Fujifilm Dimatix has appointed the company’s president, Steve Billow, to the chief executive officer position with effect from 1 April 2023, following the announcement of Martin Schoeppler’s retirement.

Mr Billow joined Fujifilm Dimatix as president in October 2022, bringing expertise in inkjet technology and strong experience driving technology-based programmes from concept through to commercialisation.

Mr Schoeppler joined Fujifilm Dimatix in 2004, became CEO and president in May 2008, and following his retirement as CEO, will remain a senior advisor to the company.

‘During Martin’s nearly 20 years with the company, including a remarkable 15 years as CEO, Fujifilm Dimatix grew into one of the world’s foremost industrial printhead powerhouses. The collaborative spirit with which Martin led the company’s growth and customer success will continue,’ commented Mr Billow.

‘Steve has already stood out as a leader at Fujifilm Dimatix with his rich industry experience and technology background, as well as being a former printhead customer,’ said Mr Schoeppler. ‘The company will continue to excel under Steve’s leadership, and I wish him the very best in his expanded role.’
