Published on November 13, 2014
Mike Peterson, Owner of Gabriel Group in St. Louis and Jeroen van Druenen, Director of Jubels b.v.in Amsterdam sat down with WhatTheyThink to discuss a partnership they formed to service a client’s geographically concentric needs.
Xerox Premier Partners Global Network enabled Gabriel Group in St. Louis and Jubels b.v., Amsterdam, the Netherlands to form a partnership that meets and exceeds customer expectations in servicing their client’s geographically concentric needs.
“To stay relevant and in front of the market in the 1990s, I felt it was important to move into providing on-demand digital printing. Then, with globalization eliminating time and distance barriers for customers, our next step was to be able to provide applications worldwide rather than just print locally.” – Mike Peterson, Chief Executive Officer, Gabriel Group, St. Louis
“You can build very strong relationships with members of the Premier Partners community. We work with partners regularly from Japan, Germany and the UK, as well as the U.S. Some I seek them, some they seek me. They like us because we’re from Amsterdam, one of the major cities in Europe, where we have skills in multiple languages and a great graphic communications tradition.”
– Jeroen van Druenen, Director, Jubels b.v., Amsterdam, the Netherlands
