The move follows Eddy Fadel taking the position of Global Commercial General Manager - where he will oversee global sales, services, marketing and product management - after three successful years serving as EMEA General Manager.

“I am very happy to welcome Richard to the Esko family,” said Eddy Fadel. “We will certainly benefit from his broad experience in Danaher’s Product Identification Division. His experience at X-Rite Pantone leading innovation in color management and his commercial leadership in Videojet’s packaging and print business will be a great asset, both for Esko and for our customers.

“Since our integration of AVT inspection systems and our strengthened connections to X-Rite’s R&D and commercial teams, the Esko portfolio has extended beyond prepress and is rapidly becoming the packaging backbone for our customers,” he said. “With his breadth and depth in both packaging technology and business, I am convinced Richard is the right leader to help our commercial team in EMEA support our customers in their digital transformations.”

Richard has worked in the Danaher Product Identification platform for almost a decade, most recently leading X-Rite’s R&D and Product Management having joined as Vice President in 2017. In his new role, Richard will be responsible for the management of the commercial, support and financial performance of the Esko business across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, operating from the company’s offices in Gent, Belgium.

“This is a hugely exciting time for the business,” said Richard. “I am delighted to now take on the role of General Manager, building on Eddy’s work in successfully bringing teams closer together to better serve our customers. Following the market uncertainty and volatility that we have all experienced, our business has a clear focus on delivering innovations that support our customers along their digital transformation journey.

“I am proud to now be leading the team and look forward to working with them to achieve our common goal of helping our customers around the world overcome the many challenges they face today, and will face tomorrow,” he said.
