This role encompasses the entire Ricoh Production portfolio, including digital cut sheet, wide format, continuous feed and software solutions.
The general manager for sales of Ricoh Australia, David Phillips, said Lane's appointment was further demonstration of the company's intent: "Simon has worked in the digital print industry for more than 15 years, both on the vendor and client side, and has unique insights in to how Ricoh can best support our Production printing customers.
"We're delighted to have him join the business," said Phillips. Mr Phillips said Lane would be accountable for the sales results, while ensuring the Ricoh Production Print business is sustainable over the longer term.
Lane spent 12 years with Fuji Xerox in a variety of senior sales and marketing roles, and prior to that led PMP Limited's book printing start-up, dbooks. He formed a sales and marketing practice in 2015, working with clients in medical, technology, construction and manufacturing industries.
"We are delighted that Simon has joined Ricoh. His skillset and experience of both growth companies and large multinationals will be invaluable as we drive our revenue growth and enhance momentum for Ricoh as a leading player in the production printing market," said Berry.
