Phil Oakley has moved from HP to join Kornit Digital as UK and Ireland sales manager.
Oakley - who was most recently UK and Ireland regional business manager for large-format printing at HP - said of his decision: "My new position at Kornit is a great opportunity for the next stage in my career. I have always tried to keep a start-up mentality and that will come into play at Kornit. A 'can do', dynamic attitude helps customers grow - and that mentality has already helped Kornit build a very well-established customer base."
Kornit’s direct-to-garment printing solutions range from commercial to mass production systems. Its direct-to-fabric (roll-to-roll) textile printing technology uses one ink set on all types of fabric with no additional finishing processes required.
"Across the whole industry - textile, graphics and commercial printing - major players are adopting Web-to-print and personalisation, and of course sustainability is a massive driver for change," added Oakley. "It's where future growth in digital textile printing is happening and I'm excited to be part of it at Kornit."
