UK-based MagnaColours, a manufacturer of water-based inks, announces the appointment of a marketing manager and two regional sales managers for its South Asia region. The new hires come as part of the company’s business expansion plan.
John Lynch joins in the role of marketing manager, while Supasorn Jirangda and Ravindu De Silva join MagnaColours as regional sales managers based in Thailand and Sri Lanka, respectively.
Lynch’s appointment was effective as of June 2019. According to the company, he brings 10-plus years of graphic, marketing, and print design experience to his position. He joins MagnaColours from Ideal Sourcing LTD where he was the brand manager, developing and designing product for retail.
Helen Parry, managing director of MagnaColours, says, “Our customers and their clients are often highly creative and having a marketing manager with both the graphic design knowledge and marketing background that John has is a great asset to MagnaColours. John is already starting to work with our global distributors, sales team, and expert print technicians to promote our innovative products and champion our brand to the global market.”
Supasorn Jirangda joins MagnaColours in Thailand having spent two years at Perfectos HK selling heat transfers in the South Asian region. She brings an extensive knowledge of traditional screen printing inks and processes, working previously as an account manager at PolyOne. With more than 10 years of industry experience working in the garment and textiles industry, the company anticipates she will strengthen its sales efforts in the region.
Ravindu De Silva also joins MagnaColours from Perfectos HK, beginning in August. Based in Sri Lanka, De Silva brings 15 years of production industry knowledge to the team. He’s worked to establish and improve print production processes and manufacturing quality at various companies.
Parry says, “We are thrilled to welcome Supasorn and Ravindu to MagnaColours. Having new regional sales managers located in South Asia enables us to increase our focus in these developing markets. It enables us to be able to work closely and forge stronger relationships with manufacturers and printers in the region.”
