Memjet has appointed Scott Leger as its new vice president of business development.

Mr Leger has been brought in to manage interest in the San Diego-based company’s DuraLink technology, as well as overseeing engagement and development processes for OEM partners. He previously spent 22 years at Fujifilm Dimatix, managing functions that that included engineering, manufacturing, marketing and technical support.

‘When Memjet announced its DuraLink technology, I knew I wanted to be a part of it,’ said Mr Leger. ‘DuraLink’s features got my attention; the highest image quality on the market, quick printhead replacement times, robust modular component designs and longer printhead life make it a compelling solution.

‘As my knowledge of the company grew, my enthusiasm moved beyond just the technology. Memjet is built on a solid foundation, yet still maintains the agility of a startup capturing new opportunities. The combination of technology, innovation and passion for success positions Memjet to be a worldwide leader in inkjet solutions. I am pleased to be part of the team that can help make that happen.’

Eric Owen, general manager at Memjet, added: ‘Scott’s industry knowledge, combined with his rich history of developing and integrating inkjet applications, makes him the right person to expand these relationships and develop solutions that make Memjet, its OEM partners and end-user customers successful. We welcome him to Memjet.’
