Other positions filled in finance, marketing, and operations 

Ann Arbor, Michigan - Xitron, the leading independent developer of RIP and workflow products for the printing industry, has announced the hiring of flexographic expert Patrick Ruebensaal. An industry veteran with over 20 years of experience in prepress workflow, Patrick holds certifications from Agfa, Esko, Kodak, FujiFilm, and Xitron, as well as flexography certifications from Clemson University.

Ruebensaal will be responsible for educating Xitron dealers on flexographic workflow and imaging software, training their technical staff on functionality and use, and introducing Xitron’s concept of prepress independence to a customer audience long resigned to single-vendor choices.

“Patrick’s impact on our customers and dealers will be felt immediately,” said Karen Crews, President of Xitron.  “As we partner with organizations like Anderson & Vreeland to launch products into the flexographic and packaging markets, it’s essential that we hire the most knowledgeable people available. Patrick was at the top of our list.”

Recent growth in market share has necessitated staff expansion in other areas as well. Vanguard Graphics International, Xitron’s parent company, recently named Judy Wallace as Vice President of Finance for the organization at Xitron’s Ann Arbor, Michigan headquarters. In addition, Jennica Graustein has been named Graphic Designer/Marketing Coordinator, and Rachel Datson, Order Fulfillment Coordinator.

“We’re pleased to be in a position of growth during one of the toughest economic climates the print industry has endured,” said Crews. “It speaks well of our products, our people, and our commitment. I’m looking forward to contributions being made by each new member of our team.”
