X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in colour science and technology, and Pantone LLC, and provider of professional colour language standards and digital solutions, has announced the appointment of Ondrej Kruk to the role of president. A proven Danaher executive, Kruk brings a combination of commercial and operational experience to Pantone and X-Rite.

Kruk will lead the continued expansion of Pantone and X-Rite’s product and solution portfolio beyond colour to material appearance.

For the last three years, Kruk has been the general manager of Alltec, a Danaher business offering laser marking and engraving technology under the Alltec and FOBA brands. At Alltec, Kruk defined and executed on a multi-industry growth strategy. Kruk has also held numerous management roles at Videojet, a global leader in coding, marking, and variable data printing solutions. He was instrumental in growing Videojet’s secondary packaging and product decoration businesses into mature global ventures.

Kruk earned his MBA from Harvard Business School and graduated from the University of Economics in Prague with a Master’s Degree in Economics. He has lived, studied, and worked in several European countries, Latin America and the US. He is fluent in Czech, English, German, and Spanish.

Kruk said, “I am extremely excited about the opportunity to lead a company with such a legacy of innovation in creating tools and technologies for colour selection, communication, formulation, and measurement. Pantone and X-Rite’s latest developments go beyond colour, enabling customers to advance the creation, communication and delivery of colour and appearance as they transition to digital processes and use more complex materials. Our ability to solve important customer problems, today and in the future, positions Pantone and X-Rite for long-term growth.”

Joakim Weidemanis, executive vice president, Danaher said, “Ondrej is a proven Danaher leader with experience growing technology companies and working with global customers. I am delighted to see him in this new role at Pantone and X-Rite, where he can leverage the Danaher Business System to open up new growth opportunities in this already strong business of colour technology and appearance.” (GK)
