Heidelberg North America has appointed Chris Brooks as Vice President of Label Products, where he will focus on integrating Gallus into Heidelberg North America and expanding the Gallus product line in Canada and the United States.
Throughout his 24 years of experience in the printing industry, Brooks has spent the entirety of it at the former Heidelberg Web Systems, now manroland/Goss, working in the web offset segment. He started off as a mechanical engineer and worked in various product management and technical sales support roles prior to his last 14 years working in both sales and sales management.
“Heidelberg has always had such a great reputation in the market, and I’m proud to be a part of this team again,” he says. “Being responsible for this new product line is both exciting and challenging, but I’m thrilled to play an integral role in its growth.”
Brooks will report directly to Felix Mueller, President of Heidelberg Americas.
“Chris has the technical knowledge, communication skills, and experience in developing market potential for new technology that provides an outstanding base for this new exciting role,” Mueller says. “With industry-leading label machines from Heidelberg-Gallus, Chris is looking forward to expanding the label market in North America.”
As of April 1, 2018, Gallus fully integrated with the Heidelberg North America team in a move to help increase market coverage and efficiency in sales and service. This transition, the company explains, allows Gallus customers access to the entire product and service portfolios of both companies from a single source.
