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.”

Seligsohn said, “Ronen is a proven veteran of the printing industry with 25 years of business management experience and a proven track record of success. At HP Indigo, he led a 10-fold growth of the company’s revenues in Asia Pacific and Japan to hundreds of millions during a seven-year tenure, while he was based out of Singapore. Over the past five years, he grew the EMEA business at a double digit CAGR while serving in the company’s European headquarters in Barcelona.”

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.”

Ronen Samuel has spent the previous 18 years serving in various capacities at Hewlett -Packard. Most recently, he served as vice president and general manager of HP Indigo and WebPress EMEA, where he led the region to substantial growth. Previously, he spent seven years leading Asia Pacific and Japan, and brings vast experience in Strategic Marketing where he worked closely with Research and Development to define future products, as well as served in various capacities as product/project manager.

Samuel received an MBA degree from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and received an undergraduate Business and Law degree from The Interdisciplinary Centre in Herzliva, Israel. (GK)
