James Thomas has joined Xeikon as a UK sales manager for the company’s digital label presses.
Thomas joins from Focus Label Machinery where, as business development and marketing manager, he managed the company’s sales, agents and international business partners.
On his appointment, Thomas said: ‘The chance to join Xeikon was too good an opportunity to turn down. It was especially enticing when listening to where it sees itself 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, Thomas 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 and trade development manager. He began his printing industry career with HMSO at Somerset House in London.
Hans Gerinckx, vice president of sales and channels worldwide at Xeikon, said: ‘Thomas brings with him a wealth of sales experience, industry knowledge, and understanding of the market. He will be a great asset.’
