Canadian John Rogers becomes the new Global Executive Director of the Digital Solutions Cooperative for users of HP technology, better known as Dscoop, while Gary Peeling becomes the organization’s new Global Chairman.
Rogers is regarded as one of Canada’s digital-printing pioneers through a career spanning more than 30 years. Rogers began his career at Moore Business Forms, before working with Dave Rogers to start one of Canada’s first digital colour printing companies, called Dots & Pixels Inc., in 1994.
Dots & Pixels was an early adopter of variable data printing and Web-to-print solutions. Rogers was also one of the founders of Dscoop. In his new role, he will provide strategic leadership to the Dscoop boards of directors and management teams in North America, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific and Japan. His responsibilities will include oversight of the organization’s strategy, financials, operations and marketing around the globe.
“I am so excited to be working with an organization I love at a time when it is celebrating its tenth anniversary,” said Rogers. “There is nothing I would rather be doing at this point in my career than working with the visionary individuals and companies involved in Dscoop who are together shaping the future of the industry. We have a great future together, and I am thrilled to be a part of it.”
Gary Peeling, Dscoop’s new Global Chairman, is Managing Director at Precision Printing Company Ltd. in the UK, which he has been helping to lead for the past 25 years. Precision Printing works with consumer brands in the photo, greeting card and self-publishing space, while also leveraging litho printing.
“I am pleased to take on this new role in collaboration with John. John is a well-qualified leader who will help us shape the future of our cooperative,” said Gary Peeling. “He has a unique set of experiences that make him the perfect person for the role of Global Executive Director at this point in time.”
