Headquartered in Minneapolis, Meyers was established in 1949 with a single piece of printing equipment. Under the guidance of founder Gerry Dillon and two generations of the Dillon family, Meyers has grown to more than $60 million in revenue and currently operates a 250,000-square-foot facility featuring advanced commercial printing presses.
Lane joined Meyers in 2016 as president of Meyers’ Retail Marketing Solutions Division. Prior to joining Meyers, Lane served as CEO of Lofton Label, a label, flexible packaging and labeling equipment company in Inver Grove Heights, MN. Lane was also with Cargill, Inc. for 27 years, most recently as VP of sales and marketing for the Salt Division and senior chair of the Cargill Foods corporate marketing initiative. Lane also served on the board of directors for TLMI for three years and remains active in industry leadership.
“Mike’s experience at a very senior level in one of the world’s largest privately held companies, along with his discipline and experience building effective sales, marketing, and production operations made him an ideal choice to fill the position of CEO,” said David Dillon. “We are confident Mike will continue to lead and position Meyers for future success, while paving the way for the next generation of the Dillon family to grow into more senior leadership positions within the organization.”
Meyers works with brands and retailers across the US in a wide variety of industries, including category leaders like Aveda, Ulta, Target, Starbucks, Hormel, Verizon and more.
“Meyers has maintained a leadership position in custom labels and retail marketing and merchandising by listening to what our customers – some of America’s leading consumer brands – want and need and responding with one-of-a-kind solutions,” said Lane. “As CEO of Meyers, I am confident we will continue to build on this legacy and that our commitment to excellence and collaboration will produce possibilities for our customers and employees for years to come.”
