Guy Avidan has been appointed to the role of president of Kornit’s newly formed business line focused on accelerating the digital transformation of the textile industry to on-demand sustainable production.
The inflection point in the textile industry and the massive shift to e-commerce continues to accelerate the need to digitally transform the supply chain and adopt on-demand sustainable textile production. The newly formed business line will focus on enabling brands, retailers, and marketplaces to realize the benefits of digitization by connecting to the most suitable on-demand production and logistics operations, while ensuring consistency, quality and brand integrity.
Ronen Samuel, Kornit’s CEO, said: “Interest in adopting our cloud workflow platform and network for on-demand sustainable production is extremely strong. We believe there is a huge opportunity here for Kornit to build a significant incremental business and leverage the success of the Custom Gateway acquisition, which serves as the foundation for this strategic initiative. I am confident that Guy will lead this strategic initiative to great success and would like to thank him for his contribution to Kornit’s success in his years of service as our CFO.”
Alon Rozner has also been appointed as Kornit’s next chief financial officer.
In his latest role, Mr Rozner served as the CFO of Orbotech, a leading global supplier of yield-enhancing and process-enabling solutions for the electronics manufacturing industry.
He said: “I am excited to join Kornit as it continues to transform the textile industry and scale profitably. Kornit is extremely well positioned to capture the massive opportunity and I look forward to working with the team to achieve our goals and create value for all our stakeholders.”
