Jim Cerkleski is Executive Chairman of the Board for Clover Imaging Group, the industry leader in providing high-quality, environmentally friendly imaging products. Cerkleski is responsible for providing strategic vision and leadership for the company as well as overseeing sales, business development and strategic alliance initiatives.
The prototypical entrepreneur, Cerkleski has been instrumental in the record growth of three multi-million-dollar businesses – all of which began at or near zero revenue. Shortly after graduating from Northern Illinois University, Cerkleski founded Superior Office Products, which surpassed $15 million in sales within its first five years of operation.
He subsequently sold Superior Office Products to US Office Products and became a divisional President. Soon after, Cerkleski launched Superior Wireless to focus on the growing wireless market. In 2000, he purchased 60% of Clover’s stock. Since taking the helm, Cerkleski has led the company from a local imaging supplies remanufacturer to the global leader in aftermarket imaging supplies and recycling services.
In 2006, Cerkleski was awarded Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year for Manufacturing and Distribution for the Lake Michigan Area. He holds a Bachelor’s in Marketing from Northern Illinois University.
