Roland DGA Corp., Irvine, Calif., announced that it has appointed Amado Lara as its new president.

Andrew Oransky, formerly Roland DGA’s president and CEO, will continue to serve as CEO, providing strategic input while serving on the board of directors of its parent company, Hamamatsu, Japan-based Roland DG Corporation.

Oransky, who has served as president of Roland DGA since 2016 and president and CEO since 2019, points out that the need for a new president became clear after he was named to Roland DG’s board of directors in March of 2022.

“My appointment to the Roland DG board requires me to assume responsibility for overall sales and marketing within the global Roland DG organization, with a focus on crafting strategies and making decisions that will help the entire Roland DG global enterprise grow,” says Oransky. “Roland DGA requires full-time active management. I can’t think of anyone better suited than Amado to lead Roland DGA on a day-to-day basis and ensure we achieve our future milestones. There is no one I trust more to carry the company’s mission and vision forward.”


Lara, a sign and graphics industry veteran with more than 30 years of experience, has held various management and executive positions at Roland DGA since joining the company in 1992, serving most recently as Roland’s vice president of sales.

“I am thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to serve as president of this truly incredible company,” Lara says. “I hope to build upon the tremendous work that Andrew has done as president over the last six years and help lead Roland DGA to the next level.”
