Fujifilm North America, a division of the global supplier of drop-on-demand inkjet printheads for industrial applications, announces the return of Steve Bennett to the company’s graphic systems division in the role of vice president of packaging solutions. Bennett will be charged with leading efforts to drive growth within that segment.
He was previously with Fujifilm for 20 years in a variety of roles, including sales, product marketing and development, corporate communications, wide-format solutions and electronic imaging.
Most recently, Bennett was VP of sales, North America, for Esko-Graphics, a producer of pre-press software and hardware, and a division of Belgium-based Esko, a finishing equipment maker and developer of workflow software. At Esko-Graphics, Bennett was responsible for top-line sales for all of the company’s solutions. (Esko is a strategic partner of Fujifilm and its products will continue to be an integral part of Fujifilm’s packaging strategy, the company says.)
“I am very pleased Steve has chosen to return to Fujifilm,” says Todd Zimmerman, division president of Fujifilm North America Corp.’s graphic systems division. “With over 35 years of industry experience, his background encompasses both analog and digital print technologies, and, his knowledge of the packaging segment makes him uniquely qualified to define future product solutions. Steve will optimize our go-to market product and service strategy, and achieve our growth goals in the packaging segment, one of the critical growth areas for Fujifilm.”
