After 17 years of organising inkjet conferences and courses, Mike Willis, managing director of IMI Europe has sold a majority stake in the company to Dr Tim Phillips, formerly of Xennia Technology and Sensient.

“Mike Willis will step down as managing director of IMI Europe from December 31, 2015 and will become chairman with an advisory role in the company, while retaining a minority stake in IMI Europe,” a press release stated.

Mike Willis said, “After many years of running IMI Europe as well as my consultancy company Pivotal Resources, it is time for me to take a less active role in running conferences and have some more time to myself.”

“We intend to continue to grow and develop the company but it is time for someone younger to take over the main activities,” Willis added.

Dr Phillips who will be the new MD too said, “I am very pleased to take on the challenge as I have had the ambition to own and run a company for many years.”

“IMI Europe is an excellent business which I believe will benefit from the new ideas and energy which I bring,” he also added.

“We have already launched one new event, the Inkjet Ink Development Conference in Lausanne, April 2016 and will announce further plans for growth in the future,” Philips observed.

Tom Phillips is also launching Catenary Solutions Limited, a technology marketing consultancy, offering expertise in commercialising technology products.

IMI Europe is the leader in providing strategic and technical overviews of the inkjet printing industry, developing and organising digital printing conferences and courses in Europe and Asia. (AR)
