Inx International Ink has promoted each of Brian Petzel, Renee Schouten and Heather Seville to the position of vice president. The trio have a combined 75 years experience with Inx, which is the third largest producer of inks in North America and a self described industry leader in metal decorating inks and colour management technologies.

Mr Petzel is now the vice president of financial planning and analysis. He has been with Inx for more than 31 years, with the company describing him as the ‘backbone’ of its finance department. ‘During my initial interview with Inx, I felt they really cared about their employees and were like family,’ he recalled. ‘No one event or project stands out during my time here, but instead it is about the people whom I have interacted with throughout the years. Whether it is our North American personnel, our European partners or our neighbors down south in Brazil, it has been a joy working with all of them.’

Meanwhile Ms Schouten joined Inx 21 years ago and has spent the majority of her time expanding the marketing department. She is now the vice president of marketing.’I started at Inx as an intern in college,’ she said. ‘At that time, I never dreamed I would have the opportunity to build a long-lasting career here. I’ve been fortunate to work with and learn from a strong leadership team that values the careers of their employees. It is especially rewarding to work collectively with my colleagues to deliver innovative, safe and sustainable product solutions around the world. I’m very excited to continue contributing to the growth and success of this company.’

Finally, Ms Saville first joined the company 22 years ago and is considered ‘the heart of the HR department.’ The new vice president of HR commented, ‘Inx was my first full-time job, and I was lucky to land at a company with such a strong tradition of promoting from within. I started as a temporary worker doing data entry in the Payroll department. Over the years I’ve been given the opportunity to build my career.’
