Roger Mattalon, Vice Chairman of Indigo, To Retired After Long Successful Career

Press release from the issuing company

Maastricht, The Netherlands – After a career spanning more than 30 years in the printing and graphics arts industry, Roger Mattalon, Vice Chairman of Indigo, has retired but will remain a key figure on Indigo’s board of directors. Mattalon’s career with Indigo started in 1994, when he became President of Indigo’s European operations, with the objective of establishing Indigo as the leading supplier of Digital Offset Color presses in Europe. Four years later, with this goal achieved, he became President of Indigo’s Worldwide Sales and Marketing operations, and most recently served as Vice Chairman. Commenting on his career at Indigo, Mattalon remarked, "When I decided to join Indigo in 1994, I knew that I had to be a part of what was going to be one of the most significant technical revolutions of the last century. During the past seven years we have seen radical developments in the area of digital printing in our quest to bring higher quality at lower prices. In today’s climate, both time and versatility are premium commodities and Indigo has embraced this to offer a unique portfolio of products that conventional production processes simply cannot match." During his long and varied career Mattalon has worked for a number of the leading pre-press innovators. Having spent 12 years at Scitex, where he served in various management positions, he eventually became Vice President for Scitex Europe S.A. in 1984. In 1989 he established and served as President of Dai Nippon Screen France S.A., and spent the following five years, until early 1994, as Chairman of the Board of Dai Nippon Screen UK Ltd, and President of Dai Nippon Screen Belgium S.A., where he established Dai Nippon Screen’s European headquarters. Benny Landa, Indigo founder, chairman and CEO, stated, "Roger Mattalon came to Indigo seven years ago, when Indigo Europe virtually didn't yet exist. The first thing he did was to surround himself with top-notch professionals that proceeded to build Indigo Europe into what became the jewel in Indigo's crown - and the source of nearly half of Indigo's revenues. Roger melded seven countries - UK, Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg - into a single cohesive organization. In addition, Roger built our dealer network in Europe, Africa and Latin America. The strength of Indigo today is in no small measure thanks to Roger Mattalon." Mattalon concludes, "My time at Indigo has been the most enjoyable of my entire career, and I have been privileged throughout to work with extraordinary people who have the most amazing shared vision of the future."
