Tony Wiley becomes President of Esko North America succeeding Mark Quinlan, who is leaving the company. He is to oversee all of Esko’s sales and support in both Canada and the United States and will report directly to Christian Korte, Esko CCO.
Esko divides its North American structure into Eastern, Central and Western regions in the United States, as well as a group in Canada. Each regional team includes account managers for packaging, wide format and commercial printing, who are then supported by application specialists and sales support assistants.
In conjunction with this organizational change, Esko is forming an autonomous business organization in Latin America, driven by Esko Vice President, Latin America, Ernande Ramos, who will also report to Korte.
Steve Bennett replaces Wiley as Vice President, US Central Region Sales. Bennett recently held the role of Vice President, Digital Finishing Business, and had been Vice President, New Business Development.
Wiley joined Esko in 1999 and led the company’s North American Customer Service organization for 10 years. He most recently served as Vice President, US Central Region Sales, for the past five years.
“North America is a very important, growing global region for Esko, with many customers who are pioneers in our industry,” stated Korte. “We continue to focus on and invest resources to this area – the selection of a strong leader was critical for us. With his proven success in both service and sales, Tony has an extensive knowledge of Esko products and our customers’ needs.”
