Dominic Quennell Transfers Duplo's Global Marketing Baton To Ryuji Nagase

Wednesday, June 14, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Dominic Quennell will step down from his position as VP of Global Marketing at Duplo Corporation at the end of June, following five years in the Japan-based role. Ryuji Nagase, who joined the marketing team three years ago, assumes responsibility for most of the marketing functions and in particular interfacing with Duplo's printer vendor partners, which include Canon, HP Indigo, Kodak NexPress, Océ and Xerox. Dominic Quennell transferred to Japan in 2001 after sixteen years running international operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Duplo International. While he is relinquishing his executive role at Duplo Corporation (Japan) to return to the UK, Dominic remains a non-executive director of Duplo International, Duplo's distribution arm in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. During his tenure in Japan, Dominic's team over-hauled Duplo's booklet-making range, launched a series of in-line and near-line solutions, invented an entirely new product segment of slitting, cutting and scoring machines, designed a brand new concept suction folder and, most recently, showed Duplo's new high-end perfect binder at Ipex. Tokio Sakamoto, President of Duplo Corporation comments: “I am particularly proud of Dominic's team's ground-breaking work with the UP3i and JDF standards, which have placed Duplo and its partners in a uniquely strong position to tackle the workflow challenges of this digital print era. Our close partnerships with leading printer vendors will enable Duplo to continue to meet the challenges of the digital era, while our strong collator sales show that we are continuing to support customers in the offset market.” He concludes, “In the time that Dominic Quennell has been part of the team here in Japan we have seen our graphic arts sales increase by 84% and we have expanded our product range for both offset and digital customers. We feel confident that we have laid the foundations for a range of systems that will add value to our customers' businesses for the foreseeable future. We acknowledge Dominic's tremendous contribution and wish him all the best for the future.”
