Ivan Cossio and Robert Cole have joined MagnaColours to strengthen the team in two newly created roles.
Mr Cossio has taken the role of business development manager for the Americas, based in California, USA and Mr Cole has taken up the post of commercial director, based at MagnaColours in the UK.
Mr Cossio has been active within the textile screen printing industry for three decades, and so brings a wealth of experience with him to MagnaColours. He spent 12 years at PolyOne and managed their Wilflex sales in Latin America. For the past three years, he was a regional manager for M&R, selling equipment in parts of Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Bangladesh.
He will represent MagnaColours in the Americas and will be key to driving growth and developing further expansion plans in the region.
Mr Cole’s career has seen him work across several industries associated with chemical products, most recently in the digital textile industry in the US. In his new role, he will be responsible for strategic sales management, technical support and marketing activities.
Helen Parry, managing director of MagnaColours, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome both Ivan and Robert, who each bring with them vast yet complimentary experience which will be invaluable in helping drive our business forward and support our expansion plans. With Ivan and Robert on board, we’ll be able to put increased focus on developing our customer base while exploring opportunities in the digital sector.
“For four decades, Magna has been championing the use of water-based screen printing inks, and over the years has led the innovation of products which render the use of chemically harmful inks unnecessary. In joining the team, Ivan and Robert can really contribute to Magna’s goal of encouraging more screen printers to make the switch to water-based inks and promoting the MagnaColours brand.”
The new additions to the MagnaColours team will help to cement the business’ position as a leader and innovator within the industry and support their ambitious growth plans.
