Konica Minolta has appointed Mark Ash as director of its Professional Print and Industrial Print Division in the UK. The company sees this as a key growth area globally, with leading technologies across many markets. 

The appointment was made on 1 September by CEO Rob Ferris, who commented, ‘Mark is extremely experienced in the markets in which we operate and has the qualities that we need to continue growing and transforming our business. He has held senior leadership roles in our industry, both directly with manufacturers and partners, and is an invaluable addition to our UK team. What is equally important, is that we share the same values and sense of purpose, which is critical to ensure that we grow this business area in alignment with the rest of the UK operation.’

Mr Ash began his career in CRD operations, before holding numerous sales and sales management roles. Most recently he held the role of chief sales and marketing officer at Alto Digital, now part of Xerox.

‘I am impressed at how Konica Minolta are challenging the status quo, helping businesses to transform, and rebuilding their organisation to be stronger than ever before,’ Mr Ash said. ‘The professional and industrial print marketplace has a key role to play in the ‘new normal’ as we support businesses to safely change and adapt their working practices to deliver value to their customers.’
