MacroArt has appointed Dominic Riley as its new non-executive chairman in a move that the wide-format spcecialist says affirms its commitment to further growth and innovation.

Mr Riley’s experience lies outside print but does take in time at FTSE 100-listed RELX, the Morgan Motor Company and the BBC. The new chairman plans to use his experience of innovation, market exploitation and sustainable growth to expand MacroArt’s presence in new sectors and developing markets.

Among his career highlights are launching the website whilst head of marketing at BBC Online and, whilst with the Morgan Motor Company, overseeing record sales and profits and the sale of the business to Investindustrial in 2019.

‘MacroArt is a business with great potential and a huge commitment to excellence,’ Mr Riley said. ‘I am excited by the growth opportunities. The factory is well invested, the team is on board, and I feel sure that we can deliver results, both in terms of market share and profitability. We see significant possibilities for further development at this strongly established firm.’

MacroArt’s managing director Michael Green added, ‘After recent significant investment in both equipment and industry-first software, we believe there is so much more that we can offer our clients, both large and small, and the appointment of Dominic Riley will surely be the catalyst for this next step-up in our offering. Dominic’s impressive experience in successfully driving businesses forward, in both the exploration of new markets and services, and profitability, is perfectly in tune with the ambitions of our firm.’
