Direct Color Systems is pleased to announce the addition of Rui Carvalho as the company's Director of Sales and Business Development EAA (Europe, Asia, and Africa).
Mr. Carvalho brings with him nearly 20 years of experience in the graphic arts industry as a distributor/dealer of different types of digital printing equipment for offset, screen, pad and large-format printing. His thorough knowledge of many major printer manufacturers enables him to offer solutions for a wide variety of printing applications. Blair Allen, Direct Color Systems' President, welcomes Carvalho's familiarity with many fields in the printing industry, as well as his strong knowledge of sales, servicing and support of printing devices. Allen feels strongly that his skill set will not only be valuable to helping DCS grow its business in this area, but will also help to support the new Dealer Partners appointed by DCS. "Rui has successfully marketed our product in Portugal and can use this knowledge to help the new partners get started," states Allen. "We believe he has the experience and skills to grow a team to manage and support DCS's products in the EMEA region."
First on Carvalho's priority list is to establish a network of value-added partners in the regions of Europe, the Middle East and Africa. "The DCS line of direct-to-substrate printers are among the most innovative and reliable products out there," states Carvalho. "I am looking forward to developing new markets and introducing the DCS products to a wider audience."
Rui is based in Porto, Portugal
