Agfa Monotype Hires Ron Iversen as General Manager of OEM Color Group

Press release from the issuing company

Wilmington, Massachusetts, March 19, 2001 - Agfa Monotype Corporation today announced that Ron Iversen has joined the company as general manager of the company's OEM Color Group. Iversen, with over 25 years experience in the digital imaging market, will direct color business aimed at OEMs and systems integrators that build color-enabled products. "We're fortunate to have Ron drive this growing area of our business," said Doug Shaw, senior vice president of OEM business at Agfa Monotype. "We've already had success implementing our color technology with a few key OEMs. However, interest has grown faster than expected, and we needed to give our color solutions a special focus. Ron has stepped in at a very opportune time." "It's exciting to join Agfa Monotype as color technology finds its way from the graphics arts market into a number of office markets," said Iversen. "A major factor that makes Agfa Monotype's color tools so exceptional is that they're based on patented technologies developed by Agfa Corporation for the graphic arts market—a market notoriously demanding of superior image quality. Now, output device manufacturers that produce desktop color printers, copiers, wide-format printers and multifunction devices can benefit from these high-quality color technologies. Input device manufacturers that produce monitors, scanners, digital cameras and video projectors could also benefit from these color technologies." Iversen joined Agfa Monotype from Zenographics, a leading developer of PC-based raster imaging technology, where he served as vice president of sales and marketing. Prior to that, he was president and CEO of Dycam, a pioneer in developing low-cost commercialized digital cameras. Iversen was also senior vice president and general manager of Datametrics, where he was responsible for establishing and growing a commercial division that developed a high-speed color printer based on proprietary technology.
