A research and development officer was tapped by Flint Group to be president of its digital division, Xeikon.
Robert Welford, who had been vice president of R&D at the company, was promoted to president to “lead Xeikon through the next phase of success, reaffirming its deep commitment to bringing the latest innovations in digital printing to customers across the globe,” according to a news release.
Welford joined Belgium-based Xeikon in September 2018, when he took over the management of R&D operations. He oversaw the engineering operations, the ink and toner competence centers, and the print process and project management office. As president, he will continue those duties and others as he accelerates the integration with Flint Group, the company says.
Headquartered in Luxembourg, Flint Group, which is privately owned, bought Xeikon in 2016.
