Rocky Hill, CT USA – Direct Color Systems is pleased to announce the addition of Jon Stone in the newly created position of Dealer Sales Manager, North America.
Jon brings with him nearly 20 years of experience in the building and managing of strategic global sales channels. His thorough knowledge of building equipment sales networks enables him to offer solutions and build relationships across numerous DCS markets.
“We are excited to bring Jon on board,” says Dave Pitzen, Director of Sales, US and Canada for Direct Color Systems. “As DCS embarks on another phase of growth, Jon immediately becomes a valuable part of our strategic direction. Not only will Jon be at the forefront of expanding our reach domestically, but he will work with me to ensure current dealers are equipped with tools needed to succeed.”
