FFEI has invested in experience, introducing two new experts to its growing UK-based team. The move is to ensure continuous growth following a year of success across several markets including CTP. Newly appointed Software Business Manager, Nick Gilmore and Marketing Communications Manager Denise Murphy, have both joined the company, renowned for driving technology solutions for its partners.
Nick Gilmore, as Software Business Manager, will be driving FFEI’s portfolio of workflow and visualisation tools globally through channel partners. He will also concentrate on delivering custom software projects for new and existing strategic accounts.
“I have a strong and agile team with both deep experience and young blood. Their expertise will help create and fulfil the many opportunities that we have with products such as RealPro Packager,” says Gilmore.
“We will also be harnessing this expertise to look for ways in which our software can benefit customers either as a stand-alone product or by integrating our routines into our partner’s solutions.”
Gilmore has had extensive experience in sales, marketing and business development roles within a variety of leading organisations. Initiating his career at Crosfield Electronics, he subsequently worked at Quantel, Turning Point Technologies, Colorbus, and most recently Kodak.
In parallel to Gilmore’s background, Murphy’s experience spans over a decade of marketing prepress and print solutions including workflow software, output engines and inks for multi-nationals such as Agfa Geveart Ltd and Sun Chemicals.
“FFEI is one of the industry’s best kept secrets because much of its technology is encapsulated in the products of its worldwide partners,” states Murphy.
“Being technology drivers for such a diverse range of leading brands such as FUJIFILM, Nilpeter, Technova, and Leica Microsystems presents a challenge in communicating brand value to the end user. This brand value is key for our future go-to-market strategy, especially for our software products.”
