Global Graphics Software has appointed Peter Kushnieruk as manager of OEM sales for the Americas, furthering the company’s expansion across the region.

Mr Kushnieruk has over 30 years of experience in print technology, gained at companies like Agfa, Fuji and Kodak. At such companies he gained experience in direct, channel and OEM sales, as well as in vertical markets where print and the products to create it were the main technology. He then branched out to EFI, X-Rite/Pantone, JYBE and Valli Information Systems, where he gained knowledge and experience of enabling technologies for print applications and other manufacturing processes. 

Mr Kushnieruk joins worldwide OEM sales director Paul Hagen to strengthen the company’s US-based team as part of Global Graphics Software’s expansion plans for North and Latin America.

Mr Kushnieruk commented, ‘I look forward to expanding the reach that Global Graphics’ has in the Americas for its award-winning technologies. I have always been committed to helping the customer first and aligning resources to provide the best possible service and support. I am looking forward to building a positive impact on turnover and the company’s bottom line as we expand our business in the Americas.’

Jeremy Spencer, Global Graphics Software’s vice president of business development, and who Mr Kushnieruk reports to, added, ‘Innovation inside our technology portfolio with Harlequin Direct, SmartDFE and PrintFlat has driven Global Graphics Software to expand our team in the US. We are delighted to bring Peter on board. His experience with complementary technologies along with his industry knowledge will be invaluable to our growth plans.’
