Hybrid Software has promoted Mike Agness to Executive Vice President for the Americas, responsible for all sales and operations in North and South America.

Agness will operationally replace Mike Rottenborn, who was recently named CEO of Global Graphics Software, based in Cambridge, U.K., effective January 1, 2020. Agness joined Hybrid Software in 2011 after a long career at Pitman Company and Agfa Corp. and currently holds the position of VP Sales for North America.

“Mike brings a unique blend of technical and sales expertise to Hybrid Software, leading our continued push in the packaging market. His experience and knowledge of our products and customer base make him an excellent candidate to assume operational responsibility for Hybrid Software in the Americas,” says Guido Van der Schueren, Chairman of Hybrid Software.

Three other Hybrid Software employees have also received recent promotions and will report directly to Agness. Carlos Arizpe joined Hybrid three years ago after a career with Eastman Kodak and Grupo Sanchez in Mexico. He is now the Sales Director for Latin America. David Bolduc, previously Senior Solutions Engineer, has been promoted to Project Manager, responsible for implementing all customer solutions. In addition, Derek Hurst has been promoted to Customer Service Manager for Hybrid’s customers in Canada and the U.S.

To assist with the transition, Rottenborn will remain a member of the worldwide management team of Hybrid Software.
