While OKI has enlisted former Canon and Danwood luminary Bill Allan to front its sales effort, Epson has recruited from outside the printer channel with the appointment of former Western Digital honcho Tim Anderson.
Epson has also announced the promotion of Kerry Reid to the new role of head of marketing, director designate.
Anderson, who was previously EMEA branded sales director at hard drive vendor Western Digital, said of his new role at Epson: “It is an exciting time of growth and change for Epson and there is huge potential to increase our channel sales both in consumer and business offerings.”
Allan joins OKI directly from Danwood Group, where he was commercial sales director for Scotland. He replaces Martin Ebbage.
Allan said: “The experience I will bring to OKI, especially in the growing A3 and graphics market, will complement skills already established within OKI with the aim of taking the company to a number one position within the next three years.”
