Konica Minolta Launches Professional Print Division Headed by Charles Lissenburg
Langenhagen, Germany, 26 June 2017
Konica Minolta has launched a Professional Print Division in Europe that has Charles Lissenburg in a new role of General Manager. He will be at the helm of the teams that will focus on providing products and solutions leading to business efficiency and value improvement for commercial and industrial printing customers.
This new division has been created to reflect the growing importance of the industrial and commercial printing sectors as Konica Minolta becomes more customer focused and moves more into marketing, software and cross-media services to take print applications on to a new level.
Lissenburg has moved from Nuance Communications where he was Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales, Imaging for three years. Prior to that, he was with EFI for 14 years where he was latterly Vice President, Worldwide OEM Sales.
Over the past few years, Konica Minolta has made huge moves into industrial markets with the launch of its AccurioJet KM-1 UV inkjet sheetfed press and bizhub PRESS C71cf on-demand label printer as well as other important developments in packaging and professional printing sectors.
Konica Minolta has a stated aim of replicating its success in the mid-production colour printing sector to gain leadership in the industrial printing market. Key industrial applications such as label and packaging are the focus of Konica Minolta’s research, as evidenced by its development of new printing technology and partnerships with companies such as MGI Digital Technology.
