Kornit Digital Ltd., a provider of digital printing solutions for the global printed textile industry, has appointed Ronen Samuel as the new chief executive officer, effective August 1, 2018. Ronen, an industry veteran at HP Indigo, will succeed Gabi Seligsohn, who will remain with Kornit through a brief transition, serving as one of the Board of Directors.

Yuval Cohen, Kornit’s chairman of the Board said, “Ronen is joining Kornit at a perfect time. With his proven record of managing and growing a large organisation, I am confident he will capitalise on the foundation already built at Kornit and lead the company to new heights, fulfilling our vision to lead the transformation of the textile printing industry in the digital age.”

Samuel added, “I am honoured and excited for the opportunity to lead Kornit Digital and expand on the impressive record of success it has achieved thus far. I was attracted to Kornit based upon its record of innovation and its depth of talent across the company. With the benefit of a printing technology background, I have an appreciation for the market dynamics which drive success of new technology.”
