QuadTech Inc. is forging ahead with a dedicated and reinforced sales network through the appointment of a number of new sales managers in Europe and the US. The sales professionals draw on a breadth of experience and market knowledge to benefit customers and enhance product awareness in their territories.
Caroline Zimmer, Paul Burger, Angelo Mazzacani and Bill Dennis are the most recent appointments to the QuadTech sales force, operating out of France, Germany, Italy and Western USA, respectively. In addition to maintaining the momentum of sales into traditional QuadTech strongholds such as newspaper and commercial web offset print sectors, the new recruits are tasked with growing market share for QuadTech color control and inspection systems designed specifically for packaging production.
Based in Dallas, Texas, Bill Dennis was recently enlisted to the QuadTech team as Western Regional Sales Manager covering Southwestern, Western, and Northwest states of North America, also including Alaska and Hawaii. Dennis has extensive experience in commercial web offset press equipment, packaging production and in-line finishing and die-cutting processes. Most recently he was working for a QuadTech competitor.
Building on his recent experience selling register and ink control systems, closed-loop solutions and inspection systems, Dennis is particularly pleased to be now supplying the "leading-edge products" in so many of these areas. "Most manufacturers have a flagship product or technology but I find it impossible to single out any one product for praise over the others," comments Dennis. "SpectralCam color measurement is certainly a unique and superior product, while our data reporting capability has great appeal to customers. The main challenge for me will be to develop awareness of QuadTech's exceptional offerings in the packaging sector to equal our more traditional markets where we are widely known for delivering on promises."
According to Dennis, regardless of how deeply they have been impacted by the economic recession, all the sectors in his experience currently have one key objective: "Because price increases are tough to pass on to the end user, all markets share a common mission to reduce costs in production processes in order to save on materials and labor. QuadTech is in a strong position here due to the superiority of its technology. It means that we are able to deliver guaranteed and quantifiable long-term benefits that will enable customers to compete even with the tightest margin."
Caroline Zimmer is newly appointed as Regional Sales Manager for France and French-speaking parts of North Africa. Most recently with newsprint manufacturer Norske Skog, Zimmer has experience across a variety of print processes, both in sales and technical support roles. Through her most recent position and extensive service within the thermal paper division at Ricoh, Zimmer has amassed specialized knowledge of paper and paper-based substrates, their behavioral properties and suitability for different applications. Zimmer is now exploiting this know-how in her new role in discussions with companies running newspaper, commercial web and packaging operations that require 100 percent inspection and color control across the widest range of substrates.
