Lexmark unveils fresh UK boss

A promotion to the US headquarters of its current UK country manager has given Lexmark the chance to bring in another experienced executive to run this region

Lexmark has unveiled a fresh face to run its UK operation after the previous incumbent was offered a position in the US HQ in the same week it made a couple of acquisitions to bolster its retail and rich media capabilities.

Danny Molhoek has been appointed to the position of UK and Ireland country general manager coming into the role after a spell running Central and Eastern Europe, Turkey and Russia and Israel for the printer specialist.

He also has experience of country management running the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg and replaces Gary Bourland, who is heading to Lexington to take up a position in the US HQ.

Molhoek faces the job of expanding the organisation in the UK and Ireland and he said that it had made recent acquisitions that would help it provide resellers with more options to present to customers.

Keeping the momentum going on the acquisition front, the firm has picked up video, audio and image software firm Twistage and retail solutions player AccessVia to help those users wanting to exploit various media options and to improve the print on-demand functionality in retail stores.

"Since 2010, Lexmark has completed eight acquisitions, further advancing the company's transition from being hardware-focused to being a leading end-to-end solutions provider," said Paul Rooke, Lexmark's chairman and CEO.
