Xeikon America has named Kent Wolford as its new labels sales director in North America.

He comes to Xeikon with over 25 years of experience within the label and packaging  industry where he has held multiple senior level positions in sales, operations, and marketing. This has included at Webtron, Presstek, Mark Andy, HP Indigo, EFI Jetrion, Nilpeter, Domino and Durst, as well as previous roles with the Xeikon organisation in the region in recent years.

Mr Wolford’s prior experience within the print industry, including key appointments in notable associations, has helped him develop a deep understanding and knowledge of the industry, according to Xeikon, which further noted his experience with conventional narrow web flexo presses, a broad background with digital labels and packaging, plus a history of high performance sales make him an, ‘excellent addition to the Xeikon team.’

Hans Gerinckx, global vice president of sales, labels and packaging, Flint Group Digital and Xeikon, said, ‘Kent brings us a strong background of sales leadership and his experience within the label and packaging industry, a key reason Xeikon chose him, is going to be a great asset as he guides our sales team to deliver digital printing solutions to the market.’
