Eede, the Netherlands, – Ser van de Graaf has been appointed by Xeikon as Area Sales Manager for Document Printing in the UK, Ireland & the Netherlands. He will take the responsibility for sales of Xeikon's dry toner and liquid toner solutions for commercial, direct marketing, book and security applications as well as for digitally printed wall paper.

That is where I believe there is space for high quality communication with strong read and response rates." He is looking forward understanding new markets, particularly the UK: "My personal approach has always been to meet with customers, listen to their wishes and needs to gain the greatest insight and knowledge in order to help customers get more successful."
