for 45 years in many different capacities. Among them are retail sales, professional photo lab management, inside and outside sales manager, as well as regional sales manager. What’s more, in his early years, Cuny spent his time photographing concerts in the 1970s and 1980s.
“I have always enjoyed working at MAC Group. Everyone there has the same goal of providing excellent marketing, products and service/support to the photo and video communities,” commented Cuny.
Moreover, Cuny has spent the past 20 years in the digital imaging and lighting industries. He has focused on commercial, and corporate sales as well as teaching lighting techniques to a wide range of audiences. In addition, he enjoys collecting cameras, images and anything photographic, which he showcases via his blog on camera collecting at dancuny.com.
Griffin is now brand manager for broncolor and FOBA. A graduate of Montana State University’s Film and Photography program, Griffin has spent the last 14 years as a working portrait photographer. During that time he also held positions across the entire photo industry—from sales, capture, print and everywhere in between.
Furthermore, Griffin is always looking for the chance to share his love of photography with anyone who will listen. In addition, he was once called “the hardest working person in the photo industry” by his peers.
“I’m happy to join what I consistently hear is the best team in the industry. I am so excited to help continue the growth and success of the broncolor and FOBA brands in the U.S. I cannot wait to share my knowledge as well as expertise with all of our customers,” Griffin said.
As the new technical sales manager for broncolor and FOBA, Westfield returns to MAC Group after his most recent role at Phase One. At Phase One he specialized in their medium-format camera systems.
Moreover, in his previous role at MAC Group, Westfield was the rep for Mamiya Leaf systems. Other roles included his own mobile location digital capture service as well as assisting such renowned photographers as Hiro, Neal Slavin, Oberto Gili, Ricard Avedon and Annie Leibovitz.
“I have a deep passion for photography that began when I was 14 years old. This business has generously given me the opportunity to meet amazing talented artisans and travel around the world extensively. It is my pleasure to continue helping creative photographers find solutions to master their craft. It never grows old,” said Westfield.
