Canon names new head of commercial printing
PrintWeek reports that Canon’s Stuart Rising has been promoted to the role of head of commercial printing, replacing the recently departed Craig Nethercott.
Joining from Canon UK’s 3D division, which he launched in 2014, Rising started the new job two weeks ago, having previously worked in a variety of roles within Océ and then Canon Océ following its acquisition.
Nethercott relocated to Australia at the beginning of this month to become managing director of Océ Oceania, ahead of Canon Australia moving production printing products sales under the Océ brand.
Rising said: “I am really excited about the role. I think the bit that really differentiates us as an organisation is the way we go to market. I’ve got a team of consultants and the way we take that depth of knowledge in a very uniformed and structured way really adds value.
“I’m very much looking forward to continuing this approach and working with a team that has significant knowledge and experience.”
Rising said he had spent his first fortnight travelling around the UK and meeting clients, along with attending the Canon Commercial Production Printing Business Days event in Poing, Germany. Responsible for around 20 staff, he will be reporting to Canon’s director of industrial and production solutions Duncan Smith.
“The commercial printing team continue to go from strength to strength and Stuart will help build on their success,” said Smith.
