Global Graphics appoints VP of Sales
Global Graphics SE (NYSE-Euronext:
GLOG), a leading developer of software platforms used to create digital
printing and digital document solutions, has appointed Justin Bailey as
VP of sales.
Mr Bailey has over 25 years’
experience in the document imaging and print markets, having worked in
both direct and partner sales channels.
He spent 17 years working
for Canon in the UK during which time he worked in the sales team that
pioneered the early sales of colour laser systems into the graphic arts,
pay for print and office markets. From an early stage at Canon Mr Bailey
realised that selling software solutions had the potential to increase
profitability. One of the solutions with which he had greatest success
was the document scanning application, eCopy.
Mr Bailey soon became eCopy’s
first non-US employee, founding their EMEA business which grew to represent
approximately 30% of the company revenue. During this time Mr Bailey was
involved in broadening the reach of eCopy's technology platforms so that
most leading brands of multi-function office printers (MFPs) had eCopy
solutions to sell via their channel. He also was instrumental in growing
the eCopy partner ecosystem, extending the reach of the eCopy solution
by integrating it with a broad portfolio of content management systems
and other enterprise applications.
In 2009 eCopy was acquired
by Nuance and Mr Bailey’s sales team responsibilities were extended to
include the Equitrac, Safecom, and Copitrak imaging systems for MFPs, as
well as desktop applications for OCR (optical character recognition) and
PDF, and the Omnipage Development platform.
He joins Global Graphics’
senior management team and reports to Gary Fry, Global Graphics’ CEO.
Commenting on the new appointment,
Gary Fry said, “Justin’s track record speaks for itself. He has
joined us at a time when the alignment of our products and strategy is
showing increasing success. Adding Justin’s talent will contribute significantly
to us growing our business together.”
