Malinowski succeeds Hullar at Rosetta Technologies

Robert Hullar, a co-founder and CEO of Rosetta Technologies Corporation, retires April 30. Paul Malinowski, a Rosetta executive who worked closely with Rob for 28 years, succeeds Hullar as president and CEO. Rosetta Technologies is a global leader inmagnetic ink character recognition and payment solutions.

Rosetta Technologies is Ricoh’s exclusive MICR partner. This means Rosetta customers enjoy the specialized capabilities of MICR technology experts combined with the resources of the leader in global IT output solutions.

"Rob and the board reached out when Rob decided to retire asking if I’d be willing to take on the CEO role. Our MICR partnership with Ricoh is growing globally. We’re serving more customers around the world than ever before. We’re helping them tailor their MICR check printing operations for their country’s banking systems. Growth and creative opportunities like these make this an especially exciting time for everyone at Rosetta,” Malinowski said. Malinowski joined Rosetta in 1994 as Quality Advisor. After becoming more involved in the business, he was promoted to VP of operations. In 2006, along with operations, he took on sales, marketing and business development. He led the sales team working closely with Ricoh partners and helped the company steadily gain industry recognition. Beginning in 2009 as executive vice president, he directed Rosetta’s manufacturing, warehouse operations, inventory management and customer service operations. He continued as secretary on the Rosetta board of directors while retiring from day-to-day operations in 2022. Before joining Rosetta, Lt. Col. Malinowski served in the U.S. Army for 23 years in various command and staff positions.

Rob Hullar and two partners founded Rosetta Technologies in 1987. In addition to establishing MICR relationships with some of the world's largest printer manufacturers including Kyocera, IBM, HP, Tally-Genicom, Hitachi and Ricoh, Hullar led the company in pioneering technology for new MICR applications. Prior to establishing Rosetta, Hullar was director of marketing for MegaCom Inc., a developer of printer control systems and other related technologies. He joined that company just after its inception and built the engineering department before overseeing the marketing department. Earlier Hullar worked as a systems analyst in Gainesville, Florida, and taught computer science at a local college. Hullar attended Allegheny College, Miami University and Santa Fe Community College. He majored in chemistry and computer science.

"Under Rob's leadership as president and CEO, the company achieved tremendous growth and is widely recognized as a leader in the MICR industry," Malinowski said.
