EskoArtwork (www.esko.com) has strengthened its presence in the sign and display market by appointing Bryan Stringer as Worldwide Business Development Manager Sign & Display.
Stringer will be based in the UK and report to Nicolai Gradman, Senior Vice President CAM & Supply Chain. In this new role, Stringer will be responsible for expanding EskoArtwork’s sign and display business by developing relationships with other vendors in the industry and identifying new business opportunities. Stringer will also support more than 30 EskoArtwork sales offices around the world.
Stringer brings to his new role years of expertise and experience in the sign and display market. In the UK, he founded B&P Light Brigade in 1982 and was Managing Director at the company until 2004. Stringer then set up and ran Planet Media Ltd and Planet Digital, acting as UK distributor for Zünd until 2007, and most recently for SwissQprint.
“The role presents an excellent opportunity for me to apply my experience in the sign and display sector, and help EskoArtwork expand its business,” says Stringer. “The company’s software is already a ‘must have’ for packaging and commercial printers. We anticipate that it will soon enjoy the same status in the sign and display market, driving tools for digital finishing in digital print bureaus. Plus EskoArtwork Kongsberg cutting tables have a very strong reputation for digital finishing in this industry.”
Nicolai Gradman comments: “Bryan has a comprehensive understanding of the sign, display and retail sector. His knowledge, global contacts and vision will prove invaluable as he spearheads our growth strategy in this growing market.”
