New Xerox Exec Jeff Jacobson Looks Forward to Listening & Learning at drupa
Jeff Jacobson recently joined Xerox as President, Global Graphic Communications Operations. Jacobson, 52, joins Xerox from Presstek where he served as the company’s president and chief executive officer since 2007, adding the title of chairman in 2009.
These are difficult day for everyone in the graphic arts—many of conventional press vendors have been hit hard. I will be interested to see if Jeff will compare the digital, offset and direct impression worlds in subsequent posts. Presstek generally positioned its presses as serving runs ranging from 500 to 20,000—as a practical matter, Xerox is likely to take a somewhat different view.
Jeff’s new role at Xerox that focuses on worldwide strategy, operations, product development, marketing, sales and support of Xerox’s production systems portfolio and related software and workflow offerings.
In a blog posted today, Jacobson says he’s looking forward to drupa 2012. “I plan on spending as much time as possible with customers, partners and prospects – listening and learning about their business and helping them understand the benefits of digital print in order to grow and prosper.”
