Kornit Digital Ltd., a company that develops and designs digital printing solutions for the global printed textile industry, today announced it has appointed Stephen Nigro as a strategic advisor to the company and Board of Directors.

The company plans to subsequently nominate Nigro for election to the Board at Kornit’s August Annual Shareholder Meeting.

Nigro is an industry veteran who has spent over 37 years at HP working in a variety of capacities, most recently as President of 3D Printing, overseeing the global build out and execution of that business segment. Prior to that, he was Senior Vice President of Imaging and Printing, leading all of HP’s printing businesses including HP Inkjet, HP LaserJet and HP Graphics. His other senior leadership positions at HP include Senior Vice President of Inkjet and Graphics business, Senior Vice President of Retail and Web Solutions, Senior Vice President of Graphics and Imaging, and Senior Vice President of Technology Platforms.

“In keeping with Kornit’s objectives, Stephen too, has witnessed, led and supported transformations from analogue to digital printing.  His appointment further strengthens our team and enhances the collective knowledge we are able to leverage from our diverse set of executives, advisors and Board members,” Kornit Digital CEO Ronen Samuel says.

“Kornit possesses the technology and resources to drive the transition to digital, and it is evident that the Company is positioned to disrupt the end markets it serves. That transition parallels digital transitions that I have seen throughout my career. My previous experience will therefore help to drive the execution of Kornit’s growth plans,” Nigro adds.
