Cambridge (UK), 26 February 2014: Global Graphics SE (NYSE-Euronext: GLOG), a leading developer of software platforms used to create digital printing and digital document solutions, has appointed Justin Bailey as VP of sales.
Mr Bailey has over 25 years’ experience in the document imaging and print markets, having worked in both direct and partner sales channels.
He spent 17 years working for Canon in the UK during which time he worked in the sales team that pioneered the early sales of colour laser systems into the graphic arts, pay for print and office markets. From an early stage at Canon Mr Bailey realised that selling software solutions had the potential to increase profitability. One of the solutions with which he had greatest success was the document scanning application, eCopy.
Mr Bailey soon became eCopy’s first non-US employee, founding their EMEA business which grew to represent approximately 30% of the company revenue. During this time Mr Bailey was involved in broadening the reach of eCopy's technology platforms so that most leading brands of multi-function office printers (MFPs) had eCopy solutions to sell via their channel. He also was instrumental in growing the eCopy partner ecosystem, extending the reach of the eCopy solution by integrating it with a broad portfolio of content management systems and other enterprise applications.
In 2009 eCopy was acquired by Nuance and Mr Bailey’s sales team responsibilities were extended to include the Equitrac, Safecom, and Copitrak imaging systems for MFPs, as well as desktop applications for OCR (optical character recognition) and PDF, and the Omnipage Development platform.
He joins Global Graphics’ senior management team and reports to Gary Fry, Global Graphics’ CEO.
Commenting on the new appointment, Gary Fry said, “Justin’s track record speaks for itself. He has joined us at a time when the alignment of our products and strategy is showing increasing success. Adding Justin’s talent will contribute significantly to us growing our business together.”
