James joins the leading digital press manufacturer from Focus Label Machinery where as Business Development & Marketing Manager he managed the company’s sales, agents and international business partners.
Commenting on his new position, James said: “The chance to join Xeikon was too good an opportunity to turn down. It was especially enticing when listening to where they see themselves both in the current market and in the future, with new products that are being developed. These are exciting times to be working with Xeikon, Flint Group, and the digital print sector.”
Prior to Focus Label Machinery James had worked in a number of sales roles in the industry – most notably with manroland in the UK and Ferag, where he was National Sales & Trade Development Manager. He began his printing industry career with HMSO at Somerset House in London.
