Tom Cavalco, who has served in a variety of roles over the past 15 years, has been promoted to managing director of Mark Andy Europe.
“Tom has been instrumental to our rapid growth in European sales and market share in recent years, and this appointment reflects his deep understanding of our solutions and the markets in which they operate, as well as the close working relationship he has with our customers across the continent,” says Mark Andy CEO Kevin Wilken.
Cavalco, who was a driving force in Mark Andy’s successful relocation of its European headquarters to Warsaw in 2015, will focus on the customer experience from demonstration through installation and service. He will be responsible for leading and growing a talented sales and distribution partner network, and increasing the breadth of products and services to European customers, which has doubled in the past two years despite unfavorable economic and competition dynamics in the European Union, company officials say.
Vice president of international sales Mike Russell will continue to support Cavalco in his new role.
“We are very excited about the prospects for our business under Tom’s leadership, and I know his promotion will be popular with our growing list of customers,” Russell says. “I’m looking forward to supporting the new European organization as we push forward with a range of advanced products and services designed to enhance our customers’ business.”
Narrow-web converters interested in seeing the new European organization in action are invited to attend the upcoming open house in Warsaw on April 5-7. Mark Andy will be demonstrating a full range of its flexo and digital hybrid printing solutions, along with the latest Rotoflex inspection/rewind machines.
