Landa Digital Printing has named Marc Schillemans as its new EMEA vice-president of sales and Kobi Ulmer as vice-president of field operations.

Schillemans has a track record for building digital print businesses, and over the past eight years has held a variety of senior management positions at HP, from president of Scitex Vision to his most recent role as EMEA vice-president of sales and market development for HP Indigo and IHPS, HP’s inkjet web business.

Prior to joining HP, Schillemans held senior sales positions with Agfa, Esko, Xeikon and Xerox.

Landa Digital Printing said Schillemans’ digital print experience and proven results-driven approach will bolster its sales ramp-up and market penetration.

Ulmer has been promoted to the position of vice-president of field operations from director of worldwide sales.

In his new role, Ulmer is responsible for overall operational and logistical implementation of Landa’s market strategy, including global customer satisfaction, consumables, facilities and field logistics.

Ulmer continues to be responsible for all non-EMEA sales at Landa Digital Printing.

Benny Landa, Landa Digital Printing chairman and chief executive officer, said: ‘The appointment of Marc Schillemans is of huge importance to our EMEA roll-out. We are pleased to have secured such a high caliber figure, whose reputation and industry experience speak for themselves.

Schillemans said: ‘I am delighted to join the Landa team and to be a part of this exciting journey. I look forward to playing a role in the commercialization of the Landa Nanographic Printing presses and to getting these amazing machines into customer hands.’

Benny Landa added: ‘With Kobi Ulmer’s promotion to vice-president of field operations, we greatly strengthen our senior team and reinforce our ability to deliver market-leading products and services.’
