Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd has appointed Jon Hiscock as its new Head of Production & Industrial Print, continuing the journey of enabling its customers and partners to innovate, adapt and thrive.
Capitalising on Konica Minolta’s reputation for quality, technology and service, in the production and industrial print sector, Jon will lead the company’s specialist teams in creating opportunities to add value to its customers, partners and the organisations they serve.
Jon brings 24 years’ experience in the print industry to the new role. Starting out in print sales followed by various roles in the industry before joining Konica Minolta in 2012 as a Production Print Specialist, progressing to Regional Sales Manager and National Channel Manager for production print.
Building on the strong foundations laid by Mark Ash, who was appointed Chief Revenue Officer earlier this year, Jon will ensure Konica Minolta is at the forefront of the renaissance that is taking place in print. He comments, “Organisations are returning to print in order to break through the dense digital noise, and engage with their customers in a trusted, meaningful and tangible way. It is our job to support them both directly and indirectly, with solutions that are sustainable, affordable, innovative and exciting.”
One such exciting opportunity is the ability to integrate printed communications with complementary technologies, notably augmented reality (AR). Jon adds, “Combining the power of print with the interactivity of AR has the potential to truly transform how customers experience and interact with the communications they receive, amplifying the engagement with content, and improving how the customer reacts and responds.”
“Mark Ash commented, “Jon’s experience, at every level of the production and industrial print sector, is an invaluable resource for us, our customers and partners. Be it, leveraging the opportunities our technologies offer the commercial print market or to organisations that will benefit from including high impact, sustainable print as part of a centralised communication strategy complimenting their digital transformation.”
