Hybrid Software Group has announced that it has appointed Steven Steenhaut as director of marketing. In the role, Steenhaut will coordinate group marketing activities across the company’s six business units, building a unified effort and market presence. He will be based in HYBRID Software’s office in Gent, Belgium.

Steenhaut has spent most of his career in sales and marketing, primarily in high-tech and IT companies —particularly software — spanning a number of global regions. Beginning his career in sales allowed him to apply that experience into marketing to fully support the sales effort. He has experience in start-ups as well as more institutionalized companies. All of this comes within an international context with the ability to manage and coordinate several remote teams.

While Steenhaut comes to the Hybrid Software Group from Igepa Belux, where he was marketing and e-commerce manager, he spent most of his career at Nuance, makers of speech recognition, AI, PDF, and OCR software. There he ultimately managed the Global Marketing Demand Center, guiding and supporting local marketing teams across the globe. Steenhaut began his career as a copier salesman for Océ-copiers, quickly developing experience in the marketing departments of Panasonic and Fujitsu-Siemens. He earned a master’s degree in applied economics (University of Ghent) and an MBA from the Management School of Antwerp.

“Hybrid Software Group has undergone considerable growth during the past few years. We are comprised of six business units whose technologies complement each other, but we must act as one company to our customers. While we have contributed to the success of many print providers, we also provide vital OEM technologies to many vendors who use our products and expertise to create digital front ends as well as fast and powerful digital presses,” stated Mike Rottenborn, Hybrid Software Group CEO.
