Aleyant has named Trent Foreman as its new chief operating officer. In this role, Trent will be responsible for all business functions and day-to-day operations at the company, including strategic and operations management, tracking and continuous improvement of business metrics and working with the team to continue to attract top talent as needed.
Trent has been with the company since January 2018, when he joined as product manager for PrintJobManager. Since then, he gained responsibility over all product management in April 2019, and has been director of products and services since April of this year.
“Trent has been an important member of our team since joining the company,” said Tony Garcia, group leader, Volaris C&M, and interim CEO of Aleyant. “He has deep knowledge of Aleyant’s product line and the needs of the commercial printing community and has contributed to our overall business strategy and performance in many ways. I have full confidence he will continue to add value to the company in this new role.”
Prior to joining Aleyant, Trent spent three years as director of print services & sales at an Arkansas-based full-service commercial print and promotional company, transitioning the organization from a corporate in-house printing operation to an independent commercial printer, where he was also an Aleyant customer. From 2007 to 2015, he was employed by Ricoh USA, where he held various sales roles supporting the print production group.
“I am very excited to be taking on this new role,” Trent said. “I believe my years of hands-on experience in commercial print as well as the deep interactions I had with a variety of printing companies during my time at Ricoh has given me excellent insight into the needs of these companies. That has served me well in directing product development at Aleyant, and I look forward to taking that to the next level as COO of this agile and innovative company, together with the outstanding team that has made the company such a success to date.”
Trent will be taking on responsibility for a number of partner and internal projects that are already underway at the company, as well as defining the strategic direction for Aleyant moving forward.
