Australian distributor of printable materials and consumables, Ball & Doggett, has strengthened its team with a few leadership changes.
As of 1 October, its former general manager of display and visual Leigh Hooper will take up the role of labels and packaging general manager.
The continuing growth in this market in terms of volume and technology is seen as a focal point for the business. Committed to the development of sustainable packaging alternatives is a key platform for Ball & Doggett,” the company said.
“Hooper is looking to continue the push with products covering the industrial, food service, carton board, plastic, flexible packaging sectors as well as the roll label market, all of which Ball & Doggett have substantial market presence.”
Replacing Hooper’s role, as general manager of display and visual, is national manager of digital media Rob Brussolo.
Brussolo will head up the company’s display and visual sector, which looks after all wide format products including roll, rigid materials, and hardware accessories.
“With the acquisition of Access Paper a few years ago now, Brussolo is looking forward to continued organic growth,” Ball & Doggett said.
“The signage market continues to evolve with greater emphasis on technology and the expectation to have a complete range of printable materials in stock and delivered on time is fundamental to our success.”
In addition, Paul Bartolo has been promoted to the role of national manager of digital media (small format).
Bartolo has a long history in the small format digital papers business, having led the sales team in NSW for the past five years.
“The digital print market continues to forge ahead with next technologies emerging from our OEM partners. The market continues to grow with greater focus on application-based solutions,” the company said.
“Bartolo is keen to continue to build of money saving customer solutions such as i_consignment and the Aspire Rewards program. Both these solutions are driving real dollar savings for our customers.”
