January 14, 2008 - Mobile, AL - Revving up to support its increasing presence in the Americas, Xanté Corporation today announces the appointment of three new regional sales leaders. Supporting Xanté sales and distribution in the U.S. and Latin American markets, the new sales leaders - Chase Baldwin, Mark Priede and Dale Turner - report to Xanté senior vice president of worldwide sales, Scott Reese.
"Following our acquisition of RIPit earlier this year, and the introduction of several new products at the recent Graph Expo show, we're not only expanding significantly but also generating new demand for Xanté CTP and digital imaging systems. Additionally, we've been working toward broadening our distribution channels in all regions of the Americas," says Reese.
"Baldwin, Priede and Turner each have excellent credentials and a great track record of achievement in the field," he continues. We've therefore promoted them to regional leader positions in order to leverage their experience to further strengthen and expand our ability to support current and new customers."
