February 1, 2010 – Mobile, AL and Duiven, The Netherlands – Xante is pleased to announce that David Meldrum has now joined the Xante team as International Account Manager. David joins Xante with a wealth of experience gained over many years working with many prestigious companies including Logic Computer Solutions as General Manager, a major Apple Centre as Corporate Sales Manager and Data Solutions International as National Sales Manager.
David joins Xante having worked at Info-Tec Distribution since 2004. Originally selling the Xante CL30 range, he became highly successful in developing the dealer network in the UK and Ireland selling the world renowned Xante Ilumina. Since Info-Tec launched the Intec range of printers, David has been responsible for developing the international dealer network in Europe, Scandinavia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
Based in the UK and at our European Headquarters in The Netherlands, David is delighted to be joining the Xante team and looks forward to expanding the Xante dealer network throughout Europe.
Says Robert Ross, CEO of Xante “We are excited to have David on board with his extensive knowledge of the international graphic channel. We are planning to announce some unique new products in the near future and David will play a crucial role in their launch.”
Xante is planning on growing their local presence in various key markets throughout the world. Melissa van Gelderen, General Manager of Xante Europe comments “David is the first of many strategically placed account managers who we feel will bring us even closer to our channel partners. Although we already have a very strong network, we feel that locally placed Xante representatives will offer the perfect opportunity to assist our partners directly with open houses, trade shows and customer demonstrations.”
