ColorGATE has added another well-known industry expert to its management team, with Roger Albert joining the company as VP of global sales and business development.
Mr Albert brings more than 30 years of industry experience to the role. His professional career includes positions with Stork, Océ, Canon, Kornit Digital and GMG Color. He will report directly to ColorGATE’s founder and CEO Thomas Kirschner and oversee all of ColorGATE’s sales activities relating to the direct, indirect and OEM channels. Mr Albert’s primary objective will be building a well-structured global sales organisation with a strong customer focus that will be able to handle ColorGATE’s future growth and new product offerings.
He said: “All of my previous roles had a connection to ColorGATE’s field of activity. I have been working in conventional and digital textile printing, sign and display, commercial and packaging printing. RIP and colour management technology has always been the vital thread for my customers’ success. I am looking forward to applying my knowledge, to optimizing the potential of the Sales team and to helping even more customers and prospects to find the ColorGATE solution that is right for them.”
Mr Kirschner added: “ColorGATE keeps growing in both commercial and industrial printing applications, and we are planning to add more products and services to our portfolio. This requires a flexible, scalable, diversified sales team, and I am very happy to have Roger on board who will help us to put a world-class organisation together.”
