Jim Cerkleski is Chairman for Clover Holdings, the industry leader in providing sustainable environmental solutions and high-quality imaging products. Jim is responsible for providing strategic vision and leadership for the company, as well as overseeing sales, business development and strategic alliance initiatives.
Jim 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, Jim 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, Jim launched Superior Wireless to focus on the growing wireless market.
In 2000, he purchased 60% of Clover’s stock. Since taking the helm, Jim has led the company from a local imaging supplies remanufacturer to the global leader in aftermarket imaging supplies and recycling services. In 2006, Jim was awarded Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year for Manufacturing and Distribution for the Lake Michigan Area.
