The Netherlands-based Color Concepts, an independent profiling and testing lab that serves the digital wide-format printing industry, announces Thomas Degenfeld as its new strategic partnership manager for hard- and software manufacturers.
Degenfield has more than 25 years of experience in the digital printing industry in which he worked 11 years for ONYX Graphics. He established a distribution channel in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region and has built OEM partnerships with various printer manufacturers. In recent years he worked for Vink Austria, a Mimaki and ONYX reseller, as a key account manager for industrial applications. He developed extensive knowledge about printing applications, color management, software workflows, and integrations. The company recently won an ONYX Award for the best ONYX Thrive workflow specialist in Europe.
Marco Roos, CEO of Color Concepts, and Degenfeld have worked closely before, during Degenfeld’s years at ONYX. He worked with the Color Concepts’ team on trainings for resellers and printer manufacturers.
“I am happy to welcome Thomas to our growing international team,” says Roos. “Color Concepts is expanding its efforts in serving our partners with the best support and digital services. Thomas is an experienced relationship manager, with the experience and expertise we need as a team. He has supported and believed in Color Concepts’ vision from the very beginning.”
In his new role, Degenfeld will focus on building, creating and managing new business opportunities with hardware and software manufacturers. He will serve partners worldwide and will be based in Vienna.
